Chelsea won the Premier League for the first time in five years Sunday, securing the title with three games to spare with a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

Eden Hazard scored the lone goal at Stamford Bridge a week after the winger was honored by fellow players with the player of the year award. His weak penalty kick was saved by Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni at the end of the first half, but the Belgian headed in the rebound.

The narrow victory was enough to give Chelsea an insurmountable lead and dethrone Manchester City. This is Chelsea's fourth league title in 11 years and manager Jose Mourinho's third with the club and first since returning in 2013.
