Video: Chelsea 4 – 3 Watford [Premier League] Highlights 2016/17

John Terry was on target in one of his last games for Chelsea as they recorded an entertaining 4-3 win over Watford thanks to a late winner from Cesc Fabregas.

 

The experienced defender was handed a rare start as Antonio Conte made nine changes compared to the team that clinched the Premier League title against West Brom on Friday and he enjoyed an eventful first half.
Terry opened the scoring in the 22nd minute with a finish from close range, only to inadvertently set up Etienne Capoue for the equaliser with a poor clearance two minutes later.
Cesar Azpilicueta and Michy Batshuayi then struck either side of half-time to hand Chelsea a two-goal lead, only for Daryl Janmaat to pull one back.
Substitute Stefano Okaka seemed to have a salvaged a draw for Watford with 16 minutes left, but it was Fabregas who had the final say, before Sebastian Prodl received his marching orders in added time.
Chelsea are now on 90 points from 37 games ahead of their final game against Sunderland on Sunday, while Watford remain 16th on 40 points.
Both sides made a cautious start to the game, but the champions eventually went ahead midway through the first half via Terry. Kurt Zouma’s header from a corner somewhat fortuitously fell to his defensive partner and Terry was alert to poke the ball past Gomes from close range.

Video: West Bromwich Albion 0 – 1 Chelsea [Premier League] Highlights 2016/17

Michy Batshuayi made a telling contribution from the bench as Chelsea secured Premier League glory with a 1-0 win at West Brom.

Chelsea regained the Premier League title as Michy Batshuayi came off the bench to earn a 1-0 victory over West Brom at The Hawthorns on Friday.
Following Monday’s comfortable 3-0 win at home to Middlesbrough, Antonio Conte’s side knew just three points were needed to ensure the trophy would return to Stamford Bridge and, in keeping with their efforts throughout much of the season, the Blues delivered when it mattered.
So often in 2016-17 the likes of Eden Hazard, Diego Costa and Pedro have been the men to inspire the Blues, but on this occasion it was Belgium international Batshuayi’s turn to revel in the spotlight.
Hazard and Pedro had been smartly shackled by the Baggies’ resolute backline, so much so that Conte substituted his star playmakers and replaced them with Willian and Batshuayi, the latter of whom stabbed home the decisive goal eight minutes from time.
Chelsea have played some sublime football at times throughout this campaign, although the winner was anything but – Gary Cahill’s shanked shot finding its way to Cesar Azpilicueta, who squared low across the six-yard area for Batshuayi to get the better of Ben Foster and spark scenes of delirium in the away end and on the touchline.
Conte’s celebration was typically frantic and the victory was just reward for the Italian, who has masterminded the Blues’ ascent in his debut campaign, helping to put to bed memories of last season’s dismal defence of the 2014-15 crown.
In the hunt for a club-record Premier League points tally, West Brom still had plenty to play for and came close to delivering an early dampener on Chelsea’s party when Salomon Rondon’s flicked header had to be touched over the crossbar by Thibaut Courtois inside 25 seconds.
Chelsea imposed themselves on proceedings thereafter, Pedro’s effort from 20 yards deflected narrowly wide with Foster helpless.
The hosts were not without threat, however, and twice James McClean played poor passes to bring a disappointing end to promising counter-attacks – both of which came from Chelsea corners.
Cesc Fabregas arrowed a shot agonisingly wide of Foster’s right-hand post just after the half-hour mark, Pedro also firing off target as Chelsea probed for an opener.
That search continued early in the second half as Foster got down brilliantly to tip Victor Moses’ low drive behind within two minutes of the restart.
Tony Pulis introduced Claudio Yacob to shore up the Baggies’ midfield, and Craig Dawson was grateful for his team-mate’s presence on the line to prevent an own goal following quick feet from Hazard.
Despite their dominance of possession, Chelsea still had to be wary of their hosts’ countering capabilities and, left one-on-one with David Luiz, Rondon slipped clear and raced towards goal, only to be denied by a fine block from Azpilicueta.
Substitute Nacer Chadli shot wide at the end of another break as Chelsea looked uncharacteristically vulnerable, but any concerns were put to bed as Azpilicueta made the most of Cahill’s wayward effort to find Batshuayi, who picked the perfect time to score his first Premier League goal since August and get the Blues’ title celebrations under way in earnest.

download video: Real Madrid 3 – 0 Atletico Madrid [Champions League] Highlights 2016/17

A second derby hat-trick this season saw Cristiano Ronaldo give Real Madrid a 3-0 win over Atletico in the Champions League semi-final.

