After committing to one more season, Terry admits that he is delighted to leave the club while they are top of the league.

"I'm so proud of this team and all the players and management for all the hard work, effort and sacrifices everyone has made this season".

The line-up included Michy Batshuayi, who scored the title-winning goal against the Baggies and veteran Chelsea captain John Kerry, playing his final season at Stamford Bridge.

"The nice thing in England is teams never give up until it is finished".

Win ratio - An incredible figure of 77.8% this term dwarfs the 31.6% under Jose Mourinho and Guus Hiddink.

The Dutchman added: "The dressing room was quiet, too quiet, people avoiding each other a bit".

Substitute Stefano Okaka, who was given his Italy debut by Chelsea boss Conte when he was in charge of the national side, took advantage of defensive uncertainty to equalise.

"Now it's a confirmation of his attitude, his professionalism, plus, of course, his energy, which he's putting in the team", Hiddink said.

Chelsea have secured the Premier League title with a late victor over West Bromwich Albion.

While Chelsea are preparing for a party atmosphere in front of their fans, Mazzarri must lift his players to make sure they avoid the campaign fading out now they have secured top-flight status once again.

He said: "We started to do our work".

"We are working (for) only nine months together".

And midfielder N'Golo Kante could return after missing out on a Premier League appearance for a third time this season. I think if you can continue with these players, you can improve a lot.

"He had all week to drill into his players and that's what you heard from them".

"The club want to fight to win every competition".

"We are underrated a bit, and we might slip under the radar", Conte said when he first took over.
