Chelsea's Premier League winners: Who makes combined 04-05 & 16-17 XI?

Chelsea's Premier League winners: Who makes combined 04-05 & 16-17 XI?

Chelsea have now won five Premier League titles since Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich bought the club in 2003, but this one is arguably the most impressive considering they finished a woeful 10th last season.

"Then it's important to prepare in the right way next season".

Arsenal were leading the division less than a week ago but a loss at Chelsea saw the Gunners miss out on the league title. A 13-match winning streak followed, and they are now 10 points clear of their nearest challengers with two games remaining. "There are still two league games to go, so let's rest a bit and prepare ourselves", said the Brazilian centre-back. Still, the modern game makes one-club players exceedingly rare, and footballers end up carrying emotional ties to several teams and their fanbases over the course of their career.

Continental football returns next season and Conte needs to prioritize that.

"I think it was the key moment for us".

"They wet me after the celebrations with the fans, they poured champagne and beer over me so I had to change my clothes, my suit is a disaster now".

He revealed he had cut his lip as he celebrated Batshuayi's victor, but that it was not the first time he had been injured as a result of his joyful exuberance. "I'm not sure if this was a header or a punch but I am ready to repeat this".

Antonio Conte was fielding a question in his post-match news conference when David Luiz and Diego Costa appeared from out of nowhere, barged past a couple of reporters and dragged their manager out of his chair and out of the room.




The 25-year-old continued: "Winning in the end 1-0, a goal from Michy, from a guy who has had a tough season, didn't play much and he scored the final goal..."

"We are very close and we must be honest about this, but we need to do another little step and win another game".

"We deserved it over the season". "Then, through hard work, he improved a lot".

"After my story at Leicester, this wonderful adventure at Chelsea was not easy at the first attempt, but Conte has passed the test of English football with flying colours".

"I've never seen a team win the Premier League without strength and power". This is a dream that has come true.

Conte's passion and work ethic is clearly infectious.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis paid tribute and said: "You have to give Chelsea, Antonio and all his coaching staff the credit".

"It's good. It's the best day for Chelsea today", said Batshuayi, who arrived from Marseille previous year in a £33.2 million ($42.8 million, 39.1 million euros) transfer.
