Chelsea end their trophy drought as they win their 4th Premier League title and 3rd under Jose Mourinho. Chelsea had to get a win today against Crystal Palace to ensure they seal the title with 3 games to go.
Chelsea went about the task in their typical stellar approach by being very assured defensively and playing on the counter. Many people have called this tactic as a boring one from Jose Mourinho’s team.
All of that took a second stance when Eden Hazard bamboozled Palace’s defense to win the penalty and then stepped up to take the kick as well. Initially, Hazard’s shot was saved by Speroni but the newly crowned PFA player of the year headed home on the rebound.
The goal was sent the entire Stamford Bridge in to frenzy as Chelsea confirm their title victory at home in front of their own sets of fans. The entire second half was filled with a joyful wait as Chelsea players played the longest 45 minutes of their career only to explode in to sheer delight at the final whistle.
Scenes were crazy on and off the pitch for the Chelsea players. We are bringing some of the best images from Chelsea’s title winning moments from the pitch and inside the dressing room.
