Substitute Cesc Fabregas scored an 88th-minute victor as new Premier League champions Chelsea edged Watford 4-3 in a richly entertaining game at Stamford Bridge on Monday.

Chelsea will be presented with the Premier League trophy on Sunday in their final game of the season at Stamford Bridge.

The future of Terry has perplexed many of Antonio Conte's predecessors, but the Italian has managed the imminent departure respectfully and courteously.

Conte thinks Terry should not retire and instead stick by his decision to continue playing regularly elsewhere, which was his motivation for departing Chelsea.

"He (Conte) has been brilliant with me".


"Otherwise he stays here".

"I'm so proud of this team and all the players and management for all the hard work, effort and sacrifices everyone has made this season". Chelsea will be always his home.

The Premier League champions celebrated their title in front of their fans by serving up a game that was littered with goals, gaffes and a farewell from a great.

Captain John Terry has been named in the starting line-up for Chelsea's match against Watford. He said that he did not want to be someone blocking a younger player's progress.

The Spaniard played as a wing-back in the 4-3 win at Stamford Bridge and even scored a goal in the thriller.


The game, which had threatened to boil over a few times, would end in controversy for the Hornets, with Sebastian Prodl sent off for a second yellow, as Chelsea secured yet another win. We have been first since game 12 so obviously we have showed consistency.

Michy Batshuayi has scored three Premier League goals this season.

We have the possibility to win 30 games.

Conte laughed off striker Diego Costa being in the media room at half-time, where the unused substitute ate an orange.

I'm more than likely to use that more as a cover bet for the remainder of my picks however, and I like the widely available 11/4 (3.75) available on Chelsea to win and both to score.


Something tells us Manchester United will have a tough time convincing their Premier League rivals to sell.
