Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso has trolled London rivals Arsenal ahead of their Europa League final meeting.

The two London clubs meet in Baku, Azerbaijan in an all-English Europa League final and the Chelsea left-back has been speaking ahead of the all-important game.

In his pre-match thoughts, Spanish international Marcos Alonso told reporters that Chelsea players are used to winning trophies unlike what’s obtainable at Arsenal at the moment.

According to him, the experience of winning trophies might be useful for the Chelsea players who are bidding to end the season with a trophy by beating Arsenal to the Europa League title for this season.

The Gunners have the greater need for the trophy arguably as it would guarantee passage into the Champions League for next season.

The Europa League winner will automatically qualify for the group stage of next season’s Champions League and Arsenal can use that avenue to return to Europe’s premier club competition after a two-year absence.

The Gunners were unable to qualify for the Champions League through the league route after they came up short via a fifth-placed finish.

Unlike Arsenal, Chelsea have already qualified for the Champions League final after they finished third in the Premier League.

Only the top four teams are guaranteed a place in the Champions League via the league route.
