Antonio Conte has led the Stamford Bridge side to glory with two matches to spare - the sixth time that the Blues have been crowned English champions
A late goal from substitute Michy Batshuayi gave the Blues three points, which mean they hold an unassailable 10-point advantage over Tottenham.
It is the sixth time that the Stamford Bridge side have won England’s top flight and the fourth time since 2004-05 that they have claimed the Premier League title.
Their campaign has been one of virtual unabated excellence since a sticky period in September, when they lost successive matches against Liverpool and Arsenal saw them drop as far as eighth.
Manager Antonio Conte, who arrived in the summer to guide the team after a disappointing 2015-16 season, thereafter altered his side to play with three at the back, and that proved the catalyst for a 13-match winning streak that proved to be the decisive run as they claimed the crown.

Sitting under the shower with my head buried in between my legs as my hands held my legs firmly and the cold water from the shower washed my skin, I got lost in thought with a smile only my face.

I was still lost in my triumph thought when his soft hands grabbed me I jumped but relaxed the moment I smelled him, I know I'm in safe hands so there's nothing to fear, he's my husband after all. I cozied up to him more and the tiny drops of the water continued to fall on us.
