Last weekend was a wonderful one for Chelsea, as the Blues took advantage of the slumps of other title rivals, by winning Hull City to extend their lead at the top of the table to 8 points.
Liverpool lost, Tottenham shared the points with Manchester City and Manchester United also drew, meaning Chelsea had to take advantage of the failings of their title rivals — and they did.
Chelsea great Pat Nevin has commended the team for sticking to the old saying ‘make hay while the sun shines’.
He wrote in his column for the official Chelsea website: “There is an old saying, ‘Make hay while the sun shines.’ Well there hasn’t been a lot of sunshine in west London recently but metaphorically, Chelsea have certainly been harvesting the points while others have been caught napping.
“For the second week in a row, others near us have frittered points away and Chelsea haven’t. It is slightly infuriating that from our point of view, Arsenal managed to somehow get an extra two points with a last-second penalty that shouldn’t have been a penalty and was offside anyway. Still it was another fine weekend in an ever-increasingly heartening season.”
Up next for Chelsea in the league are Liverpool and Arsenal, making our win against Hull City very important.
