Chelsea’s fans have reacted to their side’s 4-3 win against Slavia Prague this evening, the Blues were 4-1 up at halftime but conceded two quick-fire goals in the second half.
The Blues were fantastic in the opening 45 minutes, Sarri-ball certainly looked like it was in full swing as the side played free-flowing attacking football. The west London club were 4-1 up after just 27 minutes.
Winger Pedro was at the centre of almost everything in the first-half, the Spaniard scored a brace and also produced this shocking Miss of the Season contender. Take a look at it here.
Chelsea had their backs against the walls after the break though as Petr Sevcik scored a quick-fire double to put the pressure back on the Blues. Sarri’s side are very fortunate, they won’t get away with their heads dropping for a single moment in the Premier League or the Semi-Finals of the Europa League.
Fans will be expecting Sarri to guide the Blues to the final:
Maurizio Sarri has reached the semi-final of a European competition for the first time in his managerial career.

– Very good first-half, shocking second.
– Going forward we were fine, but defensive we were embarrassing.
– Started to notice issues with Keoa and long-range shots/goals.
– Pedro was good, Kova/Barkley were poor.
– Thankfully we’re through.

The Blues must now focus their attention on the Premier League, Sarri’s side are currently fifth in the league but a dip in form at the start of March, which saw the side squander two good chances of getting six points on the board against Wolves and Everton – has seen the side’s chances of finishing in the top four plummet.
