Chelsea EPL winners for the fourth time
End 5 year EPL title drought
Chelsea are crowned Barclays Premier League champions for the fourth time thanks to an edgy victory over Crystal Palace. It is a determined defensive display coupled by a winning goal by PFA Player of the Year Hazard that secures the win. Although the visitors put in a spirited display, they are undermined when James McArthur fouls Hazard in the penalty area on the stroke of half-time and the Belgium forward heads in his 14th BPL goal of the season on the rebound after Julian Speroni’s save from his initial spot-kick.
Crowned Champions with 3 games to spare
