Chelsea are now Champions of England, after a difficult 1-0 win at the Hawthorns.

The Blues suffered and toiled for the win, and a late goal from Michy Batshuayi gave Chelsea the deserved three points.

See how the players fared:

Courtois: He was firm, solid and kept his concentration in what was a very difficult game. 8/10

Azpilicueta: Was solid at the back and made an important run to save Chelsea from a counterattack led by Salomon Rondon. Also created the goal for Batshuayi. 8/10

Luiz: Had to deal with a very tough Rondon tonight, and he held his ground well. 7.5/10

Cahill: Was a vocal presence in the Chelsea defence, and worked hard for the team to keep a clean sheet. 7.5/10

Matic: Did his bit in midfield, and his job today was more difficult as the Baggies were bent on sitting deep and hitting Chelsea on the break. 7/10

Fabregas: Sat in the midfield and orchestrated play from deep, but there was little space for him to get the balls behind the defence. 8/10

Moses: Was a constant threat on the right flank and caused James McClean all sorts of problems. 8/10

Alonso: Was a constant outlet on the left flank, although West Brom’s deep defence cut short his usual attacking plays. 7.5/10

Hazard: Didn’t have enough influence on the game as he would have liked due to West Brom’s game plan, but his runs won the team many free-kicks. 7/10

Pedro: Toiled and toiled, but lacked the space to cause any real damage. A good game nevertheless. 7.5/10

Costa: Had a couple of half chances to win the game for Chelsea, but West Brom’s deep defending made it really difficult. Was lively all the same. 7/10


Willian: Replaced Hazard with just under 20 minutes left; looked lively but didn’t have any real chance to cause harm. 7/10

Batshuayi: Came on for Pedro in the last quarter of the game, and he scored the match winner that sealed the win and title for Chelsea. 8/10

Zouma: Came on to replace Victor Moses in the last five minutes of the game.

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.
