Chelsea clinch title as Eden Hazard seals win over Crystal Palace

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

The trophy will be presented only on the last day of the season, but

Chelsea won their fifth English Premier League crown on Sunday after a

1-0 win against Crystal Palace.

Eden Hazard dived to head home the title-winning penalty after having

his initial kick saved at the Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea started slowly and it was Crystal Palace who seemed the most

intent on attacking in the early stages, but nevertheless the Blues

controlled the ball for most of the first half.

The home side still created the most chances, Juan Cuadrado firing

over early in the first half.

Chelsea took the lead when Hazard dived into James McArthur into the

box to win a penalty, and then headed in his own missed attempt from

the spot kick. In the second half, Jose Mourinho provoked the critics

by immediately removing Cuadrado for the much more defensive John Obi

Mikel, and Chelsea set about dominating possession but doing little

with it.

Branislav Ivanovic went closest for Chelsea towards the end of the

half, but Chelsea were happy to take the single-goal victory to seal

the title.

The Blues have won the title with three games to spare.
