Chelsea could draw from their experience in the successful 2015 title race, Cahill said.

After completing the 90 minutes of his side's comfortable 3-0 Premier League victory over Middlesbrough last night, the 6ft 6 Belgian added an incredible stat to his already bulging CV.

Well, May 9 2010 was the final day of the Premier League season, and both Chelsea and Manchester United still had the chance to clinch the title.

Diego Costa scored his 20th league goal of the season, converting a pass from the excellent Cesc Fabregas, and Marcos Alonso netted from a similar position before half-time, ahead of Nemanja Matic's second-half goal. That means we won eight games and lost only two.

He led the Premier League with 17 assists while with Arsenal in 2007-08 and was again the league leader in 2014-15, when he had 18 assists in his first season with Chelsea.

Nathaniel Chalobah, John Terry, Kurt Zouma and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are the Chelsea players with less than 10 appearances this season who will also be awarded medals for their contributions.

"I know we're not there yet, but we're very close and it will be very enjoyable after a year ago".

Meanwhile, Middlesbrough were relegated last night following the defeat at Stamford Bridge. "It's great for me, great for the players and for the club". Now we have been very good to find the right way and have a fantastic season. We must not forget we have to take three points in these three games. "On Friday, we have an opportunity to win and to take a title". "We're leaving it late but we've still got three games left to get 50 points, there's still a desire in the group to do that and we want to finish strong". "Of course we are happy we are so close but we have to stay concentrated to the end. We must focus and prepare well and West Brom away won't be easy, but we are in a good moment and with concentration and a good attitude we will try to win". I think that in this situation we showed great will and desire to win the title.

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has told talkSPORT lifting the Premier League title this season would be even sweeter for the club on the back of last year's disastrous campaign.
