Chelsea thrashed Arsenal 4-1 in Baku last night in the Europa League final, to lift their first piece of silverware of the Maurizio Sarri era.
The defeat consigned Arsenal to another season of Europa League football with the Gunners having to win to qualify for the Champions League.
Now, all attentions turn to Saturday when Spurs take on Liverpool in the final of the Champions League in the Spanish capital. Both teams will go into the game full of confidence after producing fantastic comebacks in the second legs of their respective semi-final clashes to book a place in Madrid.
With neither Klopp nor Pochettino having won any silverware during their time in English football, the game on Saturday represents a great opportunity for one of the two to break their duck by landing the biggest trophy in European football.
Former Spurs and Chelsea midfielder Glenn Hoddle took to social media to congratulate the Blues on their Europa League triumph and wish Spurs good luck in their big final on Saturday.

It’s great for Tottenham that Arsenal lost last night’s final as the game on Saturday will now be a free hit for the Lilywhites. If the Gunners had won the Europa League, then Arsenal fans would have jumped on the opportunity to take digs at Tottenham if they come unstuck against Liverpool.
