For the second time in three seasons, Chelsea FC are the champions on England thanks a 1-0 victory at West Bromwich Albion on Friday night.

An 84th minute winner from Belgian striker, Michy Batshuayi, was enough to seal Chelsea’s fifth Premier League title in the last 12 years. Since first winning the title in 2004/05, the Blues have won as many trophies as Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham combined (16).

It caps off a dream first English Premier League campaign for Antonio Conte, who has now won domestic titles in his last four seasons in club management, dating back to helping Juventus go undefeated in the 2011/12 Serie A season. His old club even took time out to congratulate him on his achievement, while his current club made sure he further revelled in in his glory after Friday’s match at the Hawthorns.

Chelsea will now turn their attention to the FA Cup final against Arsenal on May 27, as they seeks a league and FA Cup double for the first time since the 2009/10 season under the guidance of another Italian manager, Carlo Ancelotti.
