If Diego Costa's hamstring holds up, Chelsea will have the league wrapped up before the winter break.

The common theme in all these wins is how they raise their level of play in the 2nd half. At best, they are unstoppable...at worst, in complete control. A guy like Hazard alone can do so much damage against tired defenders in the last 25 minutes.

They play Man City on the road next week, a must win game for City after they dropped points yet again today.

And Liverpool go down 0-1 to Villa.

Chelsea already leading City, Liverpool, Arsenal & Man Utd by 5, 6 and 7 pts respectively. Knowing that others are bound to drop points at some stage (just how it goes in the Premier League) it's really hard to imagine them losing this lead.

Shocking to see Lampard come on to score that goal against my blues. He refusal to celebrate on the pitch is one of the all time moments of class in the epl's history. You can't script this kind of stuff.

Ironically it was the kind of goal that Lampard has scored a hundred times in his career for Chelsea. Getting on the end of a pass after a perfectly timed 'ghost' run into the box. You would think they would have been prepared for something like that after going up against him in practice all these years.

That was a terrific game though, only somewhat worsened by the yellow card getting Zabaleta sent off but we still had a great finish to the game. i guess that's another advantage of having Costa on your team; the guy always provokes others into doing stupid things.

btw, draftkings has EPL games now!!

Chelsea and Man City now both in mid season form. Both looked outstanding today.

Aguero put on a clinic. 4 goals. wow!

Same old, same old in the PL.

 

Diego Costa out for 3 weeks is the big news, but Chelsea seem to win without getting out of 2nd gear so the impact probably isn't as big as one would expected. He got them off to a flying start, and that's set up their season already. Chelsea get Man Utd and Liverpool in 2 of the next 3 weeks (not to mention the 2 big champions league games in between)...they can afford a draw or a loss at this point, enough cushion at the top of the table. 

 

Biggest surprise of the week (and the season, i guess) was Southampton's 8-0 win...this team looks the real deal, which is interesting since most people expected them to go backwards after they changed coaches.

Remy injured in today's Champions League game.

 

Chelsea down to 1 striker, Drogba. Wonder how this changes things
