Chelsea clinch title with victory over Palace

chelseChelsea have won the Premier League title with three games to spare.

A 1-0 win over Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on Sunday was enough to secure Jose Mourinho’s men’s first title since 2010.

Fittingly, PFA Player of the Year Eden Hazard scored the goal that assured the Blues would add the league title to the Capital One Cup they won in March.

It is the fourth time Chelsea have won the Premier League since 2005, and their fifth top division triumph in the club’s history.

Chelsea have been criticised over recent weeks for not being entertaining, but Mourinho hit back at his side’s critics after wrapping up the title on Sunday:

“We do everything that the team needs. That’s why we deserve so much to be champions. And I think everybody knows that. jose

“And the ones that have a big face to say we don’t deserve are the ones that in my country we say ‘the dogs bark and the caravan goes by’. It’s easy is to be a pundit, because as a pundit you win every game.”

“When you go back to a place where you had success before you risk a little bit your prestige, your history. I risked it. Now I can say I won titles for Chelsea with two different generations, separated by almost a decade.”

Captain John Terry also took a swipe at critics – in particular Rafael Benitez, Chelsea’s former interim manager; “One person said I couldn’t play twice in a week,” the former England captain said. “He knows who he is. I have proved him wrong as I’m still fighting, still in the side and feeling great.”

Other members of the squad took to Twitter to celebrate winning the league. Match winner Hazard simply tweeted ‘Champioooonnnnnnnnnn 🎉🎉🎉🏆🏆🏆⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️,’ while Gary Cahill tweeted ‘We did it! Champions! Huge thanks to everyone at CFC & especially my family for help making this dream come true.’

Chelsea will play Liverpool and Sunderland at home and West Brom away in their last three games of the season.
