Pedro says farewell to Stamford Bridge with a win and CL spot (2-0)

Stamford Bridge hosted on Sunday the last game for Pedro at the Blues' stadium, and the fixture ended with a win and good news for Chelsea: the Blues will be playing Champions League football next season. Two well-taken goals in added time at the end of the first half secured a deserved final-day victory at The Bridge.

With Manchester United winning at Leicester in the other match affecting today’s outcome, Frank Lampard’s first season in charge finishes with him having guided his beloved Blues to fourth place in the Premier League, unquestionably a desired outcome back in August. The chance to add a cherry on top comes in the FA Cup final at Wembley next week.

Today it was goals from Mason Mount and Olivier Giroud that did the damage. The youngster, perhaps our star performer, curled in a delicious free-kick, and he then set up his more experienced team-mate Giroud, who finished with aplomb for his seventh goal since the restart.

We saw out the second half with few scares, limiting Wolves to very little in front of goal, crowning off an eventful, extended and ultimately successful league campaign.

Pedro played the final stage of the game, after replacing Mason Mount at 85'. It was his last appearance ever at Stamford Bridge, as the Spaniard said after the game: “My last game at Stamford Bridge. Thanks to every fan for your support through this years, to the club for giving me the chance of being a Blue and to my teammates. You'll be in my heart forever. Now let's fight for FA Cup trophy!!! BIG BLUE FAMILY”, he typed on his social media accounts after the game.
