Chelsea sealed fourth place in the Premier League to wrap up qualification for next season’s Champions League with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Wolves at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea needed a point against Wolves in order to clinch a top-four place – but claimed all three in style with goals from Mason Mount and Olivier Giroud.

Giroud’s goal against Wolves just before halftime meant he broke a Jamie Vardy record in the Premier League.

Giroud’s goal against Wolves means at the age of 33, Giroud has become the oldest player to score in five consecutive Premier League starts, taking over from Jamie Vardy (32).
