"Obviously it's not easy to play every minute and win the league", he said. So, how did these top six managers do?
Chelsea have the chance to complete a domestic double when they face Arsenal in the FA Cup final next Sunday. He has made 717 appearances for Chelsea. It was 4-0 in the 42nd minute as Fernandinho powered through the defence to score from close range with another Brazilian, Gabriel Jesus, adding a fifth goal 13 minutes after the break.

Thanks to Chelsea TV we get a glimpse inside this secret, private party, including the farewell video that the rest of the team taped for their captain. An terrible run of form in the spring saw his side fall out of the title race, and the top four, while a 10-2 aggregate defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League added further humiliation.

The club's star performer, Alexis Sanchez, has been a huge part of the squad's goals, scoring 24. Yes, they lost Sadio Mane to the Africa Cup of Nations at the time but Mane without Coutinho is like having Rush without Dalglish.
Let Chelsea honor Terry however they want.
