Chelsea-Machester City: Chelsea Finally Back in Form?

Seth LimContributor IOctober 27, 2007

After a stunning 6-0 win against Manchester City, Chelsea finally look as though they're playing football.

The chemistry was flowing, the plays were working, and the execution was flawless.

Even yesterday, I'd thought that perhaps Chelsea had lost their top-four form for good. But things finally seem to be looking up.

Of course, one win doesn't necessarily foreshadow a good season, and it's quite possible that Chelsea won't be able to continue to play as they did today.

It's also quite possible that they're perhaps a bit too far behind to catch up with the leaders of the pack—although I don't think it's fair to rule out a title.

What is it that has so drastically improved Chelsea's performance? Perhaps Henk Ten Cate worked his magic, or maybe Avram Grant did. Whatever it was, my only hope is that it will keep happening.

Chelsea is a talented team.They need to start showing it, and very soon, if they wish to challenge for the top spot.

The rumours of Ronaldinho or even Kaka joining the club are intriguing ones—but to be honest, Chelsea doesn't need more star players.

Chelsea needs more chemistry.
