CL qualification clinched. Let's go win that Europa League Trophy.

1-0 at the half.

Great to see RLC healthy and playing well. His combination of size and technical ability gives us something that nobody else on the roster can.

Congrats on the win. Nervy game to watch as a neutral. Yugoslavia put up a heck of a fight.

Chelsea finish the EPL with 72 points (2 more than last season) and plus 24 in the goals department (same as last season with one more goal scored and allowed).

That's good enough for third place this season, and if we win the Europa, then I'll give Sarri a B- on the season.

I echo your evaluation. Hoping we cap it off with Europa hardware so I can say "Champions of Europe - Lite!"

Hard to complain given the lack of improvement in the squad. 3rd place and Europa league would be a good season IMO.

The end result is acceptable given the change in manager, style of play, and minimal investment, but I can't help but be disappointed with the path we took to get there.

I expected the team to struggle out of the gate and steadily grow as the season went on. We came out red hot, went ice cold, and finished extremely inconsistent. What saved us in the end was the individual brilliance of one player - not free flowing team football Sarri played at Napoli.

Does Chelsea in May beat Chelsea from September? I don't know that we do, and that's a big problem.

This team needs goal scorers, and if we don't address it this summer, we may not get as lucky in the table next season.

I've seen enough of the current front 4. Hazard is gone. Gonzo and Olivia aren't good enough. Pedro and William are undersized has beens. Pedro was dreadful today.

I'm all for a full on youth movement. We aren't finishing Top 4 next year, so why not?

Absolutely gutted to see RLC injured again, especially playing in a meaningless friendly on a **** pitch.

I've done that myself and the rehab is no joke. I feel bad for both of these young kids.

Sarri out and Lampard in. I don't think this is a good idea.

Maybe not, maybe it is a great idea.

I think Lamps would be harder on the youngsters and force players to become leaders within. That is something I feel has been lacking around the club for too long.

Cech is coming back as sporting director. Super Frank as manager? Are we getting the band back together?

First half looked like a friendly, but Hazard was warming up to the idea of playing some football before the half. This match is dying for him to grab it by the scruff.

Pedro makes it 2-0 and Hazard with the penalty to make it 3-0.

Arsenal pull one back, but Hazard with the brace to make it 4-1. I want to see that hat trick.

And it's all over at 4-1.

Champions of Europa!

And the manager leaves. So we can draw a line under this season.
