Gary Neville has hailed Chelsea as worthy champions after they clinched the Premier League title on Friday night.

Michy Batshuayi came off the bench to score the winner late on as Antonio Conte’s man wrapped up the title thanks to a 1-0 win over West Brom at The Hawthorns.

Chelsea won the title with two games to spare to cap a remarkable first season for Conte at Stamford Bridge.

The west London side have been the most consistent team in the Premier League this season and former Manchester United defender Neville says the Blues fully deserve the title.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Neville said: “It’s fully deserved.

“They’ve been reliable for most of this season. It’s been a brilliant performance. They stayed together. Conte has been a live-wire on the touchline and now he has a great moment.”

Chelsea, who finished 10th last season, now turn their attentions towards their home clash against Watford on Monday night.
