Tottenham will play in their first ever Champions League final

This is the first time there’s been an all-Premier League Champions League final since Manchester United beat Chelsea in 2008.

Meanwhile, Arsenal booked their place in Baku with a comfortable victory over Valencia, going through 7-3 on aggregate while Chelsea were made to sweat by a dangerous Eintracht Frankfurt side but made it through on penalties.

The last time two English sides reached the final of this competition was in 1972 when Tottenham beat Wolves, which was the first final of the UEFA Cup tournament.

The Premier League is well and truly back!
