Chelsea 1-0 Crystal Palace: Blues wrap up the Premier League title

Published May 3rd, 2015 - 02:45 GMT

Chelsea sealed their first Premier League title in five years beating Crystal Palace 1-0 after Eden Hazard headed in his rebounded penalty a minute before half time.

The Blues needed a win to be crowned champions and broke the deadlock when Hazard reacted well to his saved penalty after being brought down in the box by James McArthur. 

Eagles stopper Julian Speroni dived correctly but couldn't keep out the Belgian's accurate header as the winger netted his 19th goal of the campaign.

Palace's Jason Puncheon almost ruined the party when his long-range strike drifted wide of the post but Mourinho's men always looked comfortable.

Gary Cahill and Dider Drogba both had second half chances to put the result and title win beyond any doubt but they were not made to pay for their missed opportunities.
