After a weekend of FA Cup football, Premier League resumes this weekend, and Chelsea will be away at the King Power Stadium, as we play reigning champions, Leicester City.
Chelsea failed to capitalise on Liverpool’s slip-up in the last round of league matches, as we lost to Tottenham, thus reducing the gap at the top of the table to 5 points.
As we play Leicester City tomorrow, there are two things every true Blue expects.
1. A win
A win against Leicester City should be non-negotiable if we want to take hold of the title race. The least that’ll be good enough for Chelsea will be 3 points, knowing that a slip-up for Liverpool against Manchester United could increase the gap at the top of the table.
After dropping points against Spurs, getting all 3 points against the Foxes is number one priority. Besides, we have two tricky fixtures coming up after the game against Hull City, making it the more reason why we just have to take all 3 points.
2. A dominant performance
Besides winning Leicester, it’ll help the team spirit and belief if we can conjure a dominant performance marked with goals. A good display and win will spur the team on, and that could even be the catalyst for another winning streak, which could cement our grip at the top.
Furthermore, the loss against Spurs have given teams hope that Chelsea might indeed be beatable, after we won 13 games in a row. Producing a dominant display against the Foxes will help bring back that fear factor, and that’ll be a good thing.
These two things will surely make our weekend as fans of this prestigious club, but then, win, lose or draw, we are still Blue in our hearts.
