Chelsea are 9 points clear at the top of the Premier League with about 14 games left to play and former Tottenham player Glenn Hoddle believes Chelsea will be uncatchable by April.

“You can never say for sure that the league is done and dusted in early February but that’s what it felt like on Saturday,” Hoddle wrote in his Daily Mail column.

“The Premier League title feels like it’s heading back Chelsea’s way. There may yet be a twist or turn. They have to go to Manchester United and Everton while Manchester City will come to Stamford Bridge.

“But those games are in April. Chelsea could easily be uncatchable by then. They may be able to take a draw in all of those games.

“I thought it would be closer than this; that the intensity of the battle in the top six would cause Chelsea to drop points. Though they did at Tottenham and Liverpool, the five challengers haven’t been good enough to exploit it.

“When Chelsea went into the Spurs game last month, they were only five points clear. After losing and drawing a game since then, they are now nine points clear.”
