Chelsea haven’t really suffered serious injury crisis this season, and former Liverpool manager Graeme Souness believes only an injury to Diego Costa and Eden Hazard at the same time can affect our fight for the title.

Chelsea are ten points clear at the top of the table, and Souness sees it ending in Chelsea’s favour even if an injury keeps Hazard or Costa out, but he isn’t sure what will happen if they are out injured at the same time.

“Chelsea will be champions unless they have a collective, catastrophic dip in form,” he wrote in his column for The Times.

“If Eden Hazard or Diego Costa is out, they would still have enough. If both were out at the same time, it might be touch and go. Barring that, they are home and dry.

“They showed again at Stoke that they can win playing all types of football and that is why they will be champions. They were not at their best, but were never going to lose the game and nicked it at the end.”
