Vs Tottenham Hotspur (H), May 2

It’s been a long, hard season for fallen champions Chelsea, but Monday night’s clash at the Bridge might at least allow them to steal Spurs’ title hopes away once and for all. Their London rivals had looked rampant until drawing 1-1 with West Brom, and now the Blues – who will play a crucial role in the run-in at the top of the table – can crown Leicester ahead of their dear neighbours.

Vs Sunderland (A), May 7

While a hatred of Spurs may inspire a performance on Monday, the following week could well see Chelsea return to their April experimentation. Barring a turgid defeat to Leicester, Sunderland have been impressive on home turf of late, beating Man United and drawing with Arsenal, so they should have the fight to see off the Blues too.

Vs Liverpool (A), May 11

With Jurgen Klopp bringing back the clichéd famous Anfield nights, Man City and Borussia Dortmund have already felt the force of a roaring Reds crowd. With Chelsea, the enemies of this millennium, visiting, Liverpool’s fans and players will be up for it, and the score-line should reflect that.

Shoot Says: 2-0 loss

Vs Leicester City (H), May 15

How relieved Chelsea must be that Spurs’ slip-up has surely gifted Leicester the title ahead of the final day, allowing last season’s champions to avoid the shame of handing over the trophy in front of their own fans. Claudio Ranieri will no doubt be delighted to return to Stamford Bridge a Premier League winner, but the Blues should put up a fight to cap the campaign in entertaining fashion.

Shoot Says: 2-2 draw

Overall Points: 49
Final Position: 10th
