We’re about mid-way into the season, and it’s glaring where each team stands in the league.
In the past week, we took on two of the division’s toughest teams in Liverpool and Arsenal, and having seen the outcomes of those fixtures I can confidently say that we are primed to lift the league trophy this May. Going into those games, I knew we were up against big oppositions, and it wouldn’t be so smooth during that run. I also knew that we needed to get as much points as we could from those games because it’s that stage of the season where things are tightest.
Looking back, I am happy that we got the business done; first, getting a draw against Liverpool, even though we could have won, and then, that amazing, yet emphatic victory over Arsenal. That’s four points from two huge games, and they’re really vital points. Our closest rival is Tottenham, and they’re nine points behind. Man city and Arsenal are miles behind, and honestly, they’re the ones we have to be wary of. However, they’re all struggling at the moment, and contrastingly, we’re flying high. With those two heavy fixtures out of the way, we now have relatively easier opposition to play in the coming weeks, with the exception of Man City and United. Those games have 6 points to them, and whichever way it goes, I don’t see us getting affected negatively. If we win, it’s a plus, and if we lose, it won’t matter, because I don’t see us losing too many games between now and then. I don’t even see the other top teams not stuttering along the way.
However it goes, whatever the outcome of our remaining fixtures, the reality on ground is that Chelsea are high flying at the moment, and it’ll take some effort to change that. May is coming, and we can be rest assured we already have a hand on the league title.
