FAB PICS: Chelsea Have Won Their Fourth Premier League Title After Beating Crystal Palace At Stamford Bridge On Sunday

Hazard directs the ball into net with his head after seeing his initially penalty saved by Crystal Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni
By the end of the day, all those in Chelsea blue had what they came for and Roman Abramovich was waving and smiling down from his executive seat. When you see Abramovich crack his surly Russian visage and display such emotion, you are witnessing a special moment, and here was his fourth Barclays Premier League title in 12 years since buying the club.

It ends a wait of five years and was clinched with three games to spare, thanks to a goal from Eden Hazard, who nodded in the rebound of a poor penalty he had seen saved, just before half-time.

Chelsea are champions. Worthy champions, it has to be said. More than one step beyond.
