Chelsea have emerged the 2019 Europa League champions as they demolished Arsenal 4-1 in the final match played on Wednesday.
After a goalless first half, the match came to life when Olivier Giroud opened scoring for Chelsea.
Emerson hit an early, flat cross from the left and Giroud got across his defender to send in a flying, thumping header into the corner from about 12 yards out on 49th minute of the match.
Pedro doubled Chelsea’s advantage. It was absolutely clinical from Pedro. Eight years after scoring against Manchester United in the Champions League final, he’s at it again.
Eden Hazard gets on the left of the area, finds the right pass, of course, and Pedro rather scuffs a left-footed finish across Petr Cech and into the corner.
On 65th minute Eden Hazard’s penalty made it 3-0 for Chelsea.
The Belgian number 10 sends Petr Cech the wrong way and just passes it into the back of the net.
Alex Iwobi reduced the tally as he put one back for Arsenal. It was a great goal for the Nigerian international.
Arsenal have a corner, it’s not dealt with and Alex Iwobi, who’s only just come on, lets it bounce about 22 yards out and then just nonchalantly sends a dipping shot into the far corner with the outside of his boot!
Chelsea sealed the victory as Hazard scored his brace on 72nd minute.
Hazard sends Olivier Giroud into the penalty area, wide left. He brings out a lob wedge to lift the ball back into the path of Hazard, and he controls a calm finish past Petr Cech and into the back of the net.
