Middlesbrough have been relegated from the Premier League courtesy of a 3-0 defeat to title-chasing Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Boro arrived in West London knowing that they needed a victory to realistically stand any chance of bridging the seven-point gap to Swansea City, but they were utterly outclassed as strikes from Diego Costa and Nemanja Matic either side of a Brad Guzan own goal took Chelsea to within one win of the Premier League title.

The Blues now sit seven points clear of Tottenham Hotspur at the top of the4 table and will wrap up their second title in the space of three years with victory over West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns on Friday night.
