Chelsea celebrated lifting their fifth Premier League title with an emphatic 5-1 victory over relegated side Sunderland on Sunday.

Having already won the league nine days ago against West Bromwich Albion, The Blues were able to focus on having a title party at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea were also saying goodbye to long-serving defender John Terry, who was playing his 717th game for the club and making his final appearance at the Bridge.

Despite the occasion, the visitors took the lead inside three minutes with a goal from defender Javier Manquillo.

However their lead only lasted five minutes, with Willian marking his 180th appearance for the hosts with a goal from close-range.

Despite starting the match, departing captain Terry was substituted midway through the first-half and received a superb reception from the supporters and players from both clubs.

The Black Cats’ valiant defending was something that they were only able to maintain for the first-half of the match.

Eden Hazard scored his 16th league goal of the season to put the hosts ahead at the beginning of the second-half.

Substitutes Pedro and Michy Batshuayi completed the rout. The Spanish winger took advantage of a defensive mix-up to make it 3-1, before Belgian striker Batshuayi netted a quick-fire brace shortly before the end.
