"We are the champions... again"
A goal from French defender William Gallas was followed by superb second-half strikes from man-of-the-match Joe Cole and centreback Ricardo Carvalho. With this, Chelsea emphatically underlined their current domination of English football.
Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho, who celebrated by tossing his medal and blazer into the Stamford Bridge crowd, has now won back-to-back titles with two teams following his successes with FC Porto in his native Portugal.
"It is an amazing feeling, a second title for Chelsea and a fourth for me and my people," he said. "We know one day we have to lose the championship, but for now it's fantastic. To win successive titles is not simple to get, but we have been ahead from the start of the season and I think we deserve it."
SUper talented midfielder Frank Lampard added: "The league does not lie. We are 12 points clear and we have beaten Manchester United 3-0. This is our moment and we are going to enjoy it."
