Chelsea overcame Unai Emery's side in Azerbaijan on Wednesday night as they produced an accomplished second-half display to the Europa League.

The fixture felt more like a post-season friendly than it did a European final as thousands of empty seats were visible at the Baku Olympic Stadium after supporters were unable to make the 2,500-mile trip to eastern Europe.

After a goalless first-half, Maurizio Sarri's side took the lead just four minutes after the restart as former Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud headed from Emerson's lofted ball.

The Blues doubled their advantage soon after as Pedro's scuffed effort made its way past goalkeeper Petr Cech. Five minutes later, Ainsley Maitland-Niles was adjudged to have brought down Giroud in the box as Hazard slotted home from the ensuing penalty kick.

The Gunners brought on substitute Alex Iwobi, who gave them a glimmer of hope after scoring just four minutes later with a stunning half-volley from outside the box.

However, it wasn't to be for Arsenal as Chelsea wrapped up the final with a fourth goal. Giroud showed brilliant awareness to find Hazard in the box, who steered past Cech with ease to seal the Blues' second Europa League trophy.
