Chelsea FC are the Premier League 2016/17 champions, following a 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns on Friday night.
An 82nd-minute goal from unlikely hero, Michy Batshuayi was enough to seal the West London club’s fifth Premier League trophy, which is also the second in three (3) years.
After the final whistle, the Blues‘ manager, Antonio Conte and his team led the celebrations in front of the away supporters.
Skipper Gary Cahill, who spoke to Sky Sports at the game said, “These are times in football. These opportunities that you want to grasp with both hands. You just want to cherish them. Consistently I think we’ve been the best team in the league. There’s no better feeling than this in football.”
“People have written us off as a team and individually and this has shut them up. We are champions. It’s another one in the cabinet,” he added.
Club captain, John Terry also told Sky Sports that “these boys have been on the field doing it week in week out. It’s been a delight to sit and watch, a different perspective. The togetherness was shown from day one.”
Antonio Conte also becomes the fourth manager to win the Premier League in his first season.
Chelsea plays Watford and Sunderland at Stamford Bridge on Monday, May 15 and Sunday, May 21 respectively, in their final two Premier League matches of the season.
