Chelsea, Arsenal end EPL season with thumping wins

EPL champions Chelsea ended title-winning season with a 3-1 win over Sunderland while Arsenal romped home to a 4-1 victory over West Brom.

Before raising the Premier League trophy, Chelsea's players first lifted striker Didier Drogba during Sunday's match.

The 37-year-old Drogba was allowed to make the unusual, lengthy mid-game farewell to Chelsea fans after being theatrically substituted around 30 minutes into the game.

Drogba was carried to the touchline by his teammates before waving goodbye to each corner of Stamford Bridge.

There was no final goal for Drogba, with his replacement, Diego Costa, instead quickly scoring from the penalty spot to cancel out Steven Fletcher's Sunderland opener.

Loic Remy then scored twice for the champions in the second half.

Meanwhile, Theo Walcott scored a first-half hat-trick on a rare start for the England winger as Arsenal beat West Bromwich Albion 4-1 to secure third place in the Premier League and a direct berth in the Champions League group stage.

Walcott stated a case for inclusion in next weekend's FA Cup final against Aston Villa by netting in the fourth, 14th and 37th minutes. Jack Wilshere also scored in the first half to give Arsenal a 4-0 lead at the break.

Gareth McAuley headed in a consolation for West Brom in the 57th minute at Etihad Stadium.
