Conte's tactical coup makes Chelsea click again

Conte's tactical coup makes Chelsea click again

Conte and his players were wreathed in smiles and soaked in champagne after clinching the title with a 1-0 win at West Bromwich Albion on Friday.

The Gunners should not be too disillusioned with the possibility of missing out on this one occasion however, much in the way that a year outside the coveted European competition has allowed Chelsea to get back to winning ways.

I think this achievement is a great achievement for the players, for my players. "It is my first Premier League title", Chelsea defender Luiz, who has been a defensive rock since returning to the club this season after two years in Paris, said.

Conte's players were tuned in to such an extent that they seized control of the title race by equalling a single-season top-flight record with 13 successive victories.

Credit most go to Conte for his bravery in taking of the brilliant Hazard and bringing on the striker, in their search for the winning finish.

Yet when the Italian drove into Chelsea's palatial training base in the leafy village of Cobham for the first time last July, he was in no mood to soak up the tranquil surroundings.

"And I wanted to give more energy with Michy and Willian".

The Italian, victor of three Serie A titles as Juventus manager, has transformed Chelsea from flops to champions in one season with largely the same group of players.

"In my mind there was this option to play a 3-4-3 because I knew I had the players to do that".

"The players showed a desire to accomplish something great".

The bewitching Hazard once again looks the player who inspired Chelsea to the title in 2015 and Diego Costa has got his edge back, chipping in with 20 league goals.

"It was probably more comfortable last time but the run-in is always the same, there is always a stage in the season when it's going to be tight, when teams are putting pressure on and you're having to win", he said.

Conte is the only manager in the top flight this term to use all three permitted substitutes in every league game.

The Italian was injured in the celebrations and he said: "In those moments anything can happen".

"They're the best team in the land this year".

"It's the best moment in my football career", Batshuayi said after the match, according to Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur. After this win we must be happy, we must be pleased.

Cahill's mishit shot was so badly struck that it spun out to the right wing, where Cesar Azpilicueta collected the ball and got to the byline before sending in a low cross. We had to change and find a new suit for our team.
