For a short while, it looked as though Chelsea would run away with the Premier League title. However, Jose Mourinho always maintained it was more of a "fake" lead, per BBC Sport, given Manchester City's three games in hand.
With that being said, do Chelsea still have a chance?
Of course they do.
If you take a glance at the fixture list, Chelsea are yet to face Arsenal at home and Liverpool away. Other than that, there are not too many challenging matches ahead.
City, on the other hand, still have to face Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Everton—all of them on the road.
There is no doubt that the remaining fixtures favour Chelsea. However, considering the Blues have played relatively well against their title rivals and struggled more against teams that are mid-table or below, you wonder if Chelsea really do have the upper hand.
The main problem appears to be Chelsea's lack of experience.
We have seen multiple times this season a team unable to step up and get results in difficult circumstances. They have had some crucial wins, such as their victories over Manchester City and Everton. However, in other matches—against the likes of West Brom, West Ham and Aston Villa—their inexperience and lack of creativity has shown.
When it all comes down to it, Chelsea definitely can win the league. The question is, will they? Jose Mourinho is building a team at Stamford Bridge to win—whether it will be this season or not is up for debate.
