Chelsea beat West Bromwich Albion in last night’s Premier League clash and The Hawthorns became the 16th stadium where a Premier League title has been decided.

Since the introduction of the Premier League and the rebrand, 16 stadiums around the country have now seen a tie decide where the title goes that year and it began back in 1992/93 where the inaugural Premier League trophy went to Manchester United owing to Aston Villa’s loss at Villa Park to Oldham Athletic.

It’s by no means the only time a title has been decided in a game not involving the eventual champion but as you would expect given the usual battlers for the number 1 spot, some stadiums feature far more prominantly than others.
