With just the Europa League final left to play for the Blues, all in all, it has been a successful season as Sarri approaches the end of his first campaign in England inside the top four.
Chelsea have had to fight their way into the top four in what has been a truly remarkable season of English football.
Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester United all battled and fought for the final two Champions League places, but following the Blues’ good end to the season, they secured their place back among the big boys of European football.
However, a great run in the Europa League has seen the English side join Arsenal in Baku for the final of the competition.
Maurizio Sarri will be looking to add silverware to his first season after they narrowly missed out on lifting the Carabao Cup, losing to Premier League champions Manchester City.
As the season draws to a close, we have picked out five things that we have learnt throughout Chelsea’s 2018/19 season.
A goal-scoring striker is needed
The Blues have been unable to find the right striker in recent seasons with Morata not finding his feet and neither has Higuain since arriving in January.
If Chelsea want to secure top four again next season or even being able to compete with the top two, identifying and signing a striker in the summer is key.
Domination in Europe
Chelsea have been great to watch in the Europa League this year and they deserve their place in the final.
The Blues have picked up some big victories in the group stages and had to put in some professional performances throughout the knock-out stages. It wasn’t always easy, but a major European trophy is a real possibility for the Blues this season.
A job well done from Sarri
Questions were asked of Maurizio Sarri when he left his post at Napoli to become the Chelsea boss and he has been on the end of ruthless criticism.
However, he has led his side to a top-four finish, a Carabao Cup final and a European final that is yet to come.
With a place in the Champions League confirmed, plus a Europa League final is not a bad start to his first season in England.
Defensive woes need to be eliminated
The one area that has let Chelsea down at times this season has been their defence, in some cases, it has been hard to see if some of the players are good enough.
Chelsea were hammered 6-0 by Manchester City earlier this year and that’s when it became clear that the club need to rejuvenate their backline.
With Andreas Christenson, Antonio Rudiger and Ethan Ampadu still young and exciting, it wouldn’t surprise me if they play a big part in the side next season.
Eden Hazard star man again
Hazard has yet again been one of the best players in the Premier League and some even consider him as one of the best worldwide.
His goals and assists have played a major part in Chelsea’s success this campaign and it makes you wonder what they would be like without him.
However, he is heavily linked to Real Madrid and with some reports claiming he will announce his departure after the Europa League final.
Losing a player of his quality would be a massive loss to the club but it gives the way for someone else to step in to his shoes.
