Chelsea celebrate title with 4-3 romp against Watford

The Blues were recently confirmed as champions and will receive their title at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea had potentially three bites of the cherry with Tottenham crossing everything in the hope of a slip-up but it was probably no shock to see them get the job done at the first time of asking with a gritty display at West Brom.

It does help having a £25m-rated worldwide striker on the bench to call on for a change of pace but Conte's first season has been a triumph after taking control last autumn and they have to be applauded.

It was not meant to be for Watford, however, as Fabregas sealed the win for Antonio Conte's men with a sublime finish following an assist from Willian.

But that was only one low point in an entertaining and committed performance from 16th-placed Watford, who never gave up despite having little to play for with just one game at home to Manchester City to go next weekend. An absolutely abysmal run on their travels now stands at one top-flight win in 14 with six successive recent reverses all coming without troubling the scorekeeper.

"It depends, if the right offer comes along I will sit down and consider it with my family - whether that's here, abroad, or wherever that may be".

From Willian's right-wing corner, Kurt Zouma headed the ball against Terry, who reacted sharply to hook the ball in off the left-hand post for his first goal since January a year ago.

I don't expect Hazard to snub Real Madrid for Chelsea stay - Murphy
Hazard has enjoyed another impressive season with the new Premier League champions, scoring 15 goals and contributing five assists.

Watford's 1-0 win in 1999 is the Hornets' only win over the Blues in their last 16 meetings in all competitions (D5 L10).

Two minutes later, Janmaat looked to instigate a one-two with M'Baye Niang on the Watford left and when the ball came back to him off Zouma, he burrowed into the box, stepped inside Ake and finished with aplomb. The defender has scored in 17 consecutive Premier League seasons.

"Genuinely I haven't made any decisions of yet and I'm evaluating all my options at the moment". Chelsea last won the domestic double in the 2009-10 season under former manager Carlo Ancelotti.

Though the Premier League trophy presentation will not take place until the final day of the season, when Chelsea host Sunderland, there will no doubt be a party atmosphere at the Bridge on Monday evening.

Making his first Premier League start of the season, the striker whose goal clinched the title on Friday was probably the pick of the bunch at Stamford Bridge and helped himself to another goal as he bids to prove he has a future at the club.
