The Frank Lampard boys, Chelsea FC got a 2-0 home win over Wolverhampton Wanderers in their final 2019/2020 English Premier League (EPL) game on Sunday to secure a UEFA Champions League place.
First half goals from Mason Mount and Olivier Giroud gave them the win, which has come with it a top four finish.
Four minutes had been added to a nervy opening period when Marcos Alonso went down outside the Wolves area.
