Chelsea Wins English Premier League 2016/17

Chelsea are Champions after they won the English Premier League title after a dramatic late victory at West Bromwich Albion.

Substitute Michy Batshuayi prodded home Cesar Azpilicueta’s shot-cross from close range in the 82nd minute to see the Blues pass a dogged West Brom side that looked to be in the ascendancy in the second period.

Victory gives Antonio Conte’s men an unassailable 10 -point lead with three games left to play for the closest title contenders Tottenham Hotspurs, and this represents a remarkable turnaround from last season that saw them finish 10th.

Chelsea came into the tie needing only two wins from their final four matches to take the trophy after Spurs lost against West Ham on 5 May.

They dispatched Middles Brough 3-0 on Monday, but were made to work hard for tonight’s decisive victory at the Hawthorns.
