The Blues have secured Champions League football for next season following the 3-0 win over Watford at Stamford Bridge and Arsenal’s 1-1 draw against Brighton at the Emirates Stadium.

The Blues are third on the table with 71 points, four points ahead of Arsenal on 67 points.

Chelsea’s last game of the season is at Leicester City and a win will ensure we finish the season in third place following what has been a season of ups and downs for the Blues.

Chelsea started the game against Watford poorly but improved in the second half.

Maurizio Sarri blamed Chelsea’s poor first against Watford on fatigue.

“I think in the first half we were tired, mentally. We were in trouble,” Sarri said.

“Then they lowered their intensity. We were lucky to score after two minutes – we improved mentally after first goal. We played very well for 35 minutes then. It’s not easy to play after 60 hours. After Europa League away games we’ve only won one match.

“When you are not brilliant physically you have to move the ball, the ball isn’t tired, the man is tried. In the second half we did it better as something changed in our minds.”
