Well, that was fun!
Another trophy for the trophy cabinet, made all the more fun by denying Arsenal next year’s Champions League!
It was a terrible first half, but a much better second. Inconsistent to the end, but this time it works in our advantage.
A first trophy for Sarri, Kepa. A last trophy for Hazard.
It’s a day to celebrate and have fun. There are plenty of things to be concerned in the future, near- and long-term, but for right now, this is a good moment.
- Lineup as expected, with the pleasant surprise that Kanté was passed fit. Just barely. And then he goes the distance. Warrior.
- Chelsea go through the entire Europa League campaign undefeated.
- Ex-Arsenal Giroud scoring on ex-Chelsea Čech one of those surreal moments. Giroud’s 11 goals for the season most since Shearer in 2004-05.
- Standing ovation for Hazard. All the feels.
- Next up: off-season! Silly Season!
