West Brom 0 Chelsea 1: Michy Batshuayi Goal Clinch The Premier League Title For The Blues


Chelsea were crowned Premier League champions as Michy Batshuayi’s late goal gave them the victory they required to secure the title at West Brom.

Batshuayi had not scored in the league since August but slid to meet a Cesar Azpilicueta cut-back in the 82nd minute – just moments after coming off the bench – to ensure the Blues secured a second league crown in three seasons and Antonio Conte triumphed at the first attempt.

The final whistle sparked wild celebrations among Chelsea’s fans, and manager Conte was tossed high into the air by his squad.

Tottenham’s loss at West Ham last Friday and Chelsea’s 3-0 defeat of Middlesbrough on Monday had meant the stage was set, and a dramatic late success at The Hawthorns means Conte’s men have an unassailable 10-point lead over Spurs, who have three games to play.
