'Compelling football and reasons to celebrate'

Premier League Executive Chairman Richard Scudamore talks about Chelsea’s success and reflects on the achievements of another intensely competitive season.

This Is Premier League: Eden Hazard, Chelsea

The competitive intensity of the Premier League has once again produced compelling football, achievements to celebrate and stories to enjoy.

Chelsea are worthy champions. Antonio Conte put on a coaching master-class, best illustrated by his team being the first to win 30 matches in a 38 round Premier League season.

Eden Hazard and Diego Costa entertained us with flowing football and superb goals, whilst N'Golo Kante's tackling and work rate saw him quite rightly rewarded as EA Sports Player of the Season.

Chelsea's N'Golo Kante won EA SPORTS Player of the Season for 2016/17

Tottenham Hotspur played some fantastic football. Harry Kane deserves special praise for winning the Premier League Golden Boot in consecutive seasons - an amazing achievement from 'one of their own'.

Stadiums were 96.5% full, a new record for the fourth consecutive season in a row, with our dedicated fans enjoying plenty of close, high-scoring matches.

Highlights of the community work delivered by our clubs this season included Premier League Kicks celebrating its tenth anniversary and the launch of Premier League Primary Stars - our most ambitious community programme to date.

The interest in the Premier League means we can create structures that enable our clubs to be ambitious on and off the pitch - inspiring and connecting with fans and communities at home and away.
