Goal.com logo Goal.com 12-05-2017

Chelsea won the Premier League title on Friday, with Michy Batshuayi playing the role of hero as the Belgian struck the game's only goal to give the Blues a 1-0 win over West Brom.

It didn't take long for fans and pundits alike to take to Twitter to show their jubilation, with Batshuayi's second-half goal flooding the popular social media site within seconds.

What a story. Michy Batshuayi overlooked all season, and gives Antonio Conte the title. Football is a beautiful game.
