How about that? Just brilliant! Oh that is wonderful! An absolute

:00:20.:00:40.

belter! What a chance. What a goal! Oh, look at that!

:00:41.:00:52.

The new manager off to a winning start. Hazard here. Oh, great goal.

:00:53.:01:00.

What a performance from Antonio Conte's boys in blue. That surely

:01:01.:01:07.

has secured the 13th consecutive win. Champions in the making. They

:01:08.:01:14.

can reach out and almost touch that trophy. Brilliant. Cahill! Fantastic

:01:15.:01:24.

goal by Pedro. Blue is the colour of the Premier League winners again.

:01:25.:01:31.

Evening, after Chelsea clinched the title on Friday, tonight was all

:01:32.:01:34.

about the home coming with Watford the visitors. Danny Murphy and Mark

:01:35.:01:44.

Schwarzer will reflect on that. Your commentator at Stamford Bridge was

:01:45.:01:54.

Guy Mowbray. It is Watford tonight, but they stand for the rest of the

:01:55.:01:58.

Premier League as a mark of respect. The team that has been on top since

:01:59.:02:04.

December 11th, the club that is champions of England for the sixth

:02:05.:02:08.

time and there might be more to come this season, with the FA Cup final

:02:09.:02:14.

only 12 days away and one more league game, it is not surprising

:02:15.:02:19.

Antonio Conte has rung the changes. Nine in fact.

:02:20.:02:28.

John Terry is in and Kante is back. For Watford, three changes from the

:02:29.:02:43.

team beaten at Everton on Friday A fourth successive defeat without

:02:44.:02:53.

scoring for The Hornets. Just three more games to go in John Terry's

:02:54.:02:57.

Chelsea career. Tonight is his first start in the Premier League since

:02:58.:03:03.

September. It is his 716th Chelsea appearance and he is the first

:03:04.:03:08.

non-Manchester United player to win five Premier League titles.

:03:09.:03:27.

Chelsea keep on pressing. It is Batshuayi. Got his shot away. His

:03:28.:03:36.

shot was blocked. It was all a bit of a scramble. Holebas lost it to

:03:37.:03:45.

Ake. It was a smart turn by Batshuayi.

:03:46.:03:49.

John Terry attacked it and John Terry's in and it's bounced in. The

:03:50.:03:59.

captain's got his goal! It is proving to be a fairy tale final

:04:00.:04:05.

season at the Bridge for Chelsea's captain, leader and legend. John

:04:06.:04:12.

Terry scores a 67th goal for Chelsea. He said in his programme

:04:13.:04:17.

notes tonight, if I could have written my story as a 14-year-old

:04:18.:04:22.

when I signed on the pitch, this would have been it. What a time

:04:23.:04:28.

chapter. Another goal at Stamford Bridge for John Terry, before he

:04:29.:04:32.

goes to a new, strange home, wherever it may be. The smile says

:04:33.:04:34.

it all. Chelsea 1, Watford 0. His first goal since scoring for

:04:35.:04:54.

both sides in a 3-3 game against Everton last year. John Terry has

:04:55.:05:02.

gifted a goal to Watford. Would you believe it? That wasn't in the

:05:03.:05:07.

script. The smile's gone now. Didn't that escalate quickly? I was just

:05:08.:05:13.

talking Ake scoring -- ago scoring for both sides. He got in a mix up

:05:14.:05:20.

with Chalobah. Not enough on the header. Seemed unsure with Chalobah

:05:21.:05:27.

in his way and Capoue has been able to get Watford level. Watford's

:05:28.:05:31.

first away goal since the end of January. Chelsea 1, Watford 1. 35

:05:32.:05:38.

seconds from their kick off, Watford are level again.

:05:39.:05:48.

Willian has fired a long range pass to Hazard and Hazard has just missed

:05:49.:05:55.

the target, having done just about everything else perfectly. He thinks

:05:56.:05:58.

he should have a corner. He should have a word with Willian first and

:05:59.:06:03.

say, thank you very much for another tremendous pass.

