Fabregas foils Watford in Chelsea title party

― Reuters picLONDON, May 16 ― John Terry has had many highs and a few lows in his two decades at Chelsea, so it was fitting that he was both hero and villain in what was possibly his last full appearance for the club he joined as a 14-year-old schoolboy.

Now with Watford FC coming to Stamford Bridge, it's time for the newly crowned champions to celebrate with their home fans - a celebration that will hopefully come in the form of an emphatic win over the Hornets.

Terry has now scored for Chelsea in 17 successive Premier League seasons.

After Willian, freed by Hazard, had seen a shot finger-tipped wide by Watford goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes early in the second half, the "one for you, one for me" pattern of scoring was repeated. As a player that's all you want.

"We will not be resting; we must work in the training sessions to prepare the next two games against Watford and Sunderland in the right way". It is the right finale for John, ' Conte explained last night.

"I know I said I wanted to play regular football, but I have not ruled out Sunday being my last game and retiring", he said.

- Chelsea have equalled the record from most wins in a single Premier League season (29, also achieved by the Blues in 04/05 and 05/06).

"The beauty of football", Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas said, "a player who didn't play a lot scores the winning goal for the championship".

Warriors' Brown blending his style into Kerr's foundation
The Warriors came from 22 down in the second quarter to win the finale, 110-98 on March 29 in San Antonio. For many on the team, it was the first time they had seen Kerr in almost two weeks.

Goals from Cesar Azpilicueta and Michy Batshuayi restored and then extended Chelsea's lead, only for Watford to reply through Daryl Janmaat and substitute Stefano Okaka.

"Of course we think about this, but we need to think day by day, rest well, keep ourselves very good in these next two games to have a top performance against Arsenal".

Batshuayi could be rewarded for scoring the title-clinching victor at West Brom on Friday with his first Premier League start, while N'Golo Kante could return to the first XI.

For the bookmakers themselves however, determining the odds on favourite for the FA Cup Final hasn't been an easy task.

"First and foremost it was great for me to get in the starting line-up", he added.

"It's not as if I like to play against Arsenal because they are a club which is in my heart and they will always be". It's a pity for me but I must respect his decision. "But, for sure, I have to pick the players who, for me, are in better form".

Watford's Sebastian Prodl was sent off in injury time after a reckless challenge on Pedro brought a second yellow card from referee Lee Mason.
