With a three-goal lead heading to Ukraine, Chelsea just needed to manage a strong, defensive result at the minimum to advance. The Blues did that and then some.

Olivier Giroud continued his incredible UEFA Europa League goalscoring exploits, scoring a hat trick as Chelsea routed Dynamo Kiev, 5-0 on Thursday afternoon. The hat trick takes Giroud to nine goals in as many games. Despite his success in Europe, he has just one Premier League goal this season, and has struggled to get starting minutes in league matches.

Either way, it’s a convincing win for a Chelsea team that looked on the verge of being coachless just a few weeks ago, and is now into the Europa League quarterfinals.

Pedro leads Chelsea to win over Spurs

Pedro leads Chelsea to win over Spurs Kieran Trippier's was one more ball on frame than his entire attack managed at the other end. Tottenham is now nine points back of Liverpool and eight back of Man City, sitting just four points clear of Arsenal ahead of the North London Derby.

Eden Hazard laid off for Higuain after a terrible giveaway from Hugo Lloris, but the Argentine spun his shot wide of the far post.

Callum Hudson-Odoi bolstered his claims to start with a goal and an assist while Marcos Alonso scored Chelsea’s third of the day just before halftime.

Controversial opening goal, Sterling's hat trick lead Man City past Watford.
Gerard Deulofeu scored for the Hornets, who will feel aggrieved that Sterling's seemingly offside first goal was ruled onside.
