When Can Chelsea Win The Premier League?

The remarkable reversal of Chelsea is almost complete.

One year after finishing tenth and losing 12 games, Antonio Conte’s Chelsea are on the brink of clinching the club’s fifth Premier League title.

After Tottenham lost Sunday against West Ham, the race is all but over. Chelsea play two matches this week and if they win both, they will guarantee themselves a party when they host Sunderland on the final day of the season.

Four points separate Spurs from the leaders, but Chelsea play two midweek matches before Spurs host United on Sunday. If they win both, that would give Spurs a ten-point deficit with three games remaining.

After the celebrations, Chelsea still have one more game on the schedule. One week after they raise the trophy, they’ll go after another in the FA Cup final against Arsenal. Chelsea haven’t won the Premier League and the FA Cup since 2010.

As far as clinching, it will be the latest clinch for a Premier League champions since 2014. With Liverpool chasing behind them, Manchester City won the title on the final day of the season by defeating West Ham. The previous two Champions, Leicester City last year and Chelsea in 2015, wrapped up league titles on May 2nd and 3rd, respectively.
