  • The late, late show

    The late, late show0

    Blues manager Thomas Tuchel applauds his players, whose persistence was rewarded with a last-gasp winner at the Bridge, where in-form Newcastle were the visitors. And it was the same story for Emma Hayes and Chelsea Women, hosting Aston Villa at Kingsmeadow at the same time on Sunday, where a late goal from Sam Kerr snatched

    How to grind out a result0

    Sometimes you win handsomely, sometimes you have to grind out a result. Chelsea’s 1-0 win against Newcastle at the Bridge fell firmly into the second category.

    The pathetic display up at Newcastle on the final day of the league season means Chelsea miss out on the £38million bonanza of Champions League football… but also sees them approach Wembley in the wrong frame of mind. Manchester United’s 1-0 win (with key players rested ahead of the FA Cup final) means the Red
