Chelsea Defeat Arsenal To Claim Europa Cup in Baku
Chelsea defeat Arsenal 4 – 1 to claim their third Europa league cup on Wednesday night in Baku.
Eden Hazard gave the Blues a well deserved victory with two goals after an opener from Giroud, a former Arsenal forward.
Post Match comment, Giroud –
“I think it was a good final. We were better and more efficient in the second half. I am very proud because this team deserved to win something. We lost the League Cup against City, but this one is special, the second-best European championship. Obviously I left so many friends in Arsenal, the club changed my life, gave me the opportunity to live my dream of playing in the Premier League. I owe them a lot, so I will never forget and that’s why I didn’t want to celebrate. But on another side, I am so proud to win this trophy with Chelsea, I’m now a true blue. I feel blessed.”

It was a disappointing evening for the gunners as the club will not participate in the Uefa champions league next season but will settle for the Europa cup.
According to Unai Emery,
“Firstly, congratulations to Chelsea. In the first half, we worked hard and made some chances to score. The match was going well. The first goal changed all, and the second goal made it difficult for us. We could not find the capacity to score.”
