Consistent Chelsea deserve top position, says West Brom's Pulis

Cesc Fabregas has lauded Chelsea's title win as "unbelievable" after Michy Batshuayi's late strike against West Brom secured the Premier League crown for the Blues.

Chris Brunt has warned Chelsea that West Bromwich Albion will not "roll over" when the Blues attempt to win the Premier League title at the Hawthorns on Friday. I think that Michy paid me a lot with this change but it's great for me, this is my first season.

And even as Juventus advance to the Champions League final, some newspapers still found time to put Conte front and center instead, with Corriere dello Sport among those claiming that Inter have not been stayed by Chelsea's hands-off warning this week and intend to come back with another offer.

"And I have to tell thanks for their commitment for their work-rate".

He said: 'It has been a great season.

Here we look at their most influential players this season.

"It wasn't easy to arrive in England and try different habits and a different language and also after Chelsea's bad season".

Last season, Chelsea mounted a dismal defence of the Premier League title and Jose Mourinho was sacked in December 2015, before the club eventually limped to a 10th-place finish under interim boss Guus Hiddink.

"Everybody is happy. It's great to take the trophy".

"If he's going to leave this is the year to do it", said 38-year-old Lampard.

You're probably getting bored of reading that statement, but wrong we were with Alonso.

Tottenham would end that winning run in early January with a victory at White Hart Lane and when Crystal Palace inflicted a surprise defeat on Chelsea in early April, it left Mauricio Pochettino's side waiting for another slip-up.

Darren Fletcher's lofted pass found Salomon Rondon and his flicked header drew a smart save from Thibaut Courtois.

"It's not just about Chelsea". The match ended with a bench-clearing melee following a Sergio Aguero tackle on David Luiz.

Batshuayi stabbed home with eight minutes remaining, and afterwards he and his team-mates celebrated in style.

"We didn't need Chelsea to get a bit of luck", said West Brom manager Tony Pulis. I don't say we could have gone through but the gap could have been closer.

"They deserve a helluva lot of credit but we have a responsibility to our supporters". If this was the calibre of player Chelsea were signing, then they were doomed. It's been a delight for me to sit and watch this.
