Gary Lineker reacts to Chelsea winning Premier League title after 1-0 victory at West Brom
The former Spurs striker sends a message to the Chelsea squad after winning the Premier League title
Gary Lineker sent a message to Chelsea after Antonio Conte’s side won the Premier League title.
The Blues secured the first Premier League trophy under Conte and second title in three seasons thanks to a 1-0 win at West Brom on Friday night.
Belgium striker Michy Batshuayi scored an 82nd-minute winner to leave Chelsea 10 points clear of second-placed Tottenham Hotspur with two games to spare.
Chelsea can still complete the double if Conte’s side beat bitter rivals Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley later this month.
Lineker wasted no time taking to Twitter to send a message to the Chelsea squad after their Premier League title success.
Lineker wrote: “Congratulations to @ChelseaFC on becoming Premier League Champions.”
Chelsea appointed Conte as their new manager at the end of the 2015-16 season after the Blues finished in tenth place last term.
The west London side signed five players in the summer transfer window following Conte’s appointment as Guus Hiddink’s replacement.
Chelsea were 4-2 winners against Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley last month.
