Chelsea's Italian head coach Antonio Conte (second left) leads celebrations of victory after the English Premier League match between West Bromwich Albion and Chelsea at The Hawthorns stadium in West Bromwich, west Midlands on Saturday.

Chelsea were suffering late nerves as a dogged West Brom threatened to prolong the title race but Belgian global Batshuayi prodded home the victor after 82 minutes to spark manic celebrations from triumphant manager Antonio Conte.

The Mirror is reporting that Lukaku was one of the individuals watching from home, even commenting on the video.

Hot on the heels of a 2-1 defeat to Liverpool at Stamford Bridge, this drubbing by their London rivals was Chelsea's lowest point of the whole season. This is a dream that has come true.

Conte said the drubbing by Arsenal, a game in which he switched to a three-at-the-back system midway through when his side trailed 3-0, was a turning point. He made a total of 38 changes coming into Friday's match, far less than any of his rivals who were obliged to rest players in between Champions League or Europa League commitments. We had to change and find a new suit for our team.

Antonio Conte can finish the season a double victor if the Blues beat Arsenal in the FA Cup final.

"I think Cesc has probably moaned and groaned these last couple of seasons, he's been drifting along, did he really want to sign for Chelsea?". They've got consistency - they've had the reliability throughout with the same back five and goalkeeper, the same midfield and the same front three.

"I'm enjoying it a lot because when you put a lot of passion, enthusiasm and hours into your work, and you don't sleep, when you arrive in the moment it's only right to celebrate with my fans, staff and the club". But the Italian now has his eyes on completing the Double with victory over Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley on May 27.

"We have two games to celebrate, then we try to make this season from great to fantastic".

His only starts subsequently came in the EFL Cup loss at West Ham in October and the FA Cup early rounds with Peterborough - in which he was sent off for Chelsea's only red card this season - Brentford and Wolves.

"The club want to fight to win every competition".

The result of these changes has seen Chelsea become the dominant force in the Premier League this season, while adopting a new style of play to keep up with the ever evolving tactics of modern day football.

His latest trophy triumph represents the seventh piece of silverware to be collected during Conte's illustrious managerial career.
