"I'm thankful to my teammates, coaching staff and so many fans", said the South Korea worldwide, who also won September's award and has scored 12 league goals in a fine season.

It was £30m summer signing Batshuayi who scored the goal that sealed the title at the Hawthorns on Friday night, coming off the bench to score only his second league goal for Chelsea.

The north Londoners were once again edged out of the title picture as Chelsea secured their fifth championship in 13 seasons after victory at West Bromwich Albion - confirming top spot with two games to spare.

"In my day the big excuse for people like Sol Campbell leaving was 'I'm leaving because I want Champions League football". We have definitely improved on past year but after the game against West Ham, everything before gets forgotten.

Son has 12 goals in the EPL, in addition to six goals in the English Football Association (FA) Cup and one goal in the UEFA Champions League.

Instead, the club must hope that their temporary switch to Wembley Stadium can bring them the success they crave, before embarking upon a new era back on their current site. "But [I have] nothing to regret and we will try next season to try to win the league".

Dele Alli and Eric Dier arrived at White Hart Lane for relative peanuts while the likes of Victor Wanyama and Christian Eriksen were also signed for cut-price fees when you consider their impact and innate talent.

Poch has pledged his loyalty to Spurs and will stick to chairman Daniel Levy's strict budget instead of splashing the cash after missing out on the title.

Sugar said: 'Of course there will be sadness there when they start to tear that down.

'Not just me but the core of the existing 30,000 fans, for example, there will be a certain sadness about it.

'I think it's not fair to measure with me, as it is to measure with Wenger. But Italian tactician Antonio Conte revived the London club as the coach came with a 3-4-3 formation with success. I mean it's got nothing to do with it at all. It's down to the type of players that you buy'.
