This is latest CHELSEA News with Tuchel making a statement of intent over claims of Frank Lampard record with Chelsea stings.
Chelsea’s season has come to an end after 62 games of highs, lows, injuries, COVID, VAR checks, Sky Italia interviews, punishments, more VAR checks, and more injuries.
With one more game against an already relegated Watford on Sunday afternoon, with Champions League qualifying and third-place secured, this is the tamest finale to a season full of drama.
By the time Chelsea wave farewell to the 2021/22 season, the aim is that they will have sent fatigued brains home satisfied with a win, their ninth at home this season.
The lowest since the reigning Champions’ terrible 2015/16 season, when they finished 10th.
Chelsea’s anticipated greatest point total since their last title victory will be counterbalanced by one of their worst home records.
Even Frank Lampard’s 66-point tally to qualify for the Champions League in 2019/20 included 11 wins at Stamford Bridge.

This season, Thomas Tuchel has emphasized the importance of crucial injuries to his team. Even without Ben Chilwell, it’s difficult to make a serious argument for this group, which is substantially weaker than the one Lampard inherited in 2019.
It highlights the distance between Chelsea and the league’s top two, who, regardless of who wins the title, may reach 15 victories for the season at home on Sunday.
Latest Chelsea News: Tuchel’s strategy
I would anticipate more rotation on the last day against an already relegated opponent than on Thursday.
Given the final appearances for Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, if the Danish defender is available, it would be fantastic to watch both of them play one last time.
Although it hasn’t been confirmed, this may be the final encounter for players like Kepa Arrizabalaga, Marcos Alonso, Jorginho, and any of the strikers who have been linked with a move this season.
As said on Thursday, the introduction of an academy product like Harvey Vale would be a welcome change from the bench players who are unlikely to have a future under Tuchel.
Latest Chelsea News: The Oppo
For Watford, the reverse encounter at Vicarage Road in December, which caused Chelsea significant issues, seems like a long time ago.
Even though the Blues won by a slender 2-1 margin, that game marked the beginning of the end of their title hopes.
Watford has been relegated to the Championship. The Hornets’ expected management merry-go-round continues, even more absurd than Chelsea’s, and appears to have finally caught up with them.
Emmanuel Dennis, Ismaila Sarr, and Cucho Hernandez might all be released this summer, posing a difficult task for newly hired coach Rob Edwards, who recently guided Forest Green to promotion from League 2.
A kind word for Roy Hodgson, who will step down as England manager following Sunday’s match. A real gentleman and respected colleague in the game, who will hopefully receive a warm welcome from both sets of fans on Sunday.
Given the low stakes for this game, this is perhaps the least animated lineup this season. Let’s have some fun before the summer, just for fun’s sake.
A switch to a 4-2-2-2 formation, the goodbye of certain players, and perhaps more thrilling offensive play and goals, which were sorely lacking in Thursday’s 0-0 draw with Leicester.
Chelsea’s Predicted Lineup: (4-2-2-2) James Arrizabalaga, Nathaniel Chalobah, Rudiger, Xabi Alonso, Jorginho, Kante, Vale, Mount, Havertz, and Romelu Lukaku
