Is Chelsea’s run reminiscent of Leicester’s title surge last year? Both were glaring underdogs at the beginning of their respective seasons, and their weaknesses (defence) became their strengths. Oh, and both had a certain N’Golo Kante.
In the past few days, the situation involving Diego Costa and his supposed row with Antonio Conte seems to have overboiled. Not all you read was true, and Costa may yet stay.
Chelsea’s last 3 games, for an outsider looking in, doesn’t seem like a big deal. But, for the standards that the club have set, conceding 5 goals in 3 matches should represent grave concern for Conte.
Spurs put in a composed and determined performance to finally end Chelsea’s run of 13 consecutive wins. Dele Alli stole the show with two headed goals; can Spurs really go the distance?
Chelsea were given a scare by Manchester City at the Etihad, but Conte’s men are the ones who now scare everybody else in the league after goals from Costa, Willian, and Hazard sealed the win.
Round 12 of the Premier League tempted to provide us with a few upsets, but in the end, the big four survived. The league table remains unchanged, though surely it won’t be the case next week.
Chelsea’s Premier League season took a surprising turn—for the better—when they were beaten 3-0 by Arsenal. They haven’t conceded or lost since, and their latest victim was a hapless-looking Everton.
This past weekend, as always, presented us with some wonderful goals and moves. Chelsea continue to impress, City bounce back (is it really a bounce-back?) and United, oh dear.
The Premier League top four has taken on an added significance this season, not least because of the UCL spots that are on stake. However, has it already been decided? And will it change?