:06:04.:06:16.

Kenedy trying to hold off Amrabat and it was palmed behind by Gomes.

:06:17.:06:26.

Amrabat with what he tried to do. But he couldn't fully stop Kenedy.

:06:27.:06:32.

It is Cesar Azpilicueta. It is 2-1 Chelsea. Cesar Azpilicueta scores

:06:33.:06:44.

his first Premier League goal of the season. Having started every single

:06:45.:06:51.

Premier League game this season. And he has got that through the crowd

:06:52.:06:56.

and into the corner of the net like an arrow. That is a terrific strike.

:06:57.:07:02.

Taking full advantage of Watford failing to clear the ball and the

:07:03.:07:06.

manager was kicking it in too! Chelsea in front and in charge

:07:07.:07:08.

again. Willian goes for goal. But can't

:07:09.:07:33.

find it. Concentrating on pushing the ball past Gomes, who did get a

:07:34.:07:37.

glove to it. Deflected. And it's 3-1 Chelsea and

:07:38.:07:52.

Batshuayi has another goal. The man who won the title with his close

:07:53.:07:58.

range effort at The Hawthorns on Friday night. Three nights on, he

:07:59.:08:02.

scores from close in again. And it might be the Gil that take -- goal

:08:03.:08:09.

that takes away Watford hope. Ake got on to it as Kenedy's shot was

:08:10.:08:17.

blocked. It spiralled Ake's way and he kept his cool to give Batshuayi a

:08:18.:08:24.

tap in. The champions are enjoying their home-coming parade.

:08:25.:08:41.

Janmatt is in. Oh, that is a terrific goal! Absolutely superb

:08:42.:08:53.

solo goal from the Dutchman, Daryl Janmatt. There is one man who

:08:54.:08:56.

doesn't think it is too clever. But it is a pearler, because he started

:08:57.:09:01.

it. A mistake led to him getting on to the ball. That is the best bit of

:09:02.:09:07.

the lot, the shoulder dip to get inside Ake. And Janmatt normally a

:09:08.:09:14.

full-back, but he took that like a centre forward. Perhaps Chelsea

:09:15.:09:19.

haven't won a Premier League game for the 29th time this season yet.

:09:20.:09:27.

Willian's pulled back. Hazard. It was never the right time.

:09:28.:09:39.

We are getting champions' flicks and tricks now!

:09:40.:09:49.

Chelsea getting the oles. What a move this is. Batshuayi turns and

:09:50.:09:59.

Gomes saves. That would have been a goal to savour. They were all taking

:10:00.:10:03.

their turn on the ball to strut their stuff.

:10:04.:10:19.

Holebas dispossessed. Cesar Azpilicueta went for No 2. Gomes is

:10:20.:10:29.

not happy. Holebas trying to be too clever.

:10:30.:10:47.

It comes to Okaka and he has levelled for Watford. 3-3 at

:10:48.:10:57.

Stamford Bridge. Watford fans celebrating as if their team is

:10:58.:11:02.

going to get the result of the season. After challenging the first

:11:03.:11:09.

time, Okaka delighted to find the ball come down to his right foot.

:11:10.:11:14.

One swing of that later and it is Chelsea 3, Watford 3. The player

:11:15.:11:20.

given his Italy debut by Antonio Conte with the third Watford goal.

:11:21.:11:27.

Prodl's come slamming into the tackle and Batshuayi with an angry

:11:28.:11:34.

reaction that you can perhaps understand. He didn't take the ball

:11:35.:11:40.

at all. He is just late. The to rosti of the -- ferocity of the

:11:41.:11:45.

challenge earned him a card. John Terry made the run, but he was never

:11:46.:11:50.

getting to that. Gomes had to get that. Looked as though the free kick

:11:51.:11:57.

had been hopelessly overit, but it was going in you know.

:11:58.:12:09.

