LONDON ENGLAND- APRIL 25 Diego Costa of Chelsea celebrates as he scores their third goal with team mates during the Premier League match between Chelsea and Southampton at Stamford Bridge

While the trophy was claimed at the Hawthorns, Chelsea's title win is a season-long story, a campaign of tactical manoeuvrability and a manager that used the season's darkest point to tear it down and start doing things his way. Conte, who already had a reputation of being a master tactician.

Once the title was confirmed, kind words of congratulations from all over the football world.

Pulis praised his players and Albion supporters for testing Chelsea, who had to dig deep before Michy Batshuayi's victor eight minutes from time.

Naturally this included Atlético Madrid striker Fernando Torres.

When the match clock passed 80 minutes with the score at 0-0, it began to look as if Chelsea would have to wait for next Monday's home tie with Watford to seal the championship.

"For this reason I have to say thanks to my players".

Cool, cool cool cool.

Now, it's the time for the Chelsea players to enjoy this win as they have worked hard entire season for this.

"From that moment Chelsea became the champions-elect if you like, because then, automatically, everything dropped into place and all of a sudden they were one".

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has had the golden touch in his first season in the English Premier League, all the way through to the title-clinching game. I think if you can continue with these players you can improve a lot.

On the decision to bring on Batshuayi for Eden Hazard, boss Antonio Conte said: "I think Hazard and Pedro were a bit exhausted".

It was not vintage Chelsea on Friday but they got the job done on a tense night in the Midlands. "There were other important points in the season, such as the win at Manchester City, but every single player found in the new system the best way for them".

0 - red cards for Chelsea players in league games this season.

That was accurate; but it overlooked a good humour, and a relaxed nature, which helped lift the fug of failure of Jose Mourinho's scorched earth final months, and the diffident team reaction to Guus Hiddink.

Shortly after Michy Batshuayi scored the all-important goal eight minutes from time to crown Antonio Conte's team champions, pockets of disturbance erupted in the Birmingham Road End and the East Stand. They are a great team, with several of the best players in the league, and Conte proved himself once again to be one of the best coaches in the game.

"Every game I feel like I have played with my players".

He has made 114 tackles, 2,011 successful passes and 79 interceptions as he has imposed himself on a Chelsea midfield which had previously lacked a hard-working general who was content with doing the basics right.

Former player Frank Lampard went further than Ancelotti, suggesting that the Italian has all the ingredients to establish a lasting legacy at the club.
