It’s another win for Chelsea and our ninth in a row which also caps a beautiful weekend for us after overcoming a stubborn West Brom team. After coming off the halftime break feeling frustrated with the organised and resolute Baggies setup, this must have surely given manager Antonio Conte food for thought.
As we delve into the festive fixtures with games coming quick and on a spin, preparations for games need to be done at a maximum level. The stark reality is that this is the time we need to seize our opportunities. With an easier schedule to negotiate through the calendar year, certainly we could be out of sight before anyone realises it.
Conte and Chelsea must seek solutions to breaking down teams that park the bus. We must take advantage of our rivals dropping points and claim an unassailable lead in our quest for league glory. More so, this is the time to show great team spirit, pro-activity, ruthlessness and organisation. With Sunderland, Bournemouth, Crystal Palace to be played, the squad needs to be firing on all cylinders. The need to reshuffle the squad using the rotation system will be a great idea. Keeping players free from injuries, fatigue and burnout will add a much needed impetus and keep them at peak level for the challenge ahead. It’s now or never as we surge towards reclaiming the league title. Cheers!
