It's practically impossible to distill any player's performance into an accurate single number. Even in the best of times, player ratings are highly subjective, emotional, biased, whimsical, and so on and so forth.

And so, understandably, when Chelsea win the title, the ratings will be heavily skewed towards the perfect 10.  And as the scorer of the league-winning goal, ending Eden Hazard's two-year reign in that department, Michy Batshuayi is as perfect as it gets.

2. CÉSAR AZPILICUETA 9.3

Clearances3/3
Dave has been Chelsea's biggest unsung hero this season, taking to his new position with aplomb and playing a key role in both defense and attack.

Even as the Premier League's leading passer (in terms of volume), Azpilicueta's impact to Chelsea's gameplan is not easily measured in statistics. Though he did provide the cross for the winning goal, so we can even chalk up  an assist in this one for the future captain.

3. THIBAUT COURTOIS 9.0

Courtois didn't have much to do all game and his best save was even nullified by an earlier offside flag, but he did have the second best celebration on Michy's goal, running all the way from his penalty area to the coach's technical area to hug and jump around with Conte, who of course had the best celebration of all (complete with a minor cut on his lip even).

STARTERS:
Courtois (9.0), Cahill (8.9), David Luiz (9.0), Azpilicueta (9.3), Alonso (8.8), Matić (8.8), Fàbregas (8.9), Moses (8.9), Hazard (8.7), Costa (8.4), Pedro (8.6)

SUBS:
Willian (8.6), Batshuayi (9.5), Zouma (8.6)
