Chelsea FC has won their first Premier League title in five
years after defeating Crystal Palace 1-0 overnight.

Last night’s win over Crystal Palace places the blues 13 points clear of second place
Manchester City, making them mathematically unreachable with three games left.

Goal scorer Eden Hazard proved to be the real difference not
only against Crystal Palace, but throughout the entire season.

The Belgian has been a class above the entire Premier
League, his crowning as PFA player of the year evident of his stellar form.

Despite all the ‘Boring boring Chelsea’ critics and social
media trolls, the blues have managed to claim 19 points from their last 21
games. Manager Jose Mourinho ‘The Special One’ will be more than happy to
continue playing his defensively minded strategy, as it’s proved to be a match
winning formula for his side.          

“Possession and tippy-tappy football’s great, but if
you are not winning games, you’re not going to win the league”- Captain John

Mourinho has won his third Premier League title in his
second spell with the blues, making it Chelsea’s fifth title overall.

"I am very happy and proud. I need a rest, I’m
tired,” Mourinho said.

“Finally we can breathe, relax and enjoy. We can look
back and see how much we deserve to be champions

"This is what I live for. It’s been five years since
we’ve won it. The first one was special and you go four or five years without
it and that hurts. So I’ll really enjoy it today- Captain John Terry.

Melbourne City set up first finals Derby.  


Melbourne City has won their first ever finals appearance
against Wellington Pheonix, setting up a long anticipated semifinal clash
against rivals Melbourne Victory.

The first 30 minutes saw a lacklustre performance from both
sides, displaying signs of repeating their two previous meetings, ending in
scoreless draws.

Game changer, Harry Novillo forced Pheonix keeper Glen Moss
to pull off a save after firing a strong shot on goal.

The Frenchman continued to cause problems on the left wing, combining
with Jonatan Germano, stretching the Pheonix defence.

City managed to find their feet in the second half, using
the big man Josh Kennedy up front. Germano’s prolific balls into the box found Josh
Kennedy in the air twice, who was unlucky not to score.

It was third time lucky for Kennedy, scoring a deflected
goal off Aaron Mooy’s long range effort. Kennedy has always had a knack of
scoring in big games, not only domestically, but on an international stage as

City’s strong press broke down the Pheonix defence,
resulting in a goal for Novillo, scoring with a ricocheted strike off the

birth and a chance to take on arch rivals and Premiers Plate winners Melbourne

The highly anticipated clash will be played at Etihad
Stadium this Friday, which is set to be a sell-out.
