Some forty-eight hours after that monumental win against Tottenham Hotspur, it is fair to say the majority of Chelsea supporters are still walking around with big smiles on their faces.
But it wasn’t just the win that left us feeling elated it was the manner in which it was achieved.
Chelsea, entering the game on a run of four defeats in their last five Premier League games, totally bossed their hosts and if, as Frank Lampard has mentioned before, we’d have been more clinical in front of goal, we could have run out far more handsome winners.
However, after getting the three points on offer and opening the gap up between us and Tottenham to a handsome six points, it is essential that Chelsea kick-on and put together a winning run, starting with the visit of Southampton on Boxing Day.
But, before we banish the memories of that wonderful afternoon at The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, I’d like to share a little secret with you.
It would seem, according to our pre-match poll, not many Chelsea supporters were confident of Lampard’s side getting that much-needed win with 65% predicting that it’d end in a Tottenham win with a mere 29% believing Chelsea would win with the remaining 6% predicting a draw.
Whatever happened to that never say die spirit and belief in the lads?
Chelsea v Southampton?
Chelsea to win!
Southampton to Win!
