Shakhtar Donetsk have won an impressive 10th Ukrainian Premier League title in 15 years on Saturday, May 6, with a 3-2 win over Zorya Lugansk.

Facundo Ferreyra, Ismaily and Ivan Ordets scored for the champions which had Chelsea midfielder, Willian in their ranks between 2007 and 2013.

The club had to withstand a late surge from Zorya as goals from Igor Kharatin and Dennis Bonaventure set up a dramatic finale in the match.

But Shakhtar held on to maintain an unassailable 17-point lead over last season’s league champs, Dynamo Kyiv with five games to go.

Willian himself is set to win the league title in England with Chelsea, as the Blues hold an eight-point lead over Tottenham Hotspur.

All the Blues need is wins over relegation favourites, Middlesbrough on Monday and at West Brom next weekend to be crowned champions for the second time in three seasons.
