Chelsea have won the Premier League title for the third time in six seasons after thrashing Wigan Athletic 8-0.

The Premier League’s final day turned into a procession after Nicolas Anelka gave Chelsea the lead early on against Wigan.

And though Manchester United comfortably defeated Stoke City, they were left to rue what might have been. Indeed the only real fireworks at Old Trafford occured before the kicked when anti-Glazer protestors let off a smoke bomb outside the club shop.

Chelsea have scored 103 goals in their 38 games – a Premier League record, while they have now scored 25 goals in their last five home games.

Arsenal secured third place thanks to a 4-0 victory against Fulham, who rested several senior players ahead of Wednesday’s Europa League final against Atletico Madrid.

Tottenham’s season finished on a low note when they were beaten 4-2 at Burnley despite taking a 2-0 lead.

Wigan began brightly at Stamford Bridge, but Chelsea’s nerves were settled when Anelka volleyed past Mike Pollitt to put them ahead.

And the game was put to bed when Frank Lampard scored the second goal from penalty spot after being pulled down by Gary Caldwell, who was sent off.

Chelsea wonder-boy, Didier Drogba has won the Golden Boot for the season.

The feat came after he scored three goals against Wigan, out lodging  Wayne Rooney who has been widely tipped for the Boot.
