And so we come, to the end of the road.  But still, I can't let this season go.  Actually, that's a lie.  I'm ready to let go.  Ready for the summer.  Ready to get this trophy presentation and ticker-tape parade out of the way and start the main event: Silly Season!  There will be silliness.  Lots of silliness.

In lieu of more words, let's watch a short video:

So, one more run out.  It's Championship Sunday, and some do have something to play for still.  We don't and neither do Sunderland.  Chelsea will be back at Stamford Bridge for the final pre-season friendly against Fiorentina in August.  Until then, let's celebrate the good times.  Come on!

Date / Time: Sunday, May 24, 2015, 15:00 BST; 10am EDT; 7:30pm IST

Venue: Stamford Bridge, SW6

Referee: Lee Mason — Mason takes a break from his day job as a used car salesman to referee his third Chelsea match of the season.  We won both of the previous two by a 2-0 scoreline (v. Leicester City, v. WBA).

Forecast: It might rain (lightly) on our trophy presentation.

Chelsea team news: The youth parade is set to continue with Andreas Christensen and Jeremie Boga, though perhaps not in a starting capacity.  Ruben Loftus-Cheek should get another start though.

Oscar, Ramires, Kurt Zouma, and probably Eden Hazard will all miss the season finale with various injuries while Cesc Fabregas will serve his single match suspension for hitting Chris Brunt with a pin-point cross last weekend.  Petr Cech should start if he's deemed fit, as should John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic as they finish their quest to start every match of the season (and JT becomes just the second player in Premier League history to play every single minute of every single match).

Sunderland team news: Sunderland have a few injuries as well (including former Chelsea prospect Liam Bridcutt).  And maybe some young players who might want to play?  This is very important information.

Previously: One of the more disappointing results of the season was the 0-0 in the reverse fixture in late November.  And of course the last time Sunderland came to the Bridge, Mourinho lost his unbeaten home record.  We are actually winless in our last three matches against the Black Cats.  So let's get a win and finish the season right.
