Why Next Week Needs to be 3 Points

On the 19th of May, a year after taking the European title, Chelsea will be wanting to end the season with a bang, getting the very crucial 3 points for more than just our dignity. The mighty Blues go up against Everton in the last game of the season and winning maximum points will be pivotal for the future.

Champions League

Although Lampard singlehandedly secured us a place in the Champions League whilst passing Bobby Tamblings goal-scoring record, it is still possible to finish the season fourth. Defeating the Toffees will guarantee Chelsea the third position in the table. With the very dense schedule Chelsea had this season (69 total games) it will be best if we have more time in between games for rest, and earning the third spot will prevent a playoff for a Champions League group stage position.

David Moyes

Not only are Chelsea playing Everton, but they are playing against Manchester United's future manager. Giving him possibly his first defeat after being appointed United's manager (Everton will be likely to beat West Ham) will be a warm welcoming to life against a major rival. Getting in Moyes' head early will be useful for the future. A defeat (and hopefully a brutal one) will give Chelsea the upper-hand for the future and surely put some doubt in Moyes' head that maybe he is far from ready to manage such a big club.

All in all, it has been a good season for Chelsea. Given our manager situation, meshing of new faces, and a shaky mid-season, Chelsea have managed to earn a Champions League position, be in a European final, and bring their team together as a whole. Next season has a lot of potential to be one of Chelsea's best yet.