Cristiano Ronaldo once again proved himself to be the man for the big occasion as his hat-trick gave holders Real Madrid a commanding 3-0 advantage in their Champions League semi-final against city rivals Atletico Madrid.

The four-time Ballon d’Or winner has seemingly saved his best for Europe’s premier competition this season, scoring five of Madrid’s six goals in their pulsating quarter-final triumph over Bayern Munich, and he headed the opener after 10 minutes at a raucous Santiago Bernabeu.

Madrid’s fans unveiled a huge banner celebrating the 2014 and 2016 final triumphs over their neighbours before kick-off and Ronaldo ensured the knife-edge tension of those extra-time and penalty shootout wins would be removed from this tie.

The contest fell into a familiarly fractious and cagey rhythm after the interval, but Madrid’s talisman intervened to render the last European match at the Vicente Calderon a formality.

Ronaldo rifled an unstoppable shot into the top corner in the 73rd minute and claimed the matchball four minutes from time, meaning a grim catalogue of misery in this European fixture continued for Diego Simeone’s side.

The hosts should have led in the seventh minute. Right-back Dani Carvajal exchanged passes with Isco and darted into the box, forcing a save from Jan Oblak before Karim Benzema was unable to turn in from close range.

It mattered little as Madrid made short work of Atletico’s famously misery rearguard soon afterwards.

Sergio Ramos’ initial cross was cleared by Diego Godin, but Casemiro clattered the loose ball into the turf and back towards the six-yard box, where Ronaldo stole in front of Stefan Savic to head home.

Atletico were rattled and needed a fine save from Oblak in the 16th minute after Raphael Varane glanced Toni Kroos’ corner low to the goalkeeper’s left.

Oblak’s opposite number Keylor Navas was out sharply to thwart Kevin Gameiro, with the Atletico forward’s attempt to round him lacking conviction.

Madrid continued to make most of the running – Benzema hooking an overhead kick beyond the crossbar in the 29th minute after Ronaldo tormented Atletico’s makeshift right-back Lucas Hernandez to send in the cross.

Carvajal brought down Yannick Carrasco at the other end, giving Antoine Griezmann the opportunity to flight a wonderful free-kick into the Madrid box that a stretching Godin volleyed over.

A highly satisfactory half for Madrid ended with a couple of their players in the wars – Casemiro left with a bloodied lip after defending a 40th-minute corner before Carvajal limped off with an apparent hamstring injury in stoppage time.

The second half resumed at an undulating pace, with Isco and Saul Niguez earning bookings for clumsy fouls on Hernandez and Carvajal’s replacement Nacho respectively, but both team struggled for precision with the final ball as the occasion began to weigh heavily.

Isco was a touch fortunate to escape a second booking when he caught Koke late – an argument Atletico boss Simeone made in animated fashion on the touchline – and Zinedine Zidane responded by sending on Marco Asensio in place of the Spain playmaker.

It was a change that married itself to growing tension inside the Bernabeu until Ronaldo took it upon himself to expel the anxiety.

Benzema did well to hold up a Marcelo cross, but Ronaldo still had plenty to do with a bouncing ball and Filipe Luis in close attendance.

Video: Middlesbrough 2 – 2 Manchester City [Premier League] Highlights 206/17

 

Manchester City snatched a 2-2 draw against Middlesbrough after Gabriel Jesus scored a late equaliser at the Riverside Stadium.

Gabriel Jesus scored a dramatic late equaliser to salvage a 2-2 draw for Manchester City at Middlesbrough and put a further dent in the Teessiders’ slim hopes of avoiding relegation from the Premier League.

