Late Barkley header helps Chelsea see off Watford as Hodgson bids farewell

Ross Barkley came off the bench to head in a late winner as Chelsea saw off Watford on the final day of the Premier League season and sent Roy Hodgson into retirement on the back of another defeat.

There was little on the line for either side ahead of kick-off, with Chelsea guaranteed third place - barring a defeat and a monumental goal difference swing by Tottenham - and Watford already consigned to the Championship.

That feeling was backed up by each team's starting line-ups, with Chelsea handing Saul Niguez a rare start and Kenedy being brought in for his first league start for the club in five years.
