CHAMPIONS CHELSEA: BLUES LIFT FIFTH TROPHY IN FIVE YEARS AS COURTOIS, KANE PICK AWARDS

 

Mitch Batshuayi’s end of the season showing continued as the Belgian scored two late goals to help Chelsea beat relegated Sunderland 5-1 at Stamford Bridge.

 

Javier Manquillo scored early in the first half to put the Cats in front just 3 minutes after the game started but Willian soon responded with a low shot in the 18 to level the score line after 5 minutes.

A moment of emotion set in when Captain John Terry was replaced in the 27th minute by Gary Cahill.

It was the Captain’s last game for the blues after 19 years of senior career service with the London club

 

The game ended 1-1 at half time but Eden Hazard, Pedro Rodriguez both scored in the second half to strengthen the lead before Batshuayi, who replaced Costa netted two at the last minutes to make the lead 5-1.

 

Chelsea have now made a record of winning the highest number of games in a league season, having won 30 games to beat their own 29 wins in the 2014/2015 season.

 

After Ngolo Kante had earlier picked up the PFA and FWA Player of the year awards, Thibault Courtois got the golden glove award for the best goalkeeper while Harry Kane who netted his 5th hatrick of the season against relegated Hull won the Golden boot award.
