Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, has admitted that his side were second best, after they were thumped 4-1 by Chelsea in the Europa League final.
Eden Hazard netted a brace, as Maurizio Sarri’s side outclassed the Gunners in Baku.
Emery was looking to continue his love affair with this competition and end the Gunners’ 25-year wait for continental success in his first season.
But Arsenal collapsed in the second half.
“First is congratulations to Chelsea.
“In the first half we played with good opportunities to take a good result. We got to the box with good options and chances to score but the first goal changed the game.
“We tried to stay in the match but their second goal made it difficult for us. It was going better for them and when we wanted to do something, we couldn’t find what we needed to score. They deserved to win,” Unai Emery told BT Sport.
