It’s now four matches away for Chelsea to be crowned Champions of England after another emphatic win over Everton. Conte and Chelsea are primed for league triumph and after Sunday’s win, we are the best bet to win the title. Here are 3 talking points from Sunday’s game:
What other way can a player make himself so relevant and important to his team than to score crucial goals. Countless times we’ve seen the little Spaniard make the difference for Chelsea in tight contests. Let’s do flashbacks to his stunning curling strike to level up the score against Spurs at Stamford Bridge. That goal gave Chelsea the impetus to win the game after earlier being run ragged in the early exchanges. More so, his sumptuous goal to put Chelsea 2-1 up against Swansea and spur Chelsea to victory after being pegged back by Llorente’s equalizer on the stroke half time. His early predatory finish against Manchester United at the bridge and many other ‘Pedro-moments’. On Sunday his powerful strike against Everton gave us the pivot to engineer a resounding victory against Everton. The Spaniard has been one of big Chelsea’s difference makers this season.
CHELSEA HOLD THEIR NERVE:
Prior to kickoff this game was seen as Chelsea last big test, and so the pressure was on Conte’s warriors to show title fight. The fact Everton’s Goodison Park is not an easy away game for any big team coupled with their decent home form made a more compelling fixture to watch. After much of Everton’s resistance, Chelsea’s class won the day over Everton cramp tactics to stifle us. No show of nerves but title fight street-wise gives Chelsea the edge.
CHELSEA STILL FAVOURITES FOR THE TITLE:
A glance at the remaining games on our fixture schedule gives an assurance of title triumph. Though the title race is not yet over, but the last big test of our season appears negotiated. The only obvious thing is for the team to play the games left with utmost measure of professionalism laced with strong resolve and killer instinct.
It’s true blues all the way as it only gets better for Chelsea. Cheers!
