After being top for what seems the whole season, Chelsea have finally secured the Premier League title with a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have had many complaints about not being given penalties this season, but they were awarded one here.
Usually Mr. Reliable, Eden Hazard stepped up, but his poor penalty was saved, the rebound, however, did come right back to him for him to head home.
It’s been a long, arduous season for Mourinho and his players, but they will be relieved to finally know they have the title secured. Emotion spilled out on the pitch.
Captain John Terry spoke after the game and expressed his delight of this achievement, also mentioning the fact the he was a mascot and he has also painted the ground. He paid tribute to Rio Ferdinand after his wife passed away with cancer just a few days ago.
There are still three games to play in the league this season, so if Chelsea want to end the campaign with just 2 losses, they will have to overcome Liverpool, West Brom and finally Sunderland.
That is Jose Mourinho’s third Premier League title with Chelsea, he won it back in the 2004-05 season and in the following 2005-06 season. This is his eighth trophy with Chelsea; The Portuguese manager, who has formerly managed teams such as Inter Milan and Real Madrid has won 3 Barclays Premier League Titles, one FA Cup, three League Cups and one Community Shield trophy.
He has had an illustrious career and at 52-years old, it is interesting to see what he is going to do next.
Chelsea will receive a guard of honour in their next match from the Liverpool players and staff.
