Slipping to a 1-0 home defeat, against Leicester City, wasn’t the Christmas present I was hoping for from Chelsea Football Club, let alone having to witness such a lacklustre performance like we did.
The defeat leaves us, in my opinion, vying for fourth place with Arsenal, with Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur heading for the top three places.
But what has made the whole situation worse is that other results, this weekend, have seen Liverpool open up a four-point lead at the top of the table, courtesy of Manchester City slipping to a home defeat against Crystal Palace.
There’s nothing I fear more than Liverpool winning the Premier League title, the history makers making history.
Can you imagine a media in full swing heaping praise on the club that can do no wrong?
It is a frightening scenario, but what are the chances of it happening?
What are the chances of Jurgen Klopp and his band of merry men, dancing around Anfield with the Premier League trophy?
Well pretty rare I’d say.
The history books show that on the eight of the previous ten campaigns, the side that has led the Premier League table at Christmas, has gone on to win it.
The other two occasions, in 2008 / 2009 and 2013 / 2014 saw the team that was leading the table at Christmas, fail to win the title.
Guess who that team was?
Thought that’d cheer you up!
