Chelsea made it five wins in five tries in the Europa League with a convincing 4-0 win against 10-man PAOK at Stamford Bridge on Thursday.

Olivier Giroud scored two first-half goals -- taking his tally to four in his last three games -- to set the hosts on their way after PAOK had Yevhen Khacheridi shown a straight red card in the seventh minute for tripping the France international just outside the penalty area.

Chelsea starlet Callum Hudson-Odoi then beat PAOK goalkeeper Alexandros Paschalakis at the near post with a low line drive before setting up Alvaro Morata to head home the Blues' fourth goal from an inch-perfect cross.

Maurizio Sarri's side were already through to the round of 32 as group winners and play their final match before the knockout rounds against Hungarian side Vidi.
