The video will start in 8 Cancel Chelsea are looking to end their season on a high by beating Arsenal in the Europa League final.

UEFA’s rules for the Champions League group stage draw dictate that the winners of the Europa League will be seeded in pot 1 for the draw - which would put Chelsea alongside some of the continent’s bigger clubs.



Manchester City, Juventus, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Zenit St. Petersburg are guaranteed to be in that pot, along with the winners of the Bundesliga, Champions League and Europa League.



If Chelsea do not win the Europa League, the Blues coefficient ranking puts them in pot 2 and would guarantee being drawn alongside Barcelona, PSG, Zenit, Juventus or the Bundesliga winners.

That means Chelsea would avoid such big clubs by winning the Europa League and securing a spot alongside them in pot 1, although there are still some big names to avoid.

The Blues secured a top-four finish and a spot in the Champions League next season, easing the pressure ahead of the trip to Azerbaijan, but securing a trophy would provide Maurizio Sarri with ammunition against his critics.
