Chelsea Wins the Europa League, Hazard Leaves!


Chelsea won the Europa League and Eden Hazard is leaving Chelsea next season. Arsenal was defeated by Chelsea in the Europa League final in Baku. Arsenal having finished fifth in the Premier League, are now consigned to another season outside the Champions League.

However, Eden Hazard appeared to confirm his Chelsea exit after scoring twice in his side's 4-1 Europa League final defeat of Arsenal.  

His brace helped Maurizio Sarri claim his first major trophy as Chelsea crushed Arsenal on Wednesday.

Olivier Giroud sparked the landslide against his former employers in the 49th minute before Pedro put a second past retiring Gunners goalkeeper Petr Cech.

In perhaps his final appearance before a mooted move to Real Madrid, star man Hazard struck two second half goals to confirm Chelsea's second triumph in six seasons in this competition."I think it's a goodbye but in football you never know.

My dream was to play in the Premier League. I played here for seven years for one of the biggest clubs in the world and maybe it's time for a new challenge," Hazard said while speaking to a reporter immediately after the match.
