Chelsea Party in Terry's Farewell
Premier League champions Chelsea defeated Sunderland 5-1 on Sunday as captain John Terry waved goodbye to Stamford Bridge.

The Blues legend, who has spent 22 years at the club but will leave this summer, played 26 minutes after starting his second match in a row and was replaced to a standing ovation and a guard of honour from his team-mates.

Willian’s equaliser (8) had already cancelled out Javier Manquillo’s third-minute strike by that point, and Eden Hazard (61) and Pedro (77) scored after the break to put the hosts in control.

Chelsea finish the season as champions for the fifth time in 13 years and will now turn their attention towards Saturday’s FA Cup final.

They have also become the first top-flight team in history to win 30 games in a 38-game season, breaking their previous best mark set in 2004/05 and 2005/06.
