Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel was happy to end the season with victory over Watford on Sunday.

Goals from Kai Havertz and Ross Barkley earned all three points against already-relegated Watford, the latter coming late in stoppage time after the Hornets had snatched an 87th-minute equaliser through Dan Gosling.

"When you play a game with not so much pressure than usual, it can be a little strange but I am happy we won," said Tuchel after the match.

"It looked like we almost gave it away again at the end and had another draw at home but we came back strongly. Reece and Ross turned it around in our favour. I'm happy for Ross to score on what was his 100th game in a Chelsea shirt.

"It was a mood changer for us today and we are happy to end with a win. The season was more or less finished for us so we gave some players an opportunity to play who didn't have many minutes. I was happy they could show up and take a deserved win, which is a big step up in terms of consistency for us.

"We also managed to get Chilly back on the field which was really nice so overall I'm happy for a good final day."
