The Blues won the Premier League after a 1-0 victory over West Brom on Friday, and Twitter was flooded with reactions within seconds
Chelsea won the Premier League title on Friday, with Michy Batshuayi playing the role of hero as the Belgian struck the game’s only goal to give the Blues a 1-0 win over West Brom.
It didn’t take long for fans and pundits alike to take to Twitter to show their jubilation, with Batshuayi’s second-half goal flooding the popular social media site within seconds.
What a story. Michy Batshuayi overlooked all season, and gives Antonio Conte the title. Football is a beautiful game.

Conte>Mourinho in every conceivable way. Classy, passionate, clever and tactically brilliant. Hard to hate Chelsea this year.
