After 16 Premier League games played, Chelsea are the 5th team to have gotten 40 points at this stage of the season, and of the 5 teams to have gotten 40 points at this stage, 4 went on to win the league.

Chelsea secured a 1-0 victory against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Wednesday night, and the game showed a lot of significance. First, it extended Chelsea’s lead at the top of the table to 6 points, and it also meant Chelsea have won 10 consecutive games.

With Chelsea now 6 points clear at the top, the team can have a sigh of relief and begin to play with extra swagger, and without fear.

After Arsenal’s loss on Tuesday and with every other title rival winning tonight, this was an important win for the Blues.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