Fabregas! Chelsea win another one! Fabregas with the crowning moment of

:12:10.:12:21.

a memorable Stamford Bridge night and Antonio Conte gets it right

:12:22.:12:26.

again. A winning goal from the substitute again. And Kante plays

:12:27.:12:34.

his part in winning the ball, finding Willian. Willian played the

:12:35.:12:38.

right pass at the right time and what about that for a cool, cool

:12:39.:12:44.

finish? Fabregas finds the corner and Chelsea have found a way to win

:12:45.:12:49.

a 29th Premier League game this season.

:12:50.:12:59.

Pedro caught by Prodl. I don't think Prodl will see the end of the game.

:13:00.:13:05.

A yellow card not so long ago and there is almost certain to be

:13:06.:13:12.

another one for that. There it is. Prodl has to take the long walk.

:13:13.:13:18.

Watford and Prodl for one gave so much to this game for so long. But

:13:19.:13:26.

two mistimed lunging tackles and his night is done.

:13:27.:13:32.

Cesar Azpilicueta tries everything to get there. It is over for the

:13:33.:13:39.

night. Another Chelsea victory. This one's been just a little bit

:13:40.:13:44.

different. John Terry with the first goal and then with a mistake that

:13:45.:13:51.

saw Watford level first time round. And then we had five more goals to

:13:52.:13:58.

enjoy. A night that has lit up west London in terms of entertainment. A

:13:59.:14:04.

night worthy of champions. And now we have fireworks lighting up the

:14:05.:14:11.

night sky. Chelsea, champions, 2017. And tonight on this party night at

:14:12.:14:17.

The Bridge, Chelsea 4, Watford 3. A quite brilliant evening. You needed

:14:18.:14:25.

to win to continue the celebrations, these 30 wins, no team has done it

:14:26.:14:31.

in a 38 game season. Do you keep records, do you like breaking

:14:32.:14:35.

records like that? Yes, the most important thing is to win the

:14:36.:14:42.

league. Then if you have the possibility to... Improve on this

:14:43.:14:51.

type of record, yeah, we must try. Now, we are in a position we can

:14:52.:14:55.

reach this target and the players and I want to reach this target.

:14:56.:15:06.

Chelsea the champions, you played them tonight, are they the

:15:07.:15:12.

champions? TRANSLATION: Antonio Conte is an

:15:13.:15:17.

intelligent manager. He had to change the model from last year. He

:15:18.:15:21.

did it. He's a great manager. Also he has incredible players.

:15:22.:15:26.

Congratulations to him and the whole team. They deserve it. Your first

:15:27.:15:30.

Premier League goal of the season, have you been saving that one? Of

:15:31.:15:38.

course. It was a good moment to score my first Premier League goal

:15:39.:15:42.

of the season. After being champions, obviously, it was a

:15:43.:15:45.

special moment for me. Talk us through that mad minute. Crazy. I

:15:46.:15:51.

got on the scoresheet. Couple of minutes later, made the mistake and

:15:52.:15:55.

let it in. Mixed emotions. Delighted to get on the scoresheet myself, but

:15:56.:16:01.

any young kid watching, getting it out is a simple rule, and I should

:16:02.:16:04.

have cleared it. What about the goal, we saw the emotion on your

:16:05.:16:10.

face and what it meant? Delighted to start tonight. And delighted to get

:16:11.:16:13.

on the scoresheet and win this evening. It's important we keep our

:16:14.:16:17.

momentum going as a group into the FA Cup. We want to come back here

:16:18.:16:21.

and win our last league game. No matter who plays, the hunger is in

:16:22.:16:24.

the group and it is important to keep that. You said this is how you

:16:25.:16:28.

would have scripted it when you were 14 years old. Is there more to come?

:16:29.:16:36.

Certainly from me, yes. I said if I could have written my story all my

:16:37.:16:41.

life would have panned out this is how it would have been. Going out,

:16:42.:16:45.

being crowned champions, to leave the football club in number one

:16:46.:16:49.

great hands. The players we have here, as well. It will be a sad and

:16:50.:16:54.

emotional day for me next year. I've been here 22 years. Long time. I'm

:16:55.:16:59.

delighted with the experience and opportunity I have had at this

:17:00.:17:03.

football club. You will be looking at the club outside in next season.

