Countdown to the victory

Chelsea have been on remarkable form this season and the manager attributes the English Premier League success to commitment, team spirit, hard work and resilience exhibited by his players. Notable is the comeback game changer they made after losing 3-0 to Arsenal last September. Antonio Conte says the loss played a "pivotal role" in their season, as he was forced to change tactics to a three-man defense and went ahead to enjoy a winning streak of 13 straight matches, to come from a distant eighth position to now sitting 10 points clear of their closest competitors, Tottenham Hotspur F.C., and with two remaining spare games.

30-year-old superstar footballer Cesc Fabregas said the win was very satisfying, being his second league title with The Blues. The English Premier League is no doubt the most competitive and challenging and the taste of success from winning such a race is mighty and revitalizing. It was a villain to hero story for the star of the night, Michy Batshuayi, who was resigned from PSG and didn't look promising but went ahead to have an incredible season and net the league winner. He thanks manager Antonio Conte for his outstanding work ethic that led to the realization of his long time dream, that of winning the English Premier League.
