With Chelsea officially crowned as Premier League champions, the FC panel look at Antonio Conte's stellar team management.

Eden Hazard has warned his Chelsea teammates they can not afford to repeat the mistakes of their last title defence under Jose Mourinho.

The 26-year-old Hazard hinted "motivation" and "fitness" may have played a part in the club's slump but the former Lille winger is determined to learn from the experience.

He said: "That's football". Then we continued to work very hard, but "very hard" is easy to say.

"We need to be ready every year in the same level to be on the top".

Eden Hazard made it 2-1 with a classic low shot into the bottom corner, Pedro scored a third goal with a header in the 77th and Michy Batshuayi added two late goals before officials wheeled on a mobile stage for the trophy presentation.

Dominic Thiem, who is an excellent clay court player and has been playing great tennis, got rolled by Nadal when they've played. Former Austria's Thomas Moster, the former World No. 1, is next on the list with 40 career titles on clay-court tournaments.

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante has been named the Premier League Player of the Season.

Chelsea finish their league campaign at home against Sunderland on Sunday but Hazard insists there won't be any lengthy celebrations with the FA Cup final against Arsenal just a week away.

"Even in the dressing room, it was good to see the smile on faces".

Kante was a key component of Leicester City's shock title win last season and has been a driving force behind Chelsea's triumph in 2016-17. We won a lot of games. In an interview with SoccerAM's "Tubes", Clement admits that while he will pursue him in the Summer and have a discussion, he's not convinced that it's a transfer we'd be able to pull off: 'First of all, I like John a lot.

Ashley Cole was the other one we used to play with'.
