A London Derby in Baku and ‘Sarri-ball’ finally brings a trophy as Maurizio Sarri wins his first ever major trophy as a manager.
Should it be signing off for Eden Hazard and/or Maurizio Sarri at the end of this season, it will be a perfect way to do so.
Chelsea won the 2019 Europa League and denied Arsenal a spot in next season’s Champions League group stage.
It was Chelsea’s second title in the competition after winning their first in 2013. They went through the entire competition without suffering a single defeat.
The match result handed Lyon direct qualification to next season’s Champions League group stage over Arsenal.
Eden Hazard scored two goals in what might be his last match for Chelsea.
It took just 3 minutes after the re-start for the deadlock be broken after a goalless first-half.
Olivier Giroud opened the scoring for the match in the second-half to give Chelsea a lead over his former club.
Sarri took Chelsea to two cup finals and secured Champions League football from the league.
