​The Blues didn’t settle for simply winning

the title, instead opting for an historic

campaign

With the Premier League title already in

hand, Chelsea could have taken it easy in

the final week of the season.

Instead, the Blues went for a little bit of

history, securing their 30th win of the

season thanks to a 5-1 rout of cellar

dwellars Sunderland on Sunday. The

victory set a new record for most wins by

a club in a single Premier League

campaign, which should satisfy manager

Antonio Conte’s plea earlier this week that

his players not relax despite having

already secured the title.

30 – Chelsea have become the first

top-flight team in history to win 30

games in a 38-game season. Elite.

With the victory, Chelsea become thethird team in top-flight history to win 30 or more games in a season, and the first since Liverpool did so in the pre-Premier League era in May 1979.
