What an awesome week it has been for the Chelsea Football Club.. first we beat Manchester City on their turf and now we are on the top of the English Premier League. It wasn’t entirely unexpected as they were always keeping pace with Arsenal and Manchester City and anytime those two teams lost points, Chelsea had a very good chance to be on the top. Ideally, they should have been on top last week, however, better late than never. The team is playing the best since the season has started and I am hoping they close out the season as champions!! The game against Manchester City was billed as the clash of the champions, a free goal scoring team vs. the team which has arguably the best defense in the Premier League. It was widely expected that Chelsea will “park the bus”. However, what everyone saw was an entirely different Chelsea who after withstanding onslaught from City in the first 20 mins, took the game to the opposition. The Chelsea midfield of Hazard, Ramires and Willian was just too much for City to handle. Chelsea were a bit unfortunate to not score more than 1 goal as they hit the goal post thrice. City simply had no chance. It was a championship performance.
The following game against Newcastle, Hazard showed why he is one of the best players in the world. His strikes were simply amazing and Newcastle had no response to Chelsea. He has been tremendous form and is well supported by Willian, Matic and Eto’o. I just hope that Chelsea continue with this rich vein of form and end the seasons as Champions.
