Cahill eager to get Chelsea title party started

12 May, 2017, 03:45 | Author: Ruben Patrick

A win for Chelsea against the Baggies will see them clinch the league title, their second in the last three seasons.

The Blues won the 2014-15 title under the former Real Madrid manager but he was sacked for a second time at Stamford Bridge just seven months later and Chelsea finished tenth as Leicester claimed a surprise crown.

However, Conte, after a hard first couple of months, has rejuvenated the side and will complete a full circle if they beat West Brom on Friday night to reclaim the Premier League title. Here's a look at how some of the Blues' key performers in the victory over Boro - namely Alonso, Azpilicueta and Pedro - reacted to the huge win on Twitter...

Despondent Middlesbrough head coach Steve Agnew revealed the team's dressing room was "devastated" after the 3-0 defeat at Chelsea confirmed their relegation.

With Antonio Conte's attention to detail, you would think the Italian manager would be keen to wrap things up at West Brom before resting players against Watford on Monday.

"The fans didn't stop singing, wherever we've been this season they've been the same". I've left a very silent dressing room with everyone, staff and players, absolutely gutted.

Can Chelsea win the English Premier League in this game? They've been the most consistent team in the league this year and they come to our place with a chance of winning it.

"We will give it our best tomorrow".

Conte has called on his players to maintain their focus and win the title at the first opportunity, on Friday at The Hawthorns.

"We can't just roll over and let them get the result they need to win the league". We've not won enough games or scored enough goals. We owe it to our supporters and we have our own targets to hit.

"We have to gain more points to finish strongly, then everything moving forward will be aimed at getting back into the Premier League as soon as possible".
