John Terry Scores As Premier League Champions Chelsea Beat Watford
Chelsea captain, John Terry scores as The Blues beat Watford in his final start for Chelsea this season.
The Blues capped their Premier League title win with a thrilling 4-3 victory over Watford on Monday night amid a party atmosphere at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea made nine changes from the team that clinched the title at West Brom on Friday.
John Terry who is set to leave Chelsea at the end of the season scored the opener from a corner in the 22nd minute.
After the goal celebrations, Terry appeared to have tears in his eyes.
However, less than 90 seconds later, a miscued header from Terry gifted Etienne Capoue the equalizer for Watford.
Azpilicueta restored Chelsea’s lead when he fired in after a corner came out to him on the edge of the box.
Batshuayi made it 3-1 when he tapped in from Nathan Ake’s pass shortly after half-time.

It wasn’t long after that before Janmaat quickly replied with a fine individual goal, driving down the left side and then finishing into the far corner.
Coming off the bench, Cesc Fabregas snatched the winner for Chelsea two minutes from stoppage time.
Sebastian Prodl was sent off in a fiery finish before fireworks and streamers filled the air.
The champions will now complete the campaign at Stamford Bridge against Sunderland on Sunday when they will lift the Premier League trophy.
A win on Sunday would see them finish with 93 points, the second-highest tally behind Jose Mourinho’s 2004/05 Chelsea side.
They would become the first side to win 30 games in a Premier League season.
Meanwhile, Watford could end just a point above the relegation zone if they lose to Manchester City on the final match day.
Having secured the Premier League title on Friday, and perhaps with an eye on the FA Cup final on May 27, Antonio Conte made nine changes to his starting line-up from the win over West Brom.
