Stamford Bridge—London

Chelsea 3-1 Basel


Chelsea booked their place in the UEFA Europa League final at the Amsterdam ArenA with a 3-1 home win over FC Basel.

Mohammed Salah shocked the hosts seconds before the break with a sweetly-struck effort, but the Blues came roaring out of the blocks in the second half.

Fernando Torres bundled home the equaliser after Frank Lampard's shot was saved, then Victor Moses gave his side the lead a minute later with another tap-in.

David Luiz's thunderbolt from 25 yards sealed the win, and despite Basel's good play they exit the competition.
