Middlesbrough relegated from Premier League after defeat at Chelsea

Defeat at Chelsea relegated Middlesbrough

Defeat at Chelsea relegated Middlesbrough

Chelsea have one hand on the Premier League title and a win at West Brom on Friday will confirm the Blues as champions.

West Brom have won three of their last five Premier League games against Chelsea at the Hawthorns (D1 L1) - this after losing each of their first five between 2003 and 2011. We are very close.

"For sure now, I'm a bit relaxed". It's great. Now we need to do another step. "We do have the FA Cup final against Chelsea coming up and we'll give it our all to try to win it".

The Blues haven't looked back since and will face West Brom on Friday knowing a victory will secure the title.

Speaking to Sky Sports after Chelsea's 1-0 win against the Baggies on Friday, Lampard added: "They are by far the strongest team this year".

"It's very important for us to go step by step".

From a prohibitive angle at the back post, Alonso drilled a shot towards goal and saw the ball ricochet of Guzan's left thigh and bounce into the net.

The Italian added: "Cesc is one of the best examples of our season".

Surprisingly for players with over 40 Prem assists, Fabregas is sandwiched between David Beckham and Eric Cantona with the most assists per game. He seemed particularly taken by the space behind Boro right back Fabio da Silva. Now Cesc is showing himself to be a fantastic player. Now he's deserving this'.

West Bromwich Albion are one of those clubs positioned comfortably in mid-table with nothing to play for in the remaining games.

"The most important thing at the moment is the club". I don't think Antonio will expect anything different. In #Italy it's very, very hard to see a team getting relegated and the players receive (applause)'. We've pulled up short. "We have to reflect on what's gone wrong". The infrastructure is all there. "We want it to become a great season". We've not won enough games or scored enough goals.

All that matters is this football club.

It's not easy what has happened to me.

'I don't know what director of football means. "The more games I play, the better I get".

The central defender told the club's official website, www.mfc.co.uk: "It's not about me, it never has been".

Wenger previously said that he had made up his mind about his future and would announce it in March or April, but no announcement was forthcoming.

Asked Tuesday if he would now reveal his decision over whether to sign the contract, he replied simply: "No".

The Gunners must win their last four games and hope Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United drop points in order to upset the odds and extend their Champions League qualification streak to 21 seasons. "I have to say the fans all season have been outstanding, home and away, and the least they deserve is Premier League football".

Fabregas, only in the starting line-up after an injury to N'Golo Kante, was imperious, creating two of Chelsea's three goals and setting up countless other chances.