Fourth-placed City had the chance to go three points clear of local rivals Manchester United, who drew 1-1 with Swansea City earlier on Sunday, but Pep Guardiola’s side were somewhat fortunate to emerge from a closely contested game with a share of the points.

The visitors unsurprisingly had a stranglehold on possession at a sunny Riverside Stadium, but they came up against a well-organised Middlesbrough team who impressed as much with their fast breaks as with their resolute defending.

And Steve Agnew’s men had a deserved lead when Alvaro Negredo scored against his old club in the 38th-minute, firing home his ninth goal of the season to equal his goal tally as a City player in the 2013-14 season.

Sergio Aguero, who limped off late in the match, scored a controversial penalty to haul City level after Marten de Roon was harshly judged to have fouled Leroy Sane in the penalty area, but Calum Chambers pounced on a loose ball in a goalmouth scramble in the 77th minute to restore Boro’s lead.

But with the Riverside faithful preparing to celebrate a priceless win, Jesus headed Aguero’s cross into the net to earn his side a point towards their push for a top-four finish, while Boro are six points adrift of safety with just three games to play.

Video: Real Madrid 2 – 1 Valencia [La Liga] Highlights 2016/17

Real Madrid put the pressure back on Barcelona in LaLiga with a dramatic 2-1 victory over Valencia on Saturday.

 Marcelo proved the unlikely hero as Real Madrid snatched a dramatic 2-1 win over Valencia at Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday.The full-back fired home with four minutes of normal time remaining after Dani Parejo had cancelled out Cristiano Ronaldo’s 20th LaLiga goal of the season.
The result puts Madrid back to the top of the table, three points above champions Barcelona ahead of their derby match with Espanyol later on Saturday.

Zinedine Zidane’s side were beaten 2-1 in the reverse fixture at Mestalla in February and almost found themselves a goal down inside the first minute, with Santi Mina hitting the post from inside the area.

Madrid began to settle and Ronaldo turned the ball in from Dani Carvajal’s cross midway through the first half – his first goal in the top flight since March 12.

The home side missed chances to double their lead, with Ronaldo seeing a spot-kick saved by Diego Alves for the third time in four attempts, and their profligacy was punished eight minutes from time as Parejo swept in a sublime free-kick.

But Marcelo’s brilliant solo goal salvaged a second win in a row since Madrid’s Clasico defeat and ensured that the title race remains firmly in their hands.

Arsenal kept their Champions League hopes alive as Robert Huth’s own goal handed them a 1-0 victory over Leicester City on Wednesday.

Robert Huth’s late own goal spared Arsenal’s blushes as Arsene Wenger’s side claimed a vital three points in the race for the Premier League’s top four with a 1-0 win over Leicester City.

Nacho Monreal – who netted in Arsenal’s FA Cup semi-final victory over Manchester City last time out – continued his form in front of goal when his 86th-minute strike deflected in wickedly off Leicester’s German defender.

It was a relief for the home crowd following a lacklustre display from Wenger’s men, who, despite desperately needing to make up ground on the teams above them, had been found wanting throughout at Emirates Stadium.

Alexis Sanchez epitomised Arsenal’s performance with some sloppy touches and slack passing, though the former Barcelona winger still went closest for the hosts in a tepid first half – hitting the woodwork with a blistering strike on the stroke of half-time, with Riyad Mahrez having tested Petr Cech at the other end.

The Chile international is certain to come in for criticism after going down clutching his face in the final moments, a throw-in from close range having struck his shoulder.

Never in Wenger’s 20-year tenure have Arsenal, who face title-challenging Tottenham next, missed out on a Champions League qualification spot, but they looked set to be held by Leicester until, with just over four minutes remaining, Huth’s misfortune sealed the points.

The victory moves Arsenal up into sixth place, three points behind Manchester United and four adrift of fourth-placed City, with Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola’s sides facing each other on Thursday.

Paris Saint-Germain thrashed Monaco for the second time in a month, romping to a 5-0 victory in the Coupe de France semi-final.

