Midfielder says chance to win a trophy is not Arsenal's sole focus for tonight's Europa League final against Chelsea

Arsenal take on Chelsea in the UEFA Europa League final tonight but for Granit Xhaka and the Gunners there is much more than a trophy at stake.

The midfielder not only wants to lift Arsenal's first European trophy for 25 years, he also hopes for a win that would secure UEFA Champions League football at Emirates Stadium for the first time in three seasons.

"A club like Arsenal has to be in the Champions League," said Xhaka, whose team missed out on the top four by one point, to the club's official website.

"We want to give us, club and fans the Champions League back. It is a big game, it is a trophy and we can go back to the Champions League."
