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
