Ahead of the Europa League quarter-final draw which takes place on Friday at 12pm (UK), can we remind all supporters wishing to attend either match not to book any travel arrangements until the details have been officially confirmed by Uefa.
Arsenal and Chelsea will not play a home Europa League quarter-final match on the same night, therefore the dates of the home ties could be switched.
As soon as we receive official confirmation from Uefa on the match details, we will publish across our channels.
For further clarity, please find below announcement from Uefa:
"Arsenal FC’s UEFA Europa League quarter-final tie could potentially be reversed.
"Following a decision made by the relevant local authorities, Chelsea FC and Arsenal FC cannot play at home on the same night. Should both clubs be drawn within the same sequence (home or away), the team having the lower priority – in this case Arsenal FC because Chelsea FC won the FA Cup - will be reversed in accordance with the Uefa Club Competitions Committee principles.
"The match schedule for the quarter-finals (including a potential reversal involving Arsenal FC) will be communicated to all parties at approximately 14.45 CET on Friday, March 15 (13.45 UK time).
"The calendar for the semi-finals (including a potential reversal involving Arsenal FC, for the same reasons, if both clubs from London are still remaining in the competition) will be communicated to all parties on April 20 at the latest."
