Premier League make history after producing all 4 finalists for UEFA competitions

Premier League made history on the European stage after producing all four clubs to contend for both the Champions League and Europa League titles this season.

Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur progressed to the final of UCL earlier in the week following their incredible comebacks against Barcelona and Ajax at the semifinal stage.

The Reds, despite suffering a 3-0 defeat at the Camp Nou last week defiled all odds and inflicted a 4-0 hammering on the Catalans at Anfield a week later, despite injury concerns with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino missing out in the second leg of the round.

Georginio Wijnaldum and Divock Origi stepped up for the Merseyside outfit to reach their second successive final after losing 3-1 to Real Madrid last season.

Tottenham on the other hand booked a ticket to Madrid following their 3-2 win over Ajax at the Johan Cruijff Arena on Wednesday, May 8.

Lucas Moura scored a hat-trick to ensure Spurs go through on away goals rule despite trailing by three goals on aggregate at half time in the second leg.

Meanwhile, Arsenal and Chelsea will face off one more time this season, but this time in the Europa League final after both sides defeated their opponents at the last four stage.

The Gunners cruised to the final with 7-3 aggregate win over Spanish side Valencia, while the Blues needed penalties to edged Eintracht Frankfurt out of the tournament.

Apart from the Premier League producing all four clubs in the UEFA cup finals this season, London will also become the first ever city to have three teams compete in the two competitions.

Though, Spanish teams have won the titles in a single season in the past - with Real Madrid winning the Champions League and Sevilla carting away the Europa League glory.

However, this is the first ever season all clubs from a single league will be contending for the two titles.

Daily Mail reports that former Tottenham and Chelsea midfielder Glenn Hoddle was delighted to see English teams dominating on the European stage once again.

He said after Chelsea's win over Frankfurt: "It's wonderful for English football, and you can only see those four clubs getting stronger.

"Don't be surprised if finals will be full of English teams [in the future]. Let's celebrate this season. All four teams should be proud of the way they played.

Chelsea will host Arsenal at the Baku Olympic Stadium on May 29, while the epic battle between Liverpool and Tottenham will go down on June 1 at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a hat-trick in the game while Alexandre Lacazette scored once to see the Gunners claim 4-2 win over their Spanish opposition.

The north Londoners will now battle Chelsea in the final of the competition later this month.
