More from Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho on BBC Sport: "I don't compare with the past, no. I can say it's very difficult, because the Premier League is changing and everything gets stronger, it's impossible to be beat some teams 8-0 or 6-0. You saw Crystal Palace come here with a fantastic attitude.

"Maybe in other countries they do not bring this to the game. They gave an exact image of the Premier League and the nature of the competition. The English game is still my favourite. I could be smarter and like other mangers choose teams and countries where it's easy to be champions, where they can enjoy calmly their success. I choose a country where it's difficult to win and a club without a big tradition of winning Premier League titles because the last one was in 2010. I choose a difficult job."

Manager reaction

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, speaking to BBC Sport: "I am very happy and proud. I need a rest, I'm tired. It's not easy to cope with that, but finally mathematically we are champions now. Finally we can breathe, relax and enjoy. We can look back and see how much we deserve to be champions. I think last season we were building something. This season there was work ethic, group ethic and principles with more stability and a few players we brought here gave us some qualities we didn't have.

"I always thought when the season started, and then winning match after match, I was feeling the team would be ready. I knew the work ethic would be there and the spirit would be there. The mentality in key moments in the season was there. I thought we had everything to win the title."

Manager reaction

Chelsea 1-0 Crystal Palace - Chelsea are champions

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, speaking to Sky Sports: "I come back to work the best I can and give everything I can to be champions which is a consequence of that work and dedication. When I came back I knew that I was coming back to the most difficult league to win in the world of football. And we've done it. I had my family just behind the bench and I could hug and kiss them. I let the players enjoy it on the pitch.

"Crystal Palace were fantastic with the way they have played. They were like they need the game to be champions or to not be relegated. For a team that is middle of the table that is fantastic and is the nature of football here. From day one to today nobody gave us anything. Everything we got we deserved.

"Every title is a consequence of hard work and a reason to be happy and proud. I can't evaluate and say which was one more important. This was my last title and I try to get another one. The group starts with the Capital One Cup and the Premier League but we know in future it's very difficult and other teams will come even stronger. England's not the best country to be a force and dominate football."

"The last four games I have played, I have kept a clean sheet. That shows we are defending well."

"He said: "That's why he (Mourinho) earns the money he does. He wins. He wins trophies and he will win them in any manner he thinks is right for that particular occasion.

"It will have to be a very good side that tops this team next year and I'm sure Jose will add to his depth as well."

Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew, speaking to BBC Sport: "Congratulations to Chelsea and Jose Mourinho and his players. They thoroughly deserve to win it and they're a credit to football. This Chelsea team were flamboyant in the first half of the season and did the job in the second half of the campaign. They have all the tools you need to win it.

"Today I thought we were a credit to the Premier League in terms of giving the champions a game. We made it hard for them. We had a game plan to try to restrict them. They are a difficult team to face - a team for all seasons and all scenarios.

"We could've had a penalty and they got one, and that was key. I'm not going to be critical of Eden Hazard, he's had a bit of contact and gone down."

Dan Vitran, Leicester: "Both Manchester clubs in transition and rebuilding. Liverpool always in transition. Arsenal always choke towards end of the season. Mourinho and Chelsea pretty much played the second half of the season without their first and second striker. I think the rest of the Premier League should be concerned. This could be the start of a dominant era for Mourinho and Chelsea. A genuine contender for Ferguson's legacy. Chelsea will only get stronger. "

Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta speaking to the BBC: "This is a very big moment, we deserve it, as a team we have been looking forward to this moment.

"We know the quality of the Premier League and it is tough, every game is difficult. To have a 16-point advantage and win it with three games to go is not an easy thing to do.

"Mourinho is a very big influence - we needed him. He has come to this team, we have won two trophies this year and we want to go and win more trophies. For me he has confidence in me and I am grateful to him."

"Full-on celebrations at Stamford Bridge. The turf is festooned by blue streamers and even the normally impassive Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is wreathed in smiles.

"The DJ going through the card - "We Are The Champions" and "Blue Is The Colour" - in honour of this very fine Chelsea team who fully deserve to be crowned champions.

"The notion that Chelsea are boring smacks of jealousy from their rivals who have struggled to win a title. Not much sign of boredom from Chelsea's fans at the moment."

Is Jose Mourinho the Premier League's greatest manager?

In guiding Chelsea to their fourth Premier League title, he has secured the 22nd trophy of his career.

Following his latest triumph, Mourinho now averages a trophy every 34 matches as a manager.

Since taking charge of Porto in 2002, the self-proclaimed 'Special One' has swept all before him - both domestically and in European competition.

Chelsea captain John Terry speaking to Sky Sports: "It's an unbelievable feeling. We've worked so hard, so to get over the line is great. It was a bit nervy - they are a good side and made it difficult. Thankfully Eden got the goal and we won the game.

"One person said - they know who they are - I couldn't play twice in a week and I proved them wrong. I've got great players and a great manager.

"This is what I live for. It's been five years since we've won it. The first one was special and you go four or five years without it and that hurts. So I'll really enjoy it today."
