Moses Wins First EPL Title With Chelsea

Moses Wins First EPL Title With Chelsea

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.

There were some key results at key times in Chelsea's title-winning campaign: The 4-0 win in mid-October over a Manchester United side led by former Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho, three games after Conte's conversion to a 3-4-3; the 5-0 win over Everton on November 5 that was perhaps Chelsea's best all-round display of the season; the 2-1 win over Man City that was ground out on April 5, showing Chelsea can beat a major opponent when not at its best; and the 3-0 win against Everton at fortress Goodison Park in late April, just when second-place Tottenham had closed to within four points, that allowed Conte's side to freewheel to the title.

Friday's victory at The Hawthorns marks what Chelsea hope will be the first leg of a double, with the FA Cup final against Arsenal at Wembley still to come on May 27. Ultimately, the win over United showed people the brilliance of Conte's 3-4-3 formation and the way his players ran it.

"The beauty of football: a player who didn't play a lot scores the winning goal for the championship". "I am very happy because my dream came true". "For sure this is a dream".

Six minutes into his 19th appearance off the bench this season, Batshuayi steered home a low cross from Cesar Azpilicueta for just his second Premier League goal, and also one of the most historic in the team's long history.

He was then dragged out of his post-match media conference by celebrating players David Luiz and Diego Costa, but not before pinpointing the key moment in his side's season.

The revolution really gathered pace once Conte responded to lacklustre defeats against Liverpool and Arsenal in September by switching to his preferred three-man defensive system. "They had a poor start, and Conte had to change things", he said. When you arrive after a bad season when the team were 10th, there is not only one problem.

They are also in the process of recruiting a new technical staff which features several of his trusted former colleagues. "I want to thank the club because they had faith in me and to repay the club is very important".

Eden Hazard had another effort blocked on the line but as Chelsea strained for the victor they began to look a little vulnerable at the back as West Brom gained in confidence.

Chelsea have found massive success under manager Antonio Conte this season. "We wanted to make it hard for them". The game is best remembered for Jordan Henderson's rocket which leaves many home fans wondering whether pre-season optimism had been misplaced. He has played as both a wing back and full back on both sides, as well as adapting brilliantly to being a right sided centre-back in Conte's three man defence.
