Whereas Tottenham Hotspur fluffed their lines at the London Stadium last Friday, Chelsea continued their title push on Monday night with the calmness and consistency we've come to expect from Antonio Conte's side this season.
Boro were consigned to the Championship next season after a 3-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge left it a mathematical impossibility for them to finish above the other top flight strugglers.
Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas was named as the Man of the Match after the Blues' 3-0 triumph over Middlesbrough last night, and was interviewed by Sky Sports in a post-match hearing. "My players deserve to win the league".
"The fans didn't stop singing, wherever we've been this season they've been the same".
"I think the most important thing is the football club, a terrific football club...it's not about my situation, it's about finishing the season well and making sure Middlesbrough can bounce back".
"We started the season not in the right way, with a lot of problems, and only through hard work and finding the right solutions together have we found the right way".

West Brom boss Tony Pulis is determined to prolong Chelsea's wait to be crowned Premier League champions when the sides meet at The Hawthorns on Friday.
From the opening moments when Guzan turned Alonso's shot on to the bar, Chelsea were rampant, nerveless and played with the swagger, poise and menace of the best team in the Premier League. For sure, when you play against City and win the way we did, the confidence improved.
Fabregas urged Chelsea to wrap up the Premier League title on Friday with a win over West Bromwich Albion. "We haven't scored enough goals".
He added: "It would be nice if we got a result to go around the pitch and appreciate our own supporters after that game", added defender Gareth McAuley.
"We are looking forward to a game of football which has three points riding on it, nothing else".
