Chelsea

 By Phil Lythell

The moments that defined Chelsea's Premier League-winning campaign

The ESPN FC team once again debate whether or not Chelsea played boring football, following Ruud Gullit's statements on Jose Mourinho's managerial style.

With 25 wins and only two defeats in the 35 games that it took for Chelsea to be crowned Premier League champions, it is clear that consistency has provided the fundamental base for the team's success. Yet despite their machine-like quality to churn out result after result, there are a few particular matches that stand out as either pivotal to the eventual outcome or symbolic of the Blues' return to the top of the English game this season.

In recent Premier League campaigns, we've been treated to some outstanding end-of-season drama.

Sergio Aguero's 94th-minute winner against QPR to seal the 2011-12 title for Manchester City was the most incredible clincher in the Premier League era, while other run-ins have also been memorable: Chelsea sealed the title in 2009-10 with an 8-0 victory on the final day, and Manchester United's 2013 triumph was clinched with a Robin van Persie strike that was voted goal of the season.

Even when the clinching...

The tactical keys to Chelsea's Premier League-winning campaign

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...

Chelsea celebrate title win with One Direction star Niall Horan

With the Premier League title mathematically sewn up with a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace, it was only natural that Chelsea's stars went out partying over the Bank Holiday, with John Terry, Gary Cahill and Didier Drogba hitting the town to celebrate on Sunday evening.

As posted on Instagram by Terry himself, the Chelsea trio partied the night away along with One Direction member Niall Horan, who is either ridiculously tall or found himself a box to stand on.
