Chelsea champions thanks to Michy Batshuayi's late strike against West Brom

Inter will look to tempt Conte back to his homeland with a hefty warchest this summer

A LATE Michy Batshuayi goal saw Chelsea beat West Bromwich Albion 1-0 and subsequently win the Premier League crown tonight (May 12).

There were scenes of jubilation as this goal sealed a second EPL title in three years.

Batshuayi and Willian came on in place of Hazard and Pedro with 15 minutes remaining, and the former was in the right place at the right time following a pinball-like piece of play inside West Brom's box to decide the fixture.

The Blues left it late at The Hawthorns on Friday, Michy Batshuayi's 82nd-minute strike eventually securing the victory to see Chelsea move 10 points clear of Tottenham, which has three matches to play.

The Belgium striker, a
£33 million signing from Marseille last summer, made his 18th Premier League appearance off the bench and finally showed his poacher's instinct, seven minutes later, with his second league goal to send Chelsea and Conte delirious.

"People write you off at the start of the season".

"It's a great achievement for the players".

Ann Coulter a no-show at raucous but peaceful Berkeley rally
Gavin McInnes, co-founder of Vice Media and founder of the pro-Trump "Proud Boys", was one of several speakers at the gathering. A handful of right-wing protesters milled around Thursday afternoon, and a small group of left-wing protesters gathered nearby.

Conte's players were tuned in to such an extent that they seized control of the title race by equalling a single-season top-flight record with 13 successive victories. "I'm delighted for the lads, especially after last season", he said.

Substitute Nacer Chadli shot wide at the end of another break as Chelsea looked uncharacteristically vulnerable, but any concerns were put to bed as Azpilicueta made the most of Cahill's wayward effort to find Batshuayi, who picked the ideal time to score his first Premier League goal since August and get the Blues' title celebrations under way in earnest.

The Italian can now set his sights on emulating compatriot Carlo Ancelotti's 2010 feat of winning the league and domestic Double as the Blues prepare for an FA Cup final against Arsenal at Wembley on 27 May. That would have been a travesty for this football club and this team, who have worked so hard all season.

Mourino has also pointed to Chelsea's absence from European competition helping, so next season's return to the Champions League will certainly challenge Conte's working methods.

The first year of the "super coach" era in the Premier League belongs to Conte. Moses Wins First EPL Title With Chelsea appeared first on Complete Sports Nigeria.

Chelsea centre Cesc Fàbregas says at first they were very nervous because of the pressure from West Brom.
