EPL: Batshuayi strike wins Chelsea title

13 Mai 2017

Substitute Michy Batshuayi's late goal clinched the Premier League title for Chelsea as they beat West Bromwich Albion 1-0 on Friday but they were made to fight all the way for the victory they craved at The Hawthorns.

28 - games won so far, which is more than any team in the league.

Conte, who attended his post-match media conference in a tracksuit, said: "I have to change my suit because my suit is a disaster now".

Players to have appeared in every Chelsea league game this term - Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta.

Michy Batshuayi, flung on 15 minutes from time with the game goalless, scored the goal which claimed the trophy with Conte at the heart of the visitors' joyous celebrations out on the pitch, in front of their 2,773 travelling supporters, after the final whistle.

"It wasn't easy for me to arrive in England and try different habits, a different language and inherit players after a bad season".

Red cards for Chelsea players in league games this season.

'Witness Intimidation': Trump May Have Crossed Legal Lines With Comey Tweet
The tapes, once turned over, showed that Nixon had obstructed the investigation into the Watergate break-in. Trump's tweet suggested, of course, that the president was privately recording his conversations.

The Italian's side finally broke through West Brom's stubborn resistance with eight minutes remaining and will now chase the double when they face Arsenal in the FA Cup final on May 27. So it's important to celebrate now. This league is fantastic to play in and be a manager in.

"Last year was so bad, so to bounce back and win the league in such a way is wonderful". This is my first Premier League title. "Every single manager can have a good idea of football, but if you don't have the players behind you, it's impossible to reach targets like this".

The Blues' main attacking threats struggled to find a spark, with Eden Hazard's frustration summed up with one long-range shot that went out for a corner, but Conte's side found a way to win, illustrating once again why they are worthy champions.

"The beauty of football", Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas said, "a player who didn't play a lot scores the winning goal for the championship".

"When you're playing the best team in the land, and they are, they've proved that over the season, you dont need them getting that little slice of luck". But they worked very hard and, today, Michy is a great example.

Lampard, Chelsea's record goalscorer, won his three titles alongside club captain John Terry - who will leave the club this summer after a 19-year career at Stamford Bridge. It is a special moment.
