Chelsea have returned to the Champions League following their win over Watford in their penultimate league game of the season.
The Blues are back among the big boys of European football after the 3-0 home victory over FA Cup finalists Watford on Sunday afternoon.
Chelsea were frustrated throughout the first half before three second-half goals secured victory.
Young England international midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek scored the opening goal for the hosts just after the halftime interval off a cross from star player Eden Hazard before the Belgian international provided the corner kick for David Luiz to double the Blues’ advantage.
Chelsea striker Gonzalo Higuain made sure of the points with a third goal that was more than enough to take Chelsea above London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and into third place on the league table.
The Blues sealed Champions League qualification after Arsenal and Manchester United in fifth place and sixth place respectively failed to win their games on Sunday.
Arsenal were held at home by Brighton and Hove Albion in a game that ended in a 1-1 draw despite the fact that the Seagulls were safe before their clash while the same scoreline was recorded for the game between basement club Huddersfield Town and visitors Manchester United who failed to beat the already relegated team.
