With the Premier League gradually nearing its end, with each passing game and fixture, the competition gets even stiffer. Teams who were good at the start are losing steam, and those who were awful then are scrambling to save their campaign.
For us, it’s been a rather surreal journey, coming off the back of a terrible 2015/16 season to be the best team in the league thus far; it’s nothing, but amazing. We started on an inconsistent note, but gradually, we got it right, and now, we’re flying. Thanks to Conte and the lads for their relentless efforts.
But the journey is far from finished. We have 13 games to go, and every single one must count to us because they are all important. The more wins and points we garner, the closer to the prize we get. We’re no doubt, champions in-waiting, but all isn’t certain yet.
As we take on The Swans this weekend, we must be wary of the threat they pose. At this point, the lower sides are the most dangerous, because they want to save their season at all costs. What happened with Burnley should be a good reminder of this fact. All teams are big at this stage, top table or not.
Swansea gave us a hard time the last time out, and I honestly expect nothing less, especially with players like Llorente in their ranks. But of course, we’re Chelsea, and we’re very capable of getting the much desired win. Winning will cement our lead at the summit of the league, and give our rivals even more reason to be worried. My support and love is with the boys as always.
