It was in July that Batshuayi signed a five-year, 40 million euro deal with Chelsea, bringing him to the Premier League for the first time in his career. Chelsea won the match 0-1 meaning they win the.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte: "I think that now it's very important to enjoy this moment and to celebrate this win".

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

Only Manchester United's title-winners of 1993 and Leeds United's 1994-95 side have had a more settled XI in the Premier League era.

Substitute Michy Batshuayi scored in the 82nd minute to confirm Chelsea as champions in Italian manager Antonio Conte's first season in charge.

Chelsea had trouble breaking down a solid West Brom defence for most of the match before Batshuayi's goal, and Fabregas initially thought it might not be their night. He later referred to himself as an "unexpected hero" in a Twitter post.

There were scenes of jubilation as this goal sealed a second EPL title in three years.

"We felt confident in the dressing room all season".

West Brom manager Tony Pulis was full of praise for Conte - both for his infectious touchline enthusiasm and his ability to alter the tactics when his approach was going wrong.

Just after the hour mark, Hazard cut inside and drove in a wild shot that went out for a throw-in.

When club owner Roman Abramovich asked Conte to leave his role as Italy coach to sort out Chelsea's sulking stars, many felt he was on a hiding to nothing. A sliced volley from Gary Cahill fell to Azpilicueta, who found Batshuayi's outstretched leg for the victor.

Victor Moses struck through the legs of James McClean, only to be denied by a brilliant save from Ben Foster after the break.

Conte jumped into the arms of his fellow coaches near the dugout.
