The reward was showcased in May as the Benitez could say goodbye with a trophy to his CV. The second-leg of the semi-final was a comfortable 3-1 win, and the Blues showed up with a last-gasp headed winner by Ivanovic to secure the crown by a goal against Benfica in Amsterdam.

Little success could have been drawn out of the league with a Top Four spot practically secure, but it was with the thanks of a 1-0 win against Man United. That was followed by a draw to Tottenham, fundamental as the Top Four rivals failed to truly catch up on the Blues, before crowd-pleasing 2-1 wins against Aston Villa and then Everton to round off the 38 league match season.
