Chelsea needed a win against Sunderland to set a new record for the number of wins in a Premier League season in their final game against Sunderland, and Antonio Conte’s men did just that with a 5-1 win against David Moyes Sunderland.

The Black Cats wanted to spoil the party with an early goal from Javi Manquillo in the third minute, but the Blues scored five to get the win.

Jose Mourinho’s team held the record with Chelsea after he guided the team to 29 victories in both the 2004-05 and 2005-06 campaigns.

Chelsea didn’t just end the season with the title, but a record of 30 wins in the Premier League.

It wasn’t just Chelsea, Thibaut Courtois also ended the season with the Golden Glove, after keeping 16 clean sheets this season, and John Terry is the first man to lift the Premier League five times as a player.

Antonio Conte was conscious of these and said before the game that he wanted the team to set the record and Courtois to get the Golden Glove.

“It’s important to finish this season to be focused, to be concentrated on our target,” said the Chelsea manager.

“Now we’ve reached an important target to win the league, now on Sunday we have two targets and to try to win the 30 games in this league, I think it’s an unbelievable target.

“And to help Thibaut to win the golden glove, we have these two targets on Sunday, and to prepare in the right way for the FA Cup final against Arsenal.

“I think every single player, the coach and the manager, we have time to discuss with our club.

“Now it’s very important to be focused on these targets, these targets are more important than a single person.

“I repeat, we have a big chance after an incredible season to reach incredible targets and we must try to do this.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
