The Final Whistle on Hate team's picture with New England Revolution and Chelsea players combined


The Blues got the win against New England Revolution in the charity match held at the Gillette Stadium, where both teams promoted equality and tolerance.

Chelsea FC arrived in the United States to face New England Revolution for the Final Whistle on Hate friendly match, where the MLS franchise and the Premier League club sought to promote equality and tolerance through sport.

The Gillette Stadium witnessed the duel between the Revs and one of the giants of European football, who introduced a shining line-up led by Hazard, a player that could be playing his last game in a Chelsea shirt.

The game was dominated from start to finish by the Blues, who found the back of the American team's net early on, Ross Barkley scoring the opening goal in the 3rd minute. That advantage was added to by Giroud in the 29th minute with a header to put the game 2-0 in favour of the English side.

The visitors also dominated the second half, a half that saw virtually two new teams, especially from New England who sought to create more chances and find space to score. But Chelsea, despite at times allowing the MLS side to have control of the ball, were aware of the Revs every move, and stopped every attempt.

Barkley scored his double after tapping in Higuain's shot, and that goal ended the game as a contest. However, this victory was bitter sweet for the Blues as they lost a valuable player ahead of the Europa League final against Arsenal, Loftus-Cheek leaving the pitch limping after a hard blow to the leg on the 67th minute.

Bad news ahead of UEL final

The club is yet to confirm the status of Loftus-Cheek's injury and probable returning timeline, but everything indicates that the player will miss the final against Arsenal on Wednesday 29 May 2019.

Despite the loss of Loftus-Cheek, New England Revolution and Chelsea FC produced a great game for a great cause.
