Sarri puts Chelsea in Champions League

Maurizio Sarri has steered Chelsea into the Champions League, leaving Arsenal and Manchester United behind them in the Premier League.

Today’s 3-0 victory over Watford at Stamford Bridge mathematically secured their place in the top European competition for next season.

Gonzalo Higuain, on loan from Juventus, was on target along with Ruben Loftus-Cheek and David Luiz.

It put Chelsea in third place, one point ahead of Tottenham Hotspur.

Arsenal and Manchester United only played dour stalemates and are therefore out of the running for the top four.

Sarri also took Chelsea to the Carabao Cup Final, lost on penalties to Manchester City, and they are in the Europa League semi-finals.