 Paris Saint-Germain cruised to a 5-0 victory over Monaco in the Coupe de France semi-final after the visitors rested key players at Parc des Princes with an eye on their Ligue 1 and Champions League fixtures.It was the second time in a month that Monaco have suffered a heavy defeat to their title rivals, following a 4-1 loss in the Coupe de la Ligue final, and Leonardo Jardim’s young fringe players could not cope with a PSG side determined to clinch a domestic cup double.

Experienced Monaco goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis was frequently left exposed throughout the game but it was his error that allowed Julian Draxler to open the scoring after 26 minutes and Edinson Cavani celebrated his new PSG deal by making it 2-0 five minutes later.

Defender Safwan Mbae suffered a cruel blow on his debut when he inadvertently turned the ball into his own net in the 50th minute and Blaise Matuidi followed up with a fourth goal just two minutes later, before Marquinhos wrapped up the scoring in the final minute.

PSG will face Angers in the final and Unai Emery’s men, who have now won their last nine consecutive games in all competitions, will be confident of securing an 11th Coupe de France trophy for the club.

A much-changed Real Madrid had too much for Deportivo La Coruna as they ran out 6-2 winners at Riazor to go level with leaders Barcelona.

James Rodriguez scored a goal in each half as Real Madrid responded to Barcelona pressure by going level with their rivals at the top of LaLiga thanks to a commanding 6-2 win over Deportivo La Coruna.

Zinedine Zidane was unmoved from his recent rotation policy and made nine changes to the side beaten in dramatic circumstances by a Lionel Messi-inspired Barca on Sunday.

Taking to the field after Barcelona thumped basement boys Osasuna 7-1, Madrid tore into Depor and Alvaro Morata scored inside the first minute.

James made it two within a quarter of an hour and Lucas Vazquez settled any doubts over the destination of the points on the stroke of half-time after Florin Andone briefly gave Deportivo hope.

Isco was their main tormentor throughout and got in on the act after James tapped in his second

Joselu gained a measure of consolation for Depor – who are still not completely safe from relegation trouble – but fellow substitute Casemiro followed up his goal against Barca to complete the rout.

The Clasico rivals are locked together on 78 points at the summit, although Madrid retain a game in hand and, with the news of Barcelona’s resounding victory probably still ringing in their ears, they hit the front after 54 seconds at Riazor.

Antonio Conte kept faith in the players that destroyed Manchester United 4-0 on Monday, and they enjoyed similar control to rack up another win

Chelsea moved back to within a point of Premier League leaders Manchester City courtesy of a comfortable 2-0 win against Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium on Sunday.

Eden Hazard and Diego Costa scored the goals to give the visitors a fourth top-flight victory in a row and put Wednesday’s EFL Cup exit at the hands of rivals West Ham behind them.

Antonio Conte named the same starting line-up that dispatched Manchester United 4-0 last week and they again enjoyed a strong start as Hazard shot between the legs of Fraser Forster in just the sixth minute.

Claude Puel’s Saints, who had not lost any of their previous five league matches, enjoyed plenty of possession without mustering a serious threat to Chelsea’s disciplined defence.

Costa struck a brilliant second 10 minutes after half-time to double Chelsea’s lead and the visitors never looked like surrendering their advantage on a ground where they have lost just once in nine league visits.

The win puts Chelsea above Tottenham and into fourth place on 22 points, one behind City, Arsenal and Liverpool, as Southampton missed out on the chance to climb into seventh.

Southampton were undone early on as Hazard punished mistakes from Steven Davis and goalkeeper Forster.

The Belgium international ran beyond the Northern Ireland midfielder into the area and, after cutting back onto his left foot at the near post following Victor Moses’ pass, he nutmegged Forster for his fifth league goal of the season – one more than he managed in 31 games last term.

The Premier League was back with a bang – and an upset – as champions Leicester were downed by two goals scored by three players from Hull, a club supposedly in crisis but not showing it during these 90 minutes.

The hosts’ opener was initially credited to Abel Hernandez and may indeed rest with him but actually the ball was simultaneously attacked during dual backward flips by Hernandez and team-mate Adama Diomande.

There have been acrobatic moves into the synchronised diving in Rio in the last week that have been less spectacular and it was a fine way for a largely dull first half to be brought to life.
