Chelsea were crowned Premier League champions on Friday night after a late Michy Batshuayi goal secured the victory needed to secure the title.It looked like Chelsea would have to wait to secure the league title as West Brom frustrated the visitors for long periods.
But with eight minutes remaining substitute Batshuayo became the unlikely hero for the Stamford Bridge side, as he steered his shot past Ben Foster.

The final whistle signalled wild celebrations among the Chelsea team, fans and manager Antonio Conte who was tossed into the air by his players:
@ChelseaFC Dear Leicester,
Thank You for being nuts by selling Kante to us which destroyed your team & built ours into a force.
Thanks, Chelsea FC
