How Twitter reacted to Chelsea lifting the Premier League trophy

Written by

Chelsea capped a tremendous domestic campaign as goals from Diego Costa and Loic Remy ensured that the Champions got their title-winning party off on the right foot – with a 3-1 victory over Sunderland. The Blues may have wrapped up the league title three weeks ago, but they were made to wait until the last game of the season to lift the trophy.

The Black Cats took the lead through Scotland striker Steven Fletcher who headed home at the back post, before Chelsea replied through Diego Costa’s penalty, after John O’Shea fouled Juan Cuadrado in the 18-yard-box. However, it was the ever-prolific Loic Remy who stepped up for the league winners, scoring twice in the 70th and 88th minute to secure a novel three points.

This victory brought to an end a season in which Jose Mourinho’s side had been top of the table for a record 268 days. Indeed, the Stamford Bridge outfit have occupied top sport ever since the moment they beat Everton 6-3 at Goodison Park. Eight points clear at the top, this highly anticipated final day saw the club lift the Premier League trophy for the third time in its history.

Sunday’s proceedings had a touch of added emotion, following the involvement of Petr Cech and Didier Drogba. The Blues fans said goodbye to Drogba who announced that this would be his last game for the club, while Cech is also likely to have made his last appearance as he prepares to move elsewhere during the summer transfer window.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to a historic afternoon at Stamford Bridge:
