Chelsea: The Real Numero Uno

Saura BhattacharjeeAnalyst IOctober 23, 2016

WOW! What a nice start to the weekend. Manchester United thrashed 3-1 by resurgent Everton and the Blues' hitman Didier Drogba scoring his 24th and 25th goal of the season in a 2-0 win against an inspired Wolverhampton side.

Chelsea have once again consolidated their position at the top of the table with that four point lead. People who started to think that this is the time when United starts gaining pace must have had a shocker. After what the Red Devils claimed a "well played" match against AC Milan, the the Reds were the favourites. They looked to fulfill that prediction. But a series of beautiful moves from Everton and the fragile Reds' defence saw them get three goals and four points adrift of their title.

Chelsea have been in exceptional form this year. Drogba is in his best scoring days and is the main contender for the golden boot along with Rooney. Florent Malouda has left behind his lacklustre form and gained a prominence in Chelsea's gameplay. Even Petr Cech, after a few erratic spells, is at his best. Only a world class goalkeeper like him could have saved the few bold moves made by the Wolves.

Chelsea are looking in great form and the players are brimming with confidence. These times reminds us of the Jose Mourinho years. These could well be the year for Chelsea to go for the Treble, and I am confident they surely will succeed.
