Some other great coaches have also won the EPL title for their club in their first season.

Chelsea close out their season with visits of Watford and Sunderland to Stamford Bridge before facing London rivals Arsenal in the FA Cup final on May 27.

"Obviously after previous year, when we had a moment when we were 16th in the league, people laughed".

How do you balance all those aims and walk away with a win after the massive high of Friday night?

The Italian has said he wants to remain at Stamford Bridge after lifting the Premier League title in his first season in charge, despite reports in Italy that Inter Milan want to take him home. "Every team, even if they win, will try to improve and I'm sure that Chelsea will try to do that". "It's a great squad of players they've got there but maybe there will be a freshening up, don't lose your best players and add one or two at the top end to go into the [UEFA] Champions League".

"We've worked together only for nine months and I think if you continue with these players you can improve a lot now they know my ideas".

They were a combined 0 for 10 from the field in the first half, with their only points coming on a pair of Thomas free throws. Mighty as they've been in the playoffs, the Cavs were mildly disrespected by the team Boston beat to reach the East finals.

"I think Conte has adapted to the Premier League quicker and has gone and changed", he said on Sky Sports. He is the boss, he has driven them from 10th previous year to make them champions and in the end it has been pretty comfortable. Former players were among those who hailed Chelsea's accomplishment.

Chelsea, as so often this season, found a way to win as substitute Cesc Fabregas struck from the edge of the area with three minutes left.

Diego Costa and David Luiz barged into Antonio Conte's post-match presser to return him to Chelsea's title celebration.

"After the defeats early in the season, we started this incredible run and then we realised that we could win it this season". Sometimes we play well, but concede a goal and then it's hard to get back in the game.

"He has also a very strong management team, with his coaches and Steve Holland".

It culminates a remarkable comeback from Chelsea, who floundered in the last EPL season 2015-16 to finish 10th after winning the 2014-15 title under Jose Mourinho.
