Last night Chelsea was crowned EPL Champions with a 1-0 win over West Brom.
Chelsea’s evening appeared destined for frustration as they could not convert domination into goals against dogged opponents but Batshuayi’s 82nd-minute strike ended the resistance.
The hosts spent most of the match in their own half as Chelsea laid siege to their goal with Gary Cahill, Cesc Fabregas, and Pedro coming close and Ben Foster’s fingertip save denying Victor Moses after the interval.
As the match wore on West Brom might have shocked Antonio Conte’s men on the counter-attack but Salomon Rondon and Nacer Chadli missed opportunities.
With eight minutes left Cesar Azpilicueta kept a wayward shot alive and picked out substitute Batshuayi for his first league goal since 20 August and the most memorable of his Chelsea career.
Everton defeated Watford 1-0 in other action last night.
The win will keep the Toffees in seventh place.
Everton has 61 points with one match left in the season.
