Chelsea have shown that they are leagues ahead when it comes to the Europa League.

The Blues have madre it a point of duty not to make it to the Europa League, but when the club eventually finds itself in the Europa League, we go on to win the trophy – something Arsenal, Tottenham and even Manchester United can’t boast of.

Villarreal beat Manchester United in the Europa League final on Wednesday night, as Unai Emery led the Spanish side to a phenomenal victory.

For Chelsea, a record was set in place despite not being a part of the competition.

Unai Emery is a serial winner when it comes to the Europa League, having led Sevilla to three consecutive Europa League triumphs.

Interestingly, Emery has now won four Europa League trophies, and the only time he has lost in the final, was to Chelsea.

Meanwhile, Chelsea fans have taken a dig at Manchester United since their loss to Villarreal in the Europa League final.
