What a terrific season this has been! Keenly contested and exciting do not even begin to fully describe it. For us, it is a memorable one especially after last season. The manner we have responded to the lows we hit the previous campaign is one of the positives about this term. And tonight, we will be handed the opportunity to put our seal on a well-deserved league trophy, the second league title in three seasons.
We would have wrapped things up before now, but for the few losses and draws we had to suffer lately, albeit, we’re a step closer today. If we do beat West Bromwich Albion tonight, we’ll be crowned champions with a few more games to spare, otherwise, we’ll have to wait a little longer.
The interesting thing about the game is we have a very good edge because we’re playing at home, and of course, we’re almost unbeatable at Stamford Bridge; the stats show it, but as much as we will want to get things wrapped up tonight, we must realise that we don’t have to throw caution to the wind and just let our guard down in a bid to desperately get a win tonight and be crowned league champions.
West Brom may be struggling of late, but they still have a good squad. They caused us problems the last time, and that can happen again if we’re not careful. We must approach the game with calm. Play to win, but without desperation, because that can make us vulnerable.
If we do not win the title tonight, we’ll still be champions because we will have another opportunity next Monday. Let tonight’s game be approached as the last game, with calm and excitement, not desperation. If we approach it that way, we’ll have nothing to lose at the end of the day.
