Chelsea end trophy-winning season with win

22/05/2017

Goals from Willian, Eden Hazard, Pedro and a brace from Michy Batshuayi secured Chelsea a 5-1 win in their last match of the season, their 30th victory in a record-breaking campaign!

Club captain and Chelsea legend John Terry played the first 26 minutes of the match, before going off to a standing ovation and a guard of honour from his teammates.

Gary Cahill, who replaced John Terry, joined a familiar team. Thibaut Courtois had a back three in front of him, with David Luiz and Cesar Azpilicueta taking the other two spots.

N'Golo Kante, Cesc Fabregas, Victor Moses and Marcos Alonso played across the midfield. Diego Costa was supported by Willian and Hazard up front.

The celebratory atmosphere was dented when Sunderland scored early on from a corner, but the Blues came straight back.

Some neat passing around the Sunderland box ended with the ball at Willian's feet. The Brazilian made no mistake, hammering a low drive in to the net to score his 12th of the season!

Chelsea were then in complete control, but it took until the second half for them to go ahead.

As has often been the case this season, it was Eden Hazard who broke the deadlock.

The Belgian beat a Sunderland defender on the outside, before thumping it past Jordan Pickford in the Black Cats goal. It was Hazard's 17th goal of the season!

Batshuayi and Pedro then came on for Diego Costa and Hazard. As usual, Conte's changes had an immediate impact.

Pedro got Chelsea's third and his 13th of the season, pouncing on a Fabregas long-ball that the Sunderland defence failed to deal with and heading home.

Batshuayi's late brace put the icing on the cake. The Chelsea striker scored his third and fourth goal in just three games in the 90th and 92nd minutes.

Pedro set Batshuayi up for the first goal, with a great through-ball that the Belgian striker stretched to reach and put in through Jordan Pickford's legs.

Chelsea's final goal was all Batshuayi. The striker drove in from the right wing, beat a defender and then curled an unstoppable shot past Pickford.

The Premier League celebrations started in earnest, but the season is not over yet: Chelsea now look to the FA Cup final next weekend, when they face Arsenal at Wembley!
