Chelsea are the team to beat in the Premier League. The Blues have been dominant since October, and have only lost once in the league since the loss to Arsenal in September.

Antonio Conte has instilled a winning spirit in the team, and the Italian went on to reveal the hallmark of a championship winning side.

He told the Chelsea pitch owners in an interview: “I think to win, not only one game, but to win … not one [battle] but the whole war it is important to create a good spirit. To create a team, and to try to exploit every single player, the talent of every single player in the best way. And for this reason to find the right solution, the right system, to create a family spirit, a good spirit. And then in the negative moments it’s important to have a family. If you have a family, you solve the situation and then can go forward. I think this is very important to win the league: to create a team, to create a good spirit with your team, and for sure to have good players.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