:17:04.:17:09.

We haven't had a lot of European success for English teams recently,

:17:10.:17:12.

do you think they could do it? It will be good to be back in the

:17:13.:17:16.

Champions League. We will need to do that. It is more difficult to retain

:17:17.:17:21.

it. It is tough. Lots of players with a lot of experience in there.

:17:22.:17:25.

We have seen how difficult it is to keep it, so that is something to

:17:26.:17:32.

work on next season. It Chelsea beat Sunderland on Sunday they will end

:17:33.:17:36.

up 93 points, the second-highest total in Premier League history,

:17:37.:17:39.

that record already held by Chelsea themselves. That was 12 years ago

:17:40.:17:44.

when Jose Mourinho was manager. After the final whistle there were

:17:45.:17:53.

plenty of celebration that Stamford Bridge. There were fireworks. The

:17:54.:17:58.

players and the manager celebrating with the fans. And they will do it

:17:59.:18:02.

all again at the weekend. We were talking before this match, we had

:18:03.:18:07.

Gary Cahill talk about how much credit Chelsea have this season and

:18:08.:18:10.

whether they were maybe underappreciated. More people

:18:11.:18:14.

talking about Spurs and run may have been on. When you look at those

:18:15.:18:18.

records, 93 points, 33 Premier League wins if they beat Sunderland,

:18:19.:18:21.

do you think they are underappreciated? Not really. As

:18:22.:18:27.

players they probably feel like most people were behind Tottenham to try

:18:28.:18:31.

and snatch the win of the title. They missed out last season in such

:18:32.:18:37.

dramatic circumstances. I think Chelsea have been outstanding

:18:38.:18:39.

throughout the whole course of this season. Everybody can see that. With

:18:40.:18:44.

those records continuously forming, I'm sure they will win next weekend

:18:45.:18:49.

against Sunderland. No way you can doubt they are rightful champions.

:18:50.:18:54.

The stats are remarkable, aren't they? Incredible. Even more

:18:55.:18:58.

incredible when you think about their start. They looked shaky. But

:18:59.:19:05.

one change, that continual work on the training pitch to get that

:19:06.:19:07.

system right. The emergence of some of those players in that system. I'm

:19:08.:19:14.

thinking of Moses, David Luiz being mistake free, I cannot think of him

:19:15.:19:18.

making stupid errors. Alonzo coming in, doing so well, I was questioning

:19:19.:19:25.

him, but he has fitted in. The manager deserves credit. What he has

:19:26.:19:28.

done with a group of quality players, he has got them to a work

:19:29.:19:35.

ethic I haven't seen in a while. John Terry had a minute of mixed

:19:36.:19:39.

emotions, first the goal and then the mistake which led to the Watford

:19:40.:19:43.

goal. Look at the picture from a Chelsea perspective. He's not played

:19:44.:19:46.

much this season. You've been at that club, in the Chelsea dressing

:19:47.:19:50.

room, what will they miss when he goes off the field? His leadership

:19:51.:19:56.

qualities. He hasn't played a lot of football this season. On match day

:19:57.:20:00.

he is very much a leader around the club. When I first walked in the

:20:01.:20:03.

dork who is the first person to come up to you and welcome you, anything

:20:04.:20:07.

you need, anything you want, let me know and I will try to facilitate. I

:20:08.:20:12.

will look after you as best I can. The one person I think is the

:20:13.:20:17.

natural replacement is Gary Cahill. He has done an exceptional job in

:20:18.:20:21.

his absence. He has learned from the best. He will be the one who will

:20:22.:20:26.

take Chelsea forward. He said there is still life in him. In other

:20:27.:20:30.

interviews he has said he hasn't ruled out retiring. How can I put

:20:31.:20:36.

