Chelsea are Premier League champions: Antonio Conte targets Double

Chelsea are Premier League champions: Antonio Conte targets Double

Chelsea beat West Brom 1-0 at the Hawthorns thanks to a late strike from Batshuayi, his first league goal since 20th August, to claim the Premier League title for the Blues.

"I'm so proud of this team and all the players and management for all the hard work, effort and sacrifices everyone has made this season".

Though Chelsea will undoubtedly be able to attract some of the biggest stars in world football, their struggles may come through keeping hold of the likes of Diego Costa, Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard.

This is a heartbreak for Tottenham players as they were in superb form this season and were eyeing on the title but only to be denied by Chelsea. "We won this title together".

Stefano Okaka knows his side will be up against it at a partying Stamford Bridge, but he is hopeful his side can exploit any groggy heads in the Chelsea ranks. We've won the title but that doesn't mean that the team can not get better.

But, having secured Premier League glory this time around, Antonio Conte's side will play against Europe's elite in 2017-18. "I found the strength to change, to take responsibility to change systems and find a new fit for the players", he said.

"We have two games to celebrate, then we try to make this season from great to fantastic". "Against Arsenal the game was frustrating for me because I didn't see anything of my work, of my idea of football", said the 47-year-old, who described his suit as a "disaster" after he was soaked by his players.

Arsene Wenger not giving up on top-four spot
If Arsenal do miss out on the Champions League, Wenger has already pin-pointed the cause: a series of damaging away defeats. Despite having over 30 attempts on goal, it was a flat atmosphere in north London , with a number of empty seats visible.

For a club that can be toxic and leaky, there have been few flashpoints this season in the first year under Conte.

Watford is already sure off its Premier League status heading into Sunday's final game against Liverpool. Even in a moment of celebration and fun, Conte instantly got focused when talking about the mechanics of the sport.

Pass and shot accuracy - Both of these figures have seen a small increase of 1%, though have this season stuck far closer to the mean in comparison to the erratic displays of 2015/16.

"I know them, I know the characteristics of my players and we can improve".

It would not be wrong to say that Chelsea deserved to lift the title this season.

"From that moment Chelsea became the champions-elect if you like, because then, automatically, everything dropped into place and all of a sudden they were one".

But, they have to keep their feet on the ground as they will be up against Arsenal in the FA cup final soon.
