Here are the twitter reactions on Chelsea beating Eintracht Frankfurt to enter the finals.
Chelsea were held 1-1 by Eintracht Frankfurt and the game went down to penalties. Blues shot-stopper, who famously protested to stay on during the league cup finals was the match-winner as he saved two penalties to carry his side to the finals.
With this victory, all four English sides have qualified for the Champions League and Europa League finals. Liverpool and Tottenham will face off in the Champions League, whilst Chelsea will face off Arsenal in the Europa League finals.
First-half strike from Ruben Loftus Cheek proved to be the difference going into the half time. But, Frankfurt’s talisman Luka Jovic took in charge of a situation when David Luiz went to sleep. The Serbian International tucked the ball in from a one-v-one situation to restore parity in the aggregate score.
Sebastian Haller’s ball was cleared off the line by David Luiz in the extra time and the game went down to penalties. Cesar Azpilicueta missed the penalty, but Kepa bounced back with two saves to take them to the finals. Eden Hazard scored the final spot-which saw them head to Baku.
Here are the Twitter reactions between Chelsea and Frankfurt.
FIRST TIME EVER! 🙌

We do love a bit of glorious unpredictability.
The evident problems within that Chelsea performance can take a back seat for now.
Our City, our stadium, our penalty shootout.
Kepa man of the match & duly atoned for his Wembley sin.
EH10 🐐 the last word ⚽#cfc#CHEFRA

Jorginho – aka “Jo Jo” – didn’t need a bandage to do it tonight. Without his regular partner, Kanté, Jorginho stepped the eff up.
He put forward a hero’s performance and was crucial in helping Chelsea pave the path to Baku and the Europa League final.

Valencia 2-4 Arsenal
The first 10 minutes made me worry, but after we got the equalizer it was never in doubt. Absolute demolition job at the Mestalla. Brilliant performance! Auba scoring a hat-trick was the icing on the cake. London derby in the final against Chelsea. #COYG #UEL pic.twitter.com/BwnuJPuyiT

UEFA must host the Europa League in a neutral ground in London. Say… the new Spurs ground, so that either Arsenal or Chelsea can win the first trophy there. For the planet, of course. For the Enviroment. That’s the only reason.
