Chelsea travel to West Brom on Friday knowing a victory at the Hawthorns will make Chelsea champions for the 2016/17 season.
Chelsea legend Pat Nevin believes some fans would have preferred to see Chelsea clinch the title at Stamford Bridge but he feels it is more important to just get the job done as soon as possible.
“The consideration now is of course trying to get the league won as quickly as possible,” Nevin wrote in Chelsea’s official site.
“I have heard it said that a draw against West Brom on Friday and winning the title back at the Bridge would be the preferred option but that will not be the feeling within the camp.
“You just want it won as soon as possible to relieve any residual pressure.
“It is also good to give the manager the option of resting players before the cup final if he can and if he wants to.”
