SPORT NEWS: Chelsea by far the best in the Premier League - Pulis

The manager hailed Jose Mourinho and his players for their title-winning campaign despite overseeing a 3-0 victory for West Brom against the Blues

West Brom head coach Tony Pulis believes Chelsea are by far the best team in the Premier League, despite his side getting the better of the new champions.

In an unusual 30-second news conference, during which only Pulis spoke, the Welshman lauded Jose Mourinho's men for their season in which they have been crowned champions and sit eight points clear with a game remaining.

A double from Saido Berahino and a goal from Chris Brunt helped West Brom to an emphatic 3-0 victory, with Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas sent off in the 29th minute.

But Pulis was keen to point out Chelsea's dominance throughout 2014-15, hailing them as easily the top flight's best.

"Obviously we're very, very pleased. It's a great finish," he said.

"We finish 13th in the table but I don't think anything should be taken away from the team we played.

"The team that we've played have been by far the best team in England in the Premier League this year. They've won it by a country mile, and they've been that much better than anybody else.

"Although we've won the game, all the praise, everything else, should go to Jose, his coaching staff, the people at Chelsea and the players."
