What teams could be involved?
Arsenal and Chelsea’s progression to the Europa League final mean it is the first time that all four European final spots will be taken up by English teams.
The Gunners emphatically beat Valencia to secure their place, while Chelsea needed penalties to see of Frankfurt.
The two London sides will fight it out for the trophy and a place in the Uefa Super Cup, where they will meet the winner of Champions League finalists Tottenham and Liverpool.
The Reds produced their greatest comeback of all-time to beat La Liga champions Barcelona for a spot in Madrid on June 1.
Meanwhile, Tottenham enjoyed their own fightback to get past Ajax – despite being 3-0 down on aggregate at half-time.
That means that more football history in England has been created, with it being the first time two English sides will battle it out for the Uefa Super Cup.
