WINNER WINNER WE CAN WIN THE LEAGUE ON FRIDAY DINNER

That was easy.  Perhaps the easiest win all season.  Chelsea started well and never let up; Boro lucky to escape with just the 3-0 defeat.

Three more points needed for the title.

  • Costa with his 20th goal of the season.  Incidentally, he scored his 10th of the season against Boro earlier this year.
  • Alonso's goal probably an own goal.  Guzan beaten three times between the legs, funnily enough.
  • Alonso, Pedro unlucky to both hit the bar.
  • In 1988, Boro beat Chelsea to relegate the Blues to the second division.  Tonight, we returned the favor.
  • JT gets an appearance, much to everyone's delight.  Even got the armband back from Cahill.
  • Bamford gets a few minutes at Stamford Bridge, finally, just for the wrong team.
  • Another clean sheet, another win, another step towards the title.
  • Next up: West Brom away on Friday. Win there confirms Chelsea's second title in three seasons and sixth in club history.
  • Antonioooooooooooooo Antonioooooooooo
  • Carefree.
