Chelsea are the new Premier League champions after beating West Bromwich Albion 1-0 at The Hawthorns.

Forgotten
man Michy
Batshuayi
was the
unlikely
goalscoring hero as The
Blues snatched a late victory
over The Baggies.
West Bromwich Albion
started the match well and
Salomon Rondon’s looping
header troubled Blues
keeper Thibaut Courtois early
on.
Pedro went close early in the
match on three occasions
while defenders Gary Cahill
and Cesar Azpilicueta also
saw efforts go just wide.
The Blues
were
inches
away from
taking the
lead 20
minutes
into the
contest but Cahill’s fizzing
effort was bravely blocked by
Gareth McAuley.
Cesc Fabregas struck another
Chelsea effort wide as the
first half ended goalless with
very few clear goalscoring
chances being produced.
The second half started with
Pedro again worrying home
keeper Ben Foster but the
player saw another shot go
wide while Diego Costa
struggled to get off a shot as
he was tightly marked by the
home defence. Moses then
forced a superb low save
from Foster with a strike
across goal before Fabregas
went agonisingly close to
opening the scoring on two
occasions.
Chelsea had a real scare with
a little over 15 minutes
remaining when Rondon beat
The Blues defence before
firing high and wide after a
45 yard run on goal. Albion
continued to search for a
goal which would upset the
party and Nacer Chadli
clipped a chance wide as
Chelsea rode their luck.
With just eight minutes
remaining on the clock,
Chelsea finally broke the
deadlock when Azpilicueta
cut the ball back to
substitute Batshuayi who
beat Foster from six yards.
There was no response from
West Bromwich Albion and
Batshuayi proved to be the
unlikely hero as Chelsea
went on to become Premier
League champions.
