Chelsea Have Premier League Title All But Wrapped Up

 

Chelsea Football Club sit atop the table of the Premier League and it looks like only one team can prevent them from walking away with the title. Themselves.  They are definitely arguably the best soccer team in the world.

 

The Blues lead the league by 10 points the 11 game to be played. Their closest rivals, Tottenham Hotspur, have lost their leading striker, Harry Kane, for the rest of the season to injury. As other top teams like Arsenal, Manchester City, and Liverpool continue to drop points, Chelsea continue to rack up points.

 

Eden Hazard has once again shown why he is considered on the best players in the world with his form this season. The Belgium international has scored 11 goals and tallied 4 assists so far this season. This is a far cry from last season when he knocked in just four Premier League goals.

 

Along with Hazard, midfielder N’Golo Kante has made a strong case for being named Player of the Year. The French international has been playing incredibly this season, leading the team in tackles and interceptions.

 

Chelsea has lost only once in their last 10 Premier League fixtures and that was on January 4th to Tottenham. Their nest match at Stoke could prove to be a difficult one. It is always difficult to get a victory at the bet356 Stadium. Stoke are unbeaten at home in their last six games and are currently ninth in the league.

 

With so few games left to play and a 10 point lead, it would take a historic collapse for Chelsea to lose the title. Stranger things have happened, but it looks like the Premier League trophy will be heading to West London.

Can Chelsea Compete For Premier League Title Without Diego Costa?

 

Premier League leaders Chelsea, one of the best soccer team in the world, will be without their star striker, Diego Costa when they travel to Leicester to take on the Foxes Saturday. Costa has been dropped from the squad due to a dust-up between him and Blues manager Antonio Conte.

According to reports, Costs got into an argument with a Chelsea trainer over an injury. This then escalated into a shouting match between him and Conte. The Telegraph has reported that an exasperated Conte shouted at Costa to “go to China!”

This was in reference to reports that Costa has been offered a $36 million a year offer from Chinese Super League club Tianjin Quanjian, because he’s one of the best soccer players. That contract would make Costa one of the highest paid footballers in the world. The current highest paid player is Carlos Tevez, who signed for Shanghai Shenhua.

Diego Costa currently leads the league in scoring with 14 goals and has been nearly unstoppable this season. Thanks to his dominance, Chelsea are currently at the top of the league with a five-point lead.

But that could all come crashing down if Costa leaves for China. Beyond his scoring, Costa has contributed to the team in so many other ways this season. He has five assists so far this season and continuously commands the attention of at least two defenders, freeing up teammates to score.

Costa has been linked with moves out of Chelsea for the last two seasons. It has been reported that he is unhappy living in London and has not assimilated well. If he does leave, Chelsea will be hard pressed to replace him and their title hopes may come crashing down.

Chelsea Could Win Treble Trophy in 2014-15 Season

Chelsea has won their first trophy of the season 2014-15 as well as Mourinho’s first after 2nd spell. Moreover, they are still in the Champions League last 16 and Premier League leader.

The France international and former arsenal star, Thierry Henry, thinks that Chelsea could win treble in the season because they are playing extra-ordinary well.

According to the legend, “Chelsea is in great run, they are already the league leaders of Premier League and in the Champions league too. Therefore, there is huge chance to win treble under Mourinho.”

Chelsea step forward to the treble by winning the Capital Cup of the season by winning against Tottenham by 2-0 at Wembley. Chelsea players are highly confident to win the Premier League title too!

Chelsea has drawn the away leg match with Paris Saint Germain by 1-1 and could win in the home leg game. Henry is now working as media pundit in England and he is thinking like Chelsea fans right now.

Fans like Igor Cornelsen (bubblews.com) agree that Chelsea men’s are great in the season especially the midfielders and forwards are highly confident, meanwhile, in form players. Although winning Champions league may not be as easy as we are thinking right now. If they passed PSG test, then, they could face Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Real Madrid who are the top teams of the world.
