Although they still have two games to play, Chelsea now has an unassailable 87 points.
Moses was on for 86 minutes on Friday evening as he and his teammates defeated West Bromwich Albion in an away match.
The only goal of the game came in the 82nd minute and was scored by Belgian Michy Batshuayi who came on from the substitute bench.
Meanwhile a die-hard fan of Chelsea Football Club of England has named his newly-delivered baby-boy Antonio Moses, in the wake of the club’s league title win on Friday.
The Abakaliki-based fan, Mathew Irondu, a Construction Engineer, told NAN on Saturday that he named the boy, born last Thursday after the club’s Coach Antonio Conte and Nigerian star, Victor Moses as his own way of celebrating the win.
According to him, the duo, among other Chelsea players, were instrumental to the club’s stunning league success as the naming will eternally remind him of the title win.
“This win is most significant for me because it is the first by Chelsea since I switched my support to the club from Arsenal FC.
I had endured years of EPL drought from Arsenal which made me switch to Chelsea and I celebrated it this way because I don’t have money to make merriment.
This is my first child and I fervently pray that his birth, a day before Chelsea’s league win, will bring good tidings to my family, the club and their fans across the globe,” he said.
He attributed the feat to hard work, dedication, commitment, tactical acumen of Coach Antonio Conte and impeccable support of Owner Roman Abramovich and fans across the globe.
