Chelsea's Premier League title triumph in numbers

Only one year later to celebrate this win in a league where there are for me big, big teams with great players, great managers, it's great.

They did so in typically effective fashion, grinding out a 1-0 win at West Bromwich Albion that, while not particularly flashy, typified the character that manager Antonio Conte has instilled into this team after the thundering disaster that was their last season under Jose Mourinho.

However, when asked whether he expected to stay at Chelsea, the 25-year-old said: 'Yes, of course.

Michy Batshuayi could get his first Premier League start against Watford after scoring the title-clinching goal on his 18th substitute appearance and N'Golo Kante could return after missing out on a Premier League appearance for a third time this season. "A lot of players are hungry to win that as well". Conte was courageous enough to switch to 3-4-3 and Chelsea never looked back as he got the best out of players who needed a new motivator and master tactician to get them firing on all cylinders - and someone who could inject an all-for-one mentality. I think if you can continue with these players, you can improve a lot.

Whatever competition you're in, especially at this club, with the team we've got, we're looking to win it. I leave Highbury (Arsenal's old ground), they were crying.

"It wasn't easy for me to arrive in England and try different habits, a different language and inherit players after a bad season", Conte said.

Thibaut Courtois says that winning the Premier League with Chelsea is an "amazing" feeling, particularly on the back of last season's disappointing campaign. "This is awesome, especially after past year", said the Belgian goalkeeper.

Even as he nursed a thick lip and lamented his sodden suit amid the mayhem of Chelsea's Premier League title celebrations, Antonio Conte was already targeting his next trophy bid. People laugh and people get criticised - it's not nice after a season when you won the league. "But we have bounced back, winning the title again, and that's incredible". "In my mind there was this option to play a 3-4-3 because I knew I had the players to do that", Conte said. We know West Brom are a hard team to play against - we had a very tough game here (1-0 win at Stamford Bridge in December). "Everybody here is used to playing for trophies and a year ago that was not the case. We came back this season and did well". It means I trust my squad and this season we have had three competitions - league, FA Cup and Capital One Cup.

"We have started to do our work".
