Chelsea congratulated by George Osborne after Premier League win

Published 37 Comments

Chelsea have confirmed the inevitable as victory over Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon saw Jose Mourinho’s side clinch the Premier League title with three games of the season remaining.

Eden Hazard, the player of the season, scored the only goal of the encounter as he headed in the rebound after Julian Speroni had saved his spot-kick - the first one the Belgian has missed.

There seemed as though there would only be one result after Chelsea had taken the lead and, as ever, Mourinho ensured the advantage would not slip in front of the home fans.

Chelsea are now 16 points clear of Manchester City - who play later on Sunday - with 83 points from their 35 matches played and lift the trophy for the first time since 2010.

It is the fourth time Chelsea have been Premier League champions - and a third time under Mourinho - and they will be the team to beat once more in the 2016/16 campaign.

But while it all seemed to be good news for Chelsea, they were congratulated on their triumph by the chancellor, George Osborne - and this is sure to give plenty more reason for some fans to dislike the Blues even more.

Here's how the internet reacted...
