Chelsea star, Ross Barkley has said his blues side is hungry to end the season with Europa League title when they meet Arsenal in Baku for the final.
Barkley said this after he scored a brace for Chelsea in their 3-0 win against New England Revolution in the ‘Final Whistle on Hate’ charity game in the Gillette Stadium in the United States.
”It’s a good cause and always good to take part in things like this. Now we get a few days rest and then we’re back at it with all our focus on the Europa League final.
”We’re all excited. We’re trying to bring that trophy home. Everyone in the dressing room is hungry to win it. Some of them have won it before. Trophies are special to every players. We’ve won trophies and we want to win more. This means everything to us.’
There are familiar foes waiting in Azerbaijan. The London rivals won one game each when they met in the Premier League this season.
”It will be a tough game,’ said 25-year-old Barkley.
”It’s always competitive. It’s a derby. So we’ll be up for it and I’m sure they will.
”We’ve had our ups and downs this season but we’ve come through it strong and we’ve learned a lot. It bodes well for next season. We’ll be better for it.
‘Our next target is to win the Europa League. Then we’ll set our targets for next season but this is a massive club. We want trophies.
”We want to win the Premier League. Every competition we’re in, we’re in to win.’
