Michy Batshuayi will now inevitably gain cult status amongst Chelsea fans following on from his goal on Friday that secured the Premier League title for Chelsea this season.
The Blues began the 2015/16 campaign as champions, but proceeded to capitulate in their title defence, and went on to finish outside the Champions League places in a disappointing 10th position.
Chelsea won the 2014-15 title under Jose Mourinho, who was sacked for a second time seven months later after the Blues imploded.
"You have to cherish these moments, you work so hard all season to be where we are".
Courtois told Chelsea TV: "After past year, when we were so bad and it looked like nothing was going to work, to win the league again is fantastic".
Watford manager Walter Mazzarri is in no doubt Chelsea deserve the plaudits as champions, but remains determined his players will not get swept up in the title celebrations at Stamford Bridge.
N'Golo is having a great season for us, I am pleased for him and to receive the best player award is great because in this league we have a lot of fantastic players. Only one year later, to win in a league where there are big teams with great players and great managers, it's important to celebrate now. "It is my first Premier League title", Chelsea defender Luiz, who has been a defensive rock since returning to the club this season after two years in Paris, said. Now we have to find the right substitutes for these players and then work to put these players at the same level.
Chelsea will complete the double with victory over Arsenal in the FA Cup final - only the second in their history - and for Conte, the challenge of building on this season's success has already started.
"Yes I can", Responded Conte to being asked if he could 100% guarantee that he will still be at Chelsea next year.
2,341 " Azpilicueta has made more passes than any other Premier League player. We know last season was hard.
But when will we actually see them lift the cup, and will John Terry get a medal despite his lack of appearances - all you need to know is here.
"It wasn't easy for me to arrive in England and try different habits, a different language and inherit players after a bad season", Conte said.
"Sooooooo happy for @mbatshuayi and @ChelseaFC of course".
