Chelsea have bitten, on Friday night, West Bromwich Albion by a lone goal to nil at the Hawthorns, making them this season’s English premier league winners ahead of Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal, with two more games to play.
An eighty-second (82) minute goal from Michy Batshuayi ensured that the Blues picked the required points to secure the title away from home.
Fans and players were thrown into wild jubilation at the arrival of the winning goal. The celebrations grew even bigger after the referee’s final whistle.
On what pushed him to effect a double substitution in the game, Chelsea’s manager, Antonio Conte sad, “This moment of the game I think Hazard was a bit tired and also Pedro, and I wanted to give more energy with Michy and Willian.
I think that Michy paid me a lot with this change but it’s great for me, this is my first season. It wasn’t easy for me to arrive in England to try a different habit, a different language and also a lot of players after a bad season.”
He was happy his change in tactics paid off and won him the Premier League title on his first attempt with the club.
