Though they had to wait another week to lift the title, Chelsea began their celebrations early after the match.
Chelsea’s team included a lot of rare starts, with the likes of Kennady and Ake in the first XI. Another player who started was John Terry who was playing his last game at Stamford bridge. Would it be a good one? It started well as he scored the opener.
But next he would assist Watford in the equalizer as Capoue pounced on his short header. His smile was wiped. However, when the next 2 went in his smile widened. One of the goals came from the league winner, Michy Batshuayi who also started and celebrated a 3rd goal this season. Was it over at 3 – 1. No! Daryl Janmaat’S EXCELLENT solo goal and Doucore’s tight spaced strike got Watford leval again. Would the celebrations be that good with this result.
Chelsea had a lot more chances and Conte made all of his changes, desperate for the win. No player wanted victory as much as John Terry. Once again Antonio Conte, the master manager brought on just the right man. Cesc Fabregas. He scored a bouncing shot and won it in the 88th minute.
