Chelsea 1-0 Crystal Palace: Blues clinch Premier League title

Chelsea were crowned Premier League champions for the fourth time after securing an edgy 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday.

After coming from behind to beat Leicester City 3-1 in midweek, Jose Mourinho’s side knew that three points at Stamford Bridge would secure a first title since 2010.

Palace manager Alan Pardew – who masterminded one of Chelsea’s two top-flight defeats this term while in charge of Newcastle United – urged his team to make Mourinho and co wait to pop the champagne corks.

And the visitors put in a spirited display throughout, but were undermined when James McArthur felled Eden Hazard in the penalty area on the stroke of half-time.

Hazard saw the resulting spot-kick saved by Julian Speroni before nodding home the rebound, and it was fitting that the PFA Player of the Year – so instrumental in Chelsea’s success this season – should get the goal that earned Mourinho his third Premier League crown.
