Chelsea thrashed their London rivals Arsenal 4-1 and concluded the 2018/19 campaign with the trophy in the Europa League final with Eden Hazard’s two brilliant goals.
After a season of relentless turmoil under a manager who is loathed by many supporters, winning Europa League with a collective performance suggests the future might well, be bright for the club after all.
After a goalless first half, ex-Arsenal striker Oliver Giroud broke the deadlock just after the break and headed home an Emerson cross to put his team one-up.
The Blues doubled their lead 10 minutes later when Pedro diverted a cross from Hazard beyond Petr Cech.
On the 65th minute Eden Hazard stroked home a penalty which was resulted from a collision between defender Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Giroud.
Alex Iwobi struck a goal back for Arsenal but Chelsea restored their three-goal cushion in the seventy-second minute when Hazard swapped passes with Giroud to score for Chelsea his second goal.
This victory marks Chelsea’s third European title in seven years whereas Arsenal has lost five of their six major European finals.
With two magnificent goals Baku final will be forever be known as Hazard’s final and it could hardly have been more spectacular.
