Michy Batshuayi was the hero as he scored late on to give Chelsea a priceless 1-0 win at West Bromwich Albion and secure their fifth Premier League title.

The Blues went in to the game seven points ahead of second-placed Tottenham with three games to play so they knew a win would be enough to wrap-up the trophy.

Chelsea dominated from the outset but couldn’t turn their possession in to clear cut chances and the two sides went in to the break level at 0-0.

Antonio Conte’s men continued to push after the break and they eventually found the breakthrough they were waiting for it the goal came from a relatively unlikely source.
