Chelsea beat West Brom, win Premier League Title

Chelsea are unofficially the Premier League champions after beating West Bromwich Albion 1-0 at the Hawthorns on Friday to move 10 points clear of their closest challengers Tottenham Hotspurs.          
Late substitute Michy Batshuayi poked home an 83rd-minute winner to snatch a fifth Premier League title for the Blues with only his second goal for the campaign.

Second-placed Tottenham Hotspur can no longer hope to chase down the Blues’ unassailable lead, and Chelsea manager Antonio Conte stormed to a maiden Premier League triumph in his first season in English football.

Friday’s result brings to an end Tottenham’s glancing hope of staging a late run at the Premier League crown, and the north Londoners will less likely be motivated to prove their credentials against Manchester United on Sunday at White Hart Lane.

For Chelsea, meanwhile, the remaining fixtures against Watford and Sunderland become only a formality.

The West London outfit have in the 36 matches played won an impressive 28 drawing 3 and losing 5.
