As one team prepares to drown themselves in champagne and celebrations, another drowns in their sorrows. The Premier League says goodbye to another victim of relegation as Middlesbrough are now demoted after last night’s 3-0 defeat against who we presume to be this year’s champions, Chelsea.
Stamford Bridge saw their side demolish Middlesbrough, with some fantastic team football, clinical finishing and some pretty poor goalkeeping. All three goals scored last night found their way through the legs of Middlesbrough keeper, Brad Guzan.
Diego Costa was first to nutmeg Guzan with his 20th goal of the season, followed by Alonso and Matic, who scored his first goal in front of a roaring Stamford Bridge. Chelsea’s football was effective and direct, with Fabregas playing a key factor in their attacks throughout the game.
It seems Chelsea are on the brink of glory as it’s hard to see the league title coming from anywhere other than their game against West Brom on Friday.
Just one more win will see Antonio Conte claim the Premier League title in his first season in England. If for some miraculous reason they don’t gain the victorious three points at The Hawthorns, they face relegated Sunderland at home the week after.
