Chelsea have had a great start to this season’s Premier League. They look like a formidable force, which was perhaps expected after the summer transfers they conducted. Fans like Sergio Lins Andrade excitedly awaited their return to the pitch. Quality players were added to a side that already had plenty of talent. These players have fixed the problems they had last season and shown that Jose Mourinho’s team are the best in England.
The threat of Manchester City looks slightly blunted. City look a decent team on their day, but have shown no consistency at all. Southampton are closest to Chelsea in the table, but it is only a matter of time before their tiny squad stops performing above its level. Arsenal could be a threat, but they have too brittle a team to sustain a title challenge.
They look like a team that will battle for a top four finish, not for the top position.
The way is clear for Chelsea. They entertain West Brom at the weekend and will hope to extend their lead at the top. The busy Christmas period is coming soon, and Chelsea will want to take full advantage. If they can get maximum points in their next five or six games, their gap at the top could be close to double digits.
