Europa League squad of the season

The Europa League squad of the season has been confirmed with Chelsea players dominating after their triumph in the competition.

UEFA Europa League Squad of the season

Chelsea thumped Arsenal 4-1 last week mid-week to win the Europa League.

Chelsea have eight of the 18 players chosen in the 2018-19 squad of the season.

Europa League final goalscorers Olivier Giroud, Pedro and Eden Hazard are all selected, as is Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, who played his heroic part in the semi-final penalty shoot-out win over Eintracht Frankfurt.

Defender David Luiz alongside skipper Azpilicueta also made it, as did two of Sarri's first-choice midfield, Jorginho and N'Golo Kante.

On a sad note, two Chelsea stars, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek (though are struck with injuries) they made significant marks at the beginning of the competition with even an hat-trick to the name of RLC. It's sad to see and know they're missing on the 18-man UEFA Europa League squad, despite their superb performances.

Meanwhile, Giroud, who opened the scoring against his former club in Baku, finished as the competition's top scorer with 11 goals.

Pedro weighed in with five goals and three assists, while Hazard scored twice what looks set to prove his farewell appearance in a Chelsea shirt before an expected move to Real Madrid.

Also named in the squad was Frankfurt's Luka Jovic, who finished as the second topscorer, believed to be on Chelsea's radar this summer transfer window.
