The secret behind Chelsea's Premier League victory this season? Simplicity

Arsenal hero makes surprise prediction about where Wayne Rooney will be next season

Twitter went into a meltdown after Chelsea became English Premier League champions following their 1-0 defeat of West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns on Friday night.

They last won the league back in 2015 under Jose Mourinho, before finishing tenth last season.

The Blues needed a win to secure victory and clinched the three points, meaning they've now wrapped up the title with two games spare.

"They've got some fantastic players who can change games in a blink of an eye, that's what they've done over the season".

West Brom manager Tony Pulis was full of praise for Conte ― both for his infectious touchline enthusiasm and his ability to alter the tactics when his approach was going wrong.

The team has also reached the final of the FA Cup, where it will play Arsenal at Wembley Stadium on 27 May.

Conte's first win against one of Chelsea's "big" rivals lifted his side to fourth.

Any travelling Chelsea fans expecting a procession towards the title were given a reality check inside the opening 30 seconds when Thibaut Courtois was forced into an early save, tipping Salomon Rondon's header over the crossbar.

The Gunners should not be too disillusioned with the possibility of missing out on this one occasion however, much in the way that a year outside the coveted European competition has allowed Chelsea to get back to winning ways.

It was a new experience for David Luiz, however, after the Brazilian left Chelsea in 2014 for Paris Saint-Germain, before returning to Stamford Bridge at the start of this season. "After this triumph I think we can be happy with how the season has gone". They had determination, persistence, talent, players who know how to execute a game plan and a manager who knows precisely how to define it.

"Every game I feel like I have played with my players!" Still, only Everton's Idrissa Gueye (132) has made more than his 114 tackles and he ranks third for interceptions and recoveries in the Premier League.

The Blues have the highest number of away wins, the highest number of goals, and the fewest shots on targets faced this season.

"They're the best team in the land this year".

Former England captain Terry has now won five Premier League titles and Lampard suggested the 36-year-old's influence will be tough to replace.
