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

Chelsea’s crazy Premier League title celebrations

Chelsea’s crazy Premier League title celebrations

The popular Italian was the first to get the "bumps" — the celebratory ritual so common in England these days where a person is thrown in the air and caught by his club colleagues — after Chelsea's 1-0 win at West Bromwich Albion on Friday evening that clinched the title.

Antonio Conte faces another challenge in the final two home games for Premier League winners Chelsea - balancing sentiment with planning for the FA Cup final.

Michy Batshuayi, the summer-signed striker who has waited patiently for action this season, rose from the substitutes' bench to write his name in Chelsea history by scoring the goal which won our sixth league championship. "We have the same ambition", Conte said. "And we can improve". "The togetherness we've shown from day one, to come back and regroup after defeats to Arsenal and Liverpool and to then go on that winning streak was phenomenal".

"We've worked together only for nine months and I think if you continue with these players you can improve a lot now they know my ideas. And we can improve".

The Manchester United boss was the first manager to win the Premeir League title in his first season in charge of the club. After the Arsenal game [in September] when we lost 3-0 we were in a bad moment again, but we bounced back.

Conte kept his composure during a huddle with journalists as Costa lurked menacingly, threatening to put a dampener on celebrations by jokingly brandishing a fire extinguisher.

That drama seems but a distant memory now, after Costa and David Luiz invaded the Chelsea manager's post-match press conference at the Hawthorns in a bid to kidnap the Italian. "Gary Cahill, maybe he'll step up even more now, but John Terry is so important for this club".

It culminates a remarkable comeback from Chelsea, who floundered in the last EPL season 2015-16 to finish 10th after winning the 2014-15 title under Jose Mourinho. He is the boss, he has driven them from 10th previous year to make them champions and in the end it has been pretty comfortable.

"They're an fantastic team and you can only see them getting stronger".

The 28th victory of the season gave the Antonio Conte-led side three points, which mean they hold an unassailable 10-point advantage over Tottenham.

But his first Premier League goal since August being the decisive one in the title pursuit will have boosted that.