this diplomatically... When you went towards the end of your career, and

:20:37.:20:40.

maybe went to a lesser club than some of the ones you had been at,

:20:41.:20:45.

what did you look for as you were picking that club? First and

:20:46.:20:50.

foremost you are looking at a place where you can play. When you get to

:20:51.:20:53.

the end you appreciate how important it is to be out on the pitch. When I

:20:54.:20:57.

was talking to John recently at a friends house about the fact he was

:20:58.:21:00.

so desperate to play, and the fact he feels good, he has a couple of

:21:01.:21:06.

seasons left, he said. All I said to him was you might be a bit shocked

:21:07.:21:10.

and surprised that sometimes the players around you are not, and

:21:11.:21:15.

these are some of the best players in Europe over the last ten years,

:21:16.:21:20.

and not just on the pitch. They're off pitch things, preparation,

:21:21.:21:24.

travelling, food Reid, training kit you wear, you train on. There will

:21:25.:21:30.

be a differential. He would be used to that. From an elite club. Yes.

:21:31.:21:37.

Going from a 5-star hotel and going to a two star. It is the way

:21:38.:21:42.

different clubs that their money into things we don't see as people

:21:43.:21:50.

outside. It could be something like an away game on a Friday. Chelsea

:21:51.:21:55.

will do it seamlessly. I was at clubs where you don't do so well,

:21:56.:22:00.

and then the food isn't great... And you were the first to complain.

:22:01.:22:02.

CHUCKLES That really doesn't surprise me. I

:22:03.:22:09.

am a changed man. You must have really crumbled back then.

:22:10.:22:11.

CHUCKLES The bigger picture for Chelsea.

:22:12.:22:15.

Rumours around Antonio Conte which he has tried to dispel. Rumours

:22:16.:22:20.

around Hazard and Diego Costa. Who would be the biggest loss out of

:22:21.:22:28.

those three to go? For me Hazard. He is the game changer. In all of the

:22:29.:22:33.

big games I've watched he's been the difference between a draw and a win.

:22:34.:22:40.

Very hard to handle individually. Fitness levels have been great this

:22:41.:22:44.

season. His end product has been good, as well. I don't expect to see

:22:45.:22:55.

him in a Chelsea shirt. You don't! Everything he is saying, it seems

:22:56.:22:58.

inevitable there is something new in the offing. Barcelona want him. When

:22:59.:23:05.

they come knocking you cannot stop these players. We'll have to see.

:23:06.:23:09.

It'll be a difficult summer without them because they are the two top

:23:10.:23:13.

players. Would you say Antonio Conte? I would. As good as Hazard

:23:14.:23:21.

is, but for me it is Antonio Conte. He's been the major difference this

:23:22.:23:27.

season from last. He has united this team. He has got them fit. They are

:23:28.:23:32.

tactically more switched on. Hazard, you know, as much as he will be a

:23:33.:23:36.

big loss, another player can replace him. It'll be tough but they will

:23:37.:23:42.

find someone. Diego Costa is another one, he scored 21 goals again this

:23:43.:23:45.

season, he did that Schumacher years ago when they won the season. He

:23:46.:23:50.

will be a tough one to replace if he leaves. The biggest job for them

:23:51.:23:53.

would be to replace Antonio Conte if he left. He will have a great... He

:23:54.:24:00.

is thinking of a big treasure chest for the summer, at the squad.

:24:01.:24:04.

Talking about replacements. But he will not be short of options. They

:24:05.:24:08.

are a fantastic club, they are moving forward, in the heart of

:24:09.:24:11.

London, where people want to come to. Limited Budget, I imagine Roman

:24:12.:24:16.

Abramovich will give him what he needs, so where would he want to go?

:24:17.:24:24.

