It was total domination for Chelsea on Wednesday night against Arsenal in the UEFA Europa League Final. The Blues destroyed the Gunners by a 4-1 final score to take home the trophy.

The Europa League crown is the second in the history of Chelsea, as they also won the final of the second-level European competition in the 2012-13 season.

Chelsea had little problem taking care of Arsenal on Wednesday night despite not scoring until the second half of the game. The Blues looked to be in control of the match during the first 45 minutes of play even though they were not able to convert their superiority into any goals.

Striker Olivier Giroud finally put Chelsea on the board in the 49th minute with the first goal of the game. After Pedro scored the second goal for Chelsea in the 60th minute, Eden Hazard scored two goals in the final 25 minutes of play.

This was more than enough for Chelsea, as only was only able to net a single Alex Iwobi goal all night.

Eden Hazard, who announced his intent to move on from Chelsea after the match, had a memorable final night of his Blues career in Baku.

Only one more game in European soccer remains to be played this season, when Liverpool meets Tottenham for the Champions League title on Saturday.
