Ranieri proud to pass Premier League title to Chelsea's Conte

"Guys, champions! Enough, enough!"

Conte deployed a back three for the first time in the following game at Hull, which Chelsea won 2-0 and they never looked back as they marched on to winning their sixth top division title.

"Could their final away game be one last spoke in the wheels though?"

Michy Batshuayi's late goal gave the Londoners a hard-fought 1-0 win against West Bromwich Albion on Friday night and a 10-point lead from Tottenham Hotspur, who can no longer overtake them as they have just three matches to play.

Hiddink did not wish to dwell on what had happened under Mourinho when he returned to Chelsea, but can see how Conte has transformed what was a dysfunctional unit. This huge defeat saw Conte revert back to his old formation in the 3-4-3. Then, Costa was among the players dousing Conte in champagne and beer.

"Yes I can", Responded Conte to being asked if he could 100% guarantee that he will still be at Chelsea next year.

"We're disappointed we didn't get something out of the last (home) game of the season and it would have been deserved if we had done that".

He achieved this success with Chelsea in 2004/05 season when he moved to club from Porto.

"Obviously, previous year we had a lot of critics, a lot of laughter at us".

Arsenal's most recent title came prior to that run, in 2003-04, while Spurs, who are set to finish as runners-up, won the last of their two championships in 1960-61. In Spain, you go to other places, relegation teams, and it's not as hard. I think that we have also another target to try to reach because we worked very hard to reach the final of the FA Cup and then it's important to prepare in the right way for next season. It's great for me in my first season.

Chelsea defender David Luiz accepted he would be a "liar" to say he was ignoring the prospect of winning a Premier League and FA Cup "Double" with the Blues. They said we didn't want to play anymore, they said we were lazy, that kind of stuff, and it's not true. "For this I want to thank my players because they trusted in new work and a new philosophy".

"Michy hasn't played as much football as he would want but to score the victor is great for him".

Terry was an unused substitute at West Brom and has not started in the Premier League since the September 11 draw with Swansea.

He left the club when his contract expired last summer.
