Chelsea will be lifting the Premier League title after their final game of the season against Sunderland on SundayReuters

Chelsea will be in the mood for celebration as they will be lifting their first Premier League title in five years after their final Premier League fixture of the season against Sunderland at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was also picked up the manager of the season, while Blues star Eden Hazard completed his personal treble by voted as the Barclays Premier League Player of the Season in addition to his PFA and FWA's accolades this season

But the Blues seem to have become a little complacent after winning the Premier League title as they have failed to win their last two fixtures, drawing against Liverpool and losing to West Brom.

Still Mourinho is confident that his side will be able to do well in their final fixture of the season, insisting that Chelsea have always managed to bounce back after a defeat this season.

"We never did it twice in a row, so when we lost our first match after that match we won," the Portuguese told Sky Sports. "When we lost our second match, after that we won again, and when we lost our third match it was too late because we were already champions. with this mental consistency, this mental strength, the team was always very confident."

Despite the Blues success this season, the former Porto boss insists that his side will again have to start things from scratch next season owing to the competitiveness of the Premier League.

"You go to other countries and you know that if you have a top team you win," Mourinho told Chelsea's official website. "In this country you can finish first, fourth or fifth. I'm sure Liverpool were thinking about trying to win the title after finishing second (last season)."

"We were third, now we are first. Arsenal were fourth, now they are third. Man United were seventh, now they are fourth. Man City went from first to second. It's dangerous but we must always think positively and start the season feeling we are title contenders, but after that there is a big risk."

Sunderland, on the other hand, will also be looking to get a positive result in this game so that they can finish the season on a high.

The Black Cats, who have been doing well of late, remaining unbeaten in their last five fixtures, confirmed their stay in the Premier League for another season, following their goal-less draw against Arsenal in the last fixture.

Last season, Sunderland beat Chelsea 2-1 at Stamford Bridge to inflict the Blues their first home defeat in the Premier League under Mourinho. And Advocaat admits that his side will be looking for a similar result on Sunday.

"I know we were the first team to win there in 78 games against him," Advocaat told the Daily Express. "I admire him very much for what he has done in the past and what he is still doing – it's unbelievable.

"I admire him in many ways, the way his side plays, he says what he thinks – and I like that. But despite my admiration, I would still like to beat them.''

Expected Line-ups:

Chelsea: Courtois, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Luis, Loftus-Cheek, Matic, Remy, Mikel, Cuadrado, Costa

Sunderland: Mannone; Jones, O'Shea, Coates, van Aanholt; Rodwell, Larsson; Johnson, Fletcher, Defoe, Wickham
