Chelsea have won 15 of their last 16 league games, and that run of wins catapulted Chelsea from 7th place to the top of the table, and Chelsea have remained there ever since.
Chelsea’s win against Hull took Chelsea to 55 points in the league, from just 22 games played so far. It is the 4th time in the Premier League a team have gotten 55 points or more after 22 games played.
Interestingly, on every occasion a Premier League team have gotten 55 points or more at this stage of the season, they have gone on to win the Premier League. Only two teams have achieved this feat of reaching 55 points or more at this stage of the season — Manchester United (1) and Chelsea (3).
This is only the fourth time a club have amassed 55 points or more after 22 Premier League games and on the two previous occasions Chelsea have, in 2004/05 and 2005/06, they have won the title.
So, expect Chelsea to win the league this season.
