Four Findings: Chelsea 3-0 Dynamo Kyiv

Four Findings: Chelsea 3-0 Dynamo Kyiv Chelsea eased to a 3-0 victory against Dynamo Kyiv in the first leg of their Europa League round of 16 fixture. The Blues headed into the game as firm favourites and duly delivered with a professional display at Stamford Bridge. Maurizio Sarri made several changes to his starting line-up following the 2-1 win at Fulham in the Premier League on Sunday, with Eden Hazard dropping to the bench. Pedro opened the scoring for Chelsea and could have netted a hatful but for some wasteful finishing.The hosts continued to probe the Kyiv defence and went two up courtesy of a finely-executed free-kick from Willian, which arrowed into the top corner.

Olivier Giroud opened the scoring after five minutes before doubling his tally for the evening with another goal in the 33rd minute.

Marcos Alonso proceeded to wrap the game up by half-time for the visitors as he scored just before the interval.

Giroud bagged his hat-trick in the 59th minute to ensure he would be taking the match ball home from Kiev.

Callum Hudson-Odoi wrapped the win up for the Blues as he continued his form in the Europa League.

Take a look at four findings from the match, as Chelsea booked their place in the final eight of the competition.

Chelsea report alleged racist abuse to UEFA.
Chelsea have confirmed that they have sent a formal complaint to UEFA, stating that winger Callum Hudson-Odoi was the target of alleged racist abuse from Dynamo Kyiv supporters during the Europa League clash in Ukraine last Thursday. While Chelsea themselves do not name the player in question, Sky Sports News have reported that it is indeed Hudson-Odoi. The 18-year-old winger was subject to alleged monkey chants from sections of the home crowd shortly before the referee blew for the full-time whistle as Chelsea ran out 5-0 winners.
