Chelsea FC have emerged champions of the English Premier League following their 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday at Stamford Bridge.
This is the first Premier League title since 2010 for the Blues who have been dominant this season; leading the EPL table from start to finish and have now wrapped up the title even with three more games to go.
Eden Hazard’s goal on the stroke of half time was enough to win the Blues their fifth league title – and third under Jose Mourinho, who guided them to glory in 2005 and 2006 during his first spell in charge.
It was the 19th goal of the season for the recently crowned PFA Player of the Year.
Nigerian midfielder, John Obi Mikel, was in the thick of action as Chelsea romped to victory on Sunday. The Super Eagles star came in at the start of the second half to replace Juan Cuadrado and he did justify his inclusion.
Chelsea now have an unassailable 83 points from 35 games.
