Chelsea clinch the Premier League title

Antonio Conte spent the immediate aftermath of Chelsea's title-winning 1-0 victory at West Bromwich Albion on Friday being bounced skywards by his players but once back on terra firma his mind was already focusing on the next target - the double.

Chelsea settled the title race with 2 games to spare after a late goal from Michy Batshuayi.

― Reuters picLONDON, May 13 ― Gary Cahill hailed Chelsea's Premier League title triumph as the ideal response to the critics who wrote them off earlier this season.

Star striker Diego Costa has been their top scorer in the ongoing Premier League season, having scored 20 goals till date, just four less than Everton's Romelu Lukaku.

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. They showed me a great attitude to try to do something great this season.

The Italian, victor of three Serie A titles as Juventus manager, has transformed Chelsea from flops to champions in one season with largely the same group of players. "When we lost to Arsenal and Liverpool - to come back and regroup was unbelievable and fundamental in our season".

People wrote us off as a team and individually but, consistently, we have been the best in the league. I think he will be backed and he does need backing. After this win we must be happy, we must be pleased. It was the key moment for us because every single player found in this system the best for them.

Chelsea round off their season with two home games against Watford on Monday and Sunderland next Sunday, when they will lift the Premier League trophy.

"Because we didn't have the Champions League, there wasn't as much football", Courtois added.

Ancelotti went on to win the FA Cup as well and one suspects the insatiable Conte will feel a sense of anti-climax if his side do not beat Arsenal at Wembley Stadium on May 27. "It is my first Premier League title", Chelsea defender Luiz, who has been a defensive rock since returning to the club this season after two years in Paris, said.
