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.

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

The ESPN FC crew respond to Chelsea clinching the Premier League title, where all are in agreement Jose Mourinho's side are more than deserving of the title.

Monday is a public holiday in the UK, which will be a boost to the many Chelsea supporters who will have woken up with a hangover after celebrating the Premier League title, secured with a functional 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

That the Blues are champions with three games to spare serves to underline the dominance of Jose Mourinho's team in the top flight this season, yet despite this the manner of Eden Hazard's winner against the Eagles encapsulated the campaign perfectly.

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.
