CHELSEA overcame Crystal Palace 3-2 to push on for a Champions League spot next season.
And on the transfer front the Blues are making progress with Kai Havertz and said to be willing to offer Fikayo Tomori to West Ham on loan in order to secure Declan Rice.
BLUES HAVE A BIG CHANCE
Chelsea are likely to face a scrap with Bayern Munich to sign Kai Havertz this summer.Real Madrid are also interested in the German attacker, but need to raise the funds to land him.According to the Telegraph,
Leverkusen want £90million for Havertz, while Chelsea value him at around £70m.The 21-year-old is determined to leave Bayer this summer to find a bigger club, but with the impact of coronavirus lockdown, transfer fees are likely to be reduced.
KURT THE COURAGEOUS
Kurt Zouma is being credited with keeping Chelsea’s top four chase on track after his stunning tackle on Christian Benteke helped the Blues to a huge win.
Palace were battering on the door, hitting the post in the 95th minute, before former Aston Villa and Liverpool striker Benteke was put clean through on goal in the last minute.Zouma, 25, slid in courageously though and rattled the ball out of the Belgian’s possession and into touch before he could get a shot on goal.Blues fans were eternally grateful on social media.
