Jose Mourinho lauded his Chelsea players for the determination, quality and consistency that secured the Blues' fourth Premier League title, following a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

In the age of tactical flexibility and squad rotation, Chelsea's title has been built on old-fashioned principles. Jose Mourinho has stuck to the same 4-2-3-1 framework throughout the campaign and has used the same players: three are ever-presents in the Premier League, 10 have started at least 26 games and an 11th, Diego Costa, would surely have done likewise but for injuries and suspension.

Chelsea's triumph has been based on key performers playing key roles and, tactically, six men have been particularly...

Jose Mourinho's Chelsea changes and choices make title win satisfying

It was around this time two years ago that Chelsea and Jose Mourinho began plotting his return to Stamford Bridge.

It was a telegraphed return. His Real Madrid experience was coming to an end amid acrimony and accusations, and the fact that he had three years left on his deal at the Bernabeu wasn't worth, for either side, the paper it was written on. Meanwhile, Chelsea's own manager, Rafa Benitez, was due to leave Stamford Bridge in a few weeks.

From the earliest meetings between Chelsea and Mourinho,...

Chelsea win the Premier League with strong performers all-round vs. Palace

ESPN FC's Craig Burley believes Chelsea were far better than the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City after being crowned 2015 Premier League champions.

The title race is officially over -- Chelsea have been crowned 2014-15 Premier League champions after they beat Crystal Palace 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Eden Hazard's goal just before halftime was enough to bring the title back to west London for the fifth time in the club's 110 year history, sparking joyous celebrations on the pitch and in the stands.

In truth, the Blues made a nervy start to the game, unsure whether to go for the jugular or play the percentages. The goal settled the hosts down and...

Chelsea's Premier League win was the eighth league title of Jose Mourinho's career. We rank The Special One's league triumphs with Porto, Chelsea, Internazionale and Real Madrid.

8) Inter 2008-09

The Inter that Mourinho took over in 2008 was very different to the side it is today. They were the dominant force in Italian football with the previous three Scudetti to their names (the first by default in the aftermath of Calciopoli and the other two almost as much), but he still guided them to a convincing...

1. Hazard inspires Chelsea's title clinch

It ended as it had gone on for so long: in a well-stage-managed procession. Eden Hazard headed home to finally confirm what has been long known: Chelsea are the 2014-15 Premier League champions.

In that, Sunday's 1-0 win over Crystal Palace was much like the title race itself. Jose Mourinho's side got a sufficiently early lead, and never looked like letting it slip. There...
