Frank Lampard described Chelsea as worthy winners of the Premier League title after the Blues secured the trophy with a scrappy 1-0 win over West Brom on Friday night.

Antonio Conte’s men clinched the trophy thanks to substitute Michy Batshuayi’s late goal at The Hawthorns.

Chelsea’s players celebrated wildly with Conte after the final whistle as they were crowned champions for the second time in three seasons.

The Italian’s impact at Stamford Bridge has been nothing short of remarkable following Chelsea’s disastrous 10th-placed finish last term.

And former Blues midfielder Lampard was delighted to see Chelsea clinch the title on Friday night.

“It was a scrappy game but sometimes these types of performances come from scrappy games,” Lampard said on Sky Sports on Friday night.

“There was that little feeling that something might just fall for Chelsea. It was ironic that it fell to a man [Batshuayi] who has not had much to do this year. Great scenes.

“They’ve been by far the strongest team this year. The consistency, the desire and the quality in the team – they deserve it and they deserve this moment with the fans.”
