The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are on cloud-9…
On Sunday afternoon, the Blues wrapped up the Premier League title in emphatic fashion – securing a 5-1 win over Sunderland on the final day of the campaign.
Though Chelsea have had very little to fight for in recent weeks, the nature of their display against Sunderland proved just how dedicated they are and how emphatically the Blues have won the title this year – and the win has also cemented their name in the history books.
The win, which was Chelsea’s 30th of the season, sets a new record for wins in a single season according to Opta Joe on Twitter – with the Blues surpassing their own record of 29.

Considering how poor the Blues were at the start of the season, this record is just remarkable. It proves just how lethal the club have been as the season has progressed – with their 3-0 defeat to Arsenal earlier in the season clearly a turning point for the Blues.
Though the Premier League title has been won for several weeks, Chelsea have been relentless – and our landlord thinks that their performances in recent weeks have proven their might.
