Arsenal's Europa League quarter-final legs could be reversed to accommodate Chelsea if they are draw at home on the same day.

The draw for the last eight of the Europa League takes place on Friday and UEFA has confirmed that if both sides are drawn to play at home in the same week, the order of Arsenal's legs would have to be switched.

UEFA said the decision was made by local authorities, who do not want both Londo clubs to be playing in the city on the same day.

According to UEFA Club Competitions Committee principles, it is Arsenal's tie which will be altered in this situation due to Chelsea having higher priority after winning the FA Cup.

There will also be a fixture reversal in the semi-final for the same reason should both clubs progress to the last four.

Lucas Digne fit to face West Ham.
Everton defender Lucas Digne has been declared fit to face West Ham this weekend. Speaking ahead of the game against West Ham, as reported by Paul Joyce, Marco Silva confirmed the fitness boost for the Toffees. Digne had previously been a doubt for the game at the London Stadium, but he is now expected to feature. The Frenchman has enjoyed a solid first season in the Premier League after joining the club from Barcelona and he’ll be hoping to take that form into Saturday’s game. The meeting over the weekend will put two European hopefuls up against one another, with the possibility of securing Europa League qualification still available as the season draws to a close.