You understand the structure. If Roman Abramovich gives him the

:24:25.:24:27.

money, and all indications they are, will it be him who brings in the

:24:28.:24:33.

players? Will it be a scout system? Going back to the last time they won

:24:34.:24:37.

the title, the feeling was that maybe Jose Mourinho didn't get the

:24:38.:24:41.

players he wanted for maybe a variety of reasons. They need a

:24:42.:24:44.

better summer than they had a couple of years ago. They do. The most

:24:45.:24:49.

important thing is the manager and the scouting developments are on the

:24:50.:24:52.

same page. They have to make sure that whoever they bring in they are

:24:53.:24:58.

both in agreement with. They watch a player a minimum of ten times,

:24:59.:25:02.

discounts, and different ones watch them, as well. They could not have

:25:03.:25:11.

watched you ten times. -- ten times, the scouts, and different ones. I

:25:12.:25:14.

don't think so. CHUCKLES

:25:15.:25:20.

Antonio Conte, he will think you might want to bring in his own

:25:21.:25:24.

people. But that is up to the club. To the another manager to make that

:25:25.:25:31.

decision, or do they rely on them scouting network? Or combination?

:25:32.:25:35.

For me they need to do a combination. And then have the

:25:36.:25:39.

manager's final decision. You don't want a big sum up evil when you are

:25:40.:25:44.

champions. You want enough players coming in to challenge the existing

:25:45.:25:48.

players. Variety is key. Some obvious things will happen. John

:25:49.:25:54.

Terry probably going for centre half. There is always a willingness

:25:55.:26:00.

to bring in players if you have just won the championship. They have

:26:01.:26:03.

fantastic young players. We'll be relied on a couple of those to play

:26:04.:26:08.

enough games? -- will he rely on a couple of those to play enough

:26:09.:26:13.

games? As history suggests, Chelsea don't tend to trust them. I reckon

:26:14.:26:19.

they already have targets. I reckon they will have been mining players

:26:20.:26:22.

up already. Nine months ago, they didn't know they would win the

:26:23.:26:26.

league. They were in a great position, now they have won it, so

:26:27.:26:30.

now they can push with a lot of those potential targets. The kids

:26:31.:26:35.

are there, as well. They are, and the need to find a balance. When

:26:36.:26:40.

Antonio Conte arrived he said you need to start introducing young

:26:41.:26:43.

players, give them an opportunity, because they are talented players at

:26:44.:26:47.

the club. I think they will continue with that method going forward. As

:26:48.:26:56.

far as Watford are concerned, Amrabat scored a good one, they

ended up 13th last season. Was it a good season for Watford? A poor

:27:03.:27:08.

season? They have stayed up after a relegation battle. It is a good

:27:09.:27:13.

season. There will always be discontent at certain styles, at

:27:14.:27:16.

certain times of the season, especially a club like Watford

:27:17.:27:19.

because they have gained result in a way that isn't particularly pleasing

on the I. That is what I have heard from some of the supporters. I guess

:27:24.:27:29.

it is a balance, what do you want? I think the thing is the identity. The

:27:30.:27:33.

turnover of players, the constant change of manager. It's difficult

:27:34.:27:38.

for supporters to feel a part of it. Sometimes if you start the season

well and finished badly that is what you remember. That's the problem.

:27:42.:27:45.

They got themselves into a great position early on then they fell

:27:46.:27:49.

back. Last season, Manchester City, you can see them six games without a

:27:50.:27:53.

win. More football on the BBC throughout this week.

Thanks to Danny and Mark. This evening was party time at the Bridge

:28:08.:28:14.

and they will have another one on Sunday. You will see that on Match

Of The Day. Tonight is very much the homecoming party. Chelsea feeding

off the energy of a jubilant crowd. John Terry is in! A fairy tale final

season at Stamford Bridge. Would you believe it! That was not in the

script. Azpilicueta! The champions are enjoying their homecoming

:28:40.:28:45.

parade. Amrabat is in! Terrific goal. Okaka has levelled for

Watford. Chelsea win another one... Fabregas! Party night at Stamford

:28:56.:29:00.

Bridge. Chelsea four, Watford three. A quite brilliant evening.
