Level With Leicester:

As the season stuttered to a finish, Chelsea entertained Leicester at Stamford Bridge on what is now commonly known as Munich Day with the occasion marking 10 years since that magnificent night in Germany.


The effects of a long season seemed to be taking its toll on some of the players as James Maddison gave the Foxes an early lead with a stunning strike to beat Édouard Mendy.


The Blues then responded before half-time with a good strike from Marcos Alonso, who finished superbly on the volley to tie things up at the Bridge. In the second half, the hosts piled all the pressure on Leicester but as with most of the season, Thomas Tuchel’s side were unable to convert with the game consequently finishing 1-1.

Victory on the Final Day:

The season ended with already relegated Watford making the trip to Stamford Bridge.

This game will surely be the last in Blue for a few of the starting eleven, with already Antonio Rüdiger and Andreas Christensen confirming their departures on free transfers.


The match started well for the Blues with Kai Havertz giving his side the lead on the 11th minute. It was still 1-0 by the 45th minute, with Chelsea becoming the first-ever team in Premier League history to go an entire season without losing at half-time in any game.


The second half looked like it was going the same way as many other games as Watford levelled the game in the dying minutes. However, Ross Barkley head home an injury-time winner to finish the season on a high.

The players will now look forward to a well-deserved rest, before returning to pre-season in July.
