Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho insists his side will be going all out for victory against West Brom despite having already clinched the title.
Mourinho takes his players to The Hawthorns on Monday with the Premier League already won.
But Mourinho believes pride will be the driving force for his squad, and the Chelsea boss reckons the same will apply with Albion.
"We all need to respect the game and play for the best result. We are going to try (for) the maximum possible points," said Mourinho.
"I'm happy that West Bromwich Albion is also champion of their league and they don't need points. So no pressure for us, no pressure for them.
"But for sure they want to win the last game at home and for sure we want to try the maximum points."
Chelsea entered the weekend's fixtures with an 11-point advantage, and Mourinho is keen to reach the 90-point mark with maximum points from the final two games, with Sunderland playing at Stamford Bridge on the final day of the campaign.
"To be champion is to be champion, one point more, one point less," Mourinho said. "But the reality the maximum points possible, the better.
"The more distance you have to the second, the better. And we are going to try."
