    This sums up Chelsea.

    Wing-back Victor Moses charges into the box, then falls over when attempting a shot at goal.

    Ayoze Perez



    Newcastle tearing Chelsea to shreds.

    Jonjo Shelvey involved again and his deep cross is pulled back by Florian Lejeune, for Ayoze Perez to tuck in his second into an open net.

    Absolutely incredible last day of the season scoreline.

    The ball falls to Ross Barkley inside the area, but his low shot is brilliantly kept out by the legs of Martin Dubravka.

    The Newcastle goalkeeper and fans celebrate the save like a goal.

    Olivier Giroud once scored that stunning scorpion kick for Arsenal and the Frenchman nearly pulls off another stunning, acrobatic goal.

    Jamaal Lascelles has a quick check, everything seems to be in order the Newcastle defender makes his way back on to the pitch.


    Newcastle 1-0 Chelsea

    A change for Newcastle at the start of the second half.

    It looks like goalscorer Dwight Gayle has a problem and he makes way for Joselu.

  18. Post update

    Newcastle 1-0 Chelsea

    Painful, very painful.

    Newcastle skipper Jamaal Lascelles with his body on the line, getting smacked flush *you know where* by Eden Hazard's cross.

    The Belgian laughs, Lascelles lays on the ground with tears in his eyes.

    Tor Noppharat‏: If Chelsea plans to play like this as a prep for FA Cup Final, they might as well pack their bags and go on summer holiday right after this game.
