Chelsea’s unbeaten/winning run has come to an end— Tottenham made sure of that. And we’re not surprised; it was going to happen eventually. I don’t say that because I don’t believe in our team, but because the league is too competitive today for any team to be unbeaten for over 20 games. But now that it’s happened, we have to move on from it, and focus on winning all our winnable games, and keep the momentum going. Obviously, we can’t win all our games, but there are games we can win. We have to get all available points from those fixtures, and keep going.
We’re now in the New Year, and in a few months, the league will be over. It’s mid season, teams get more serious from this point forward, and will capitalize on any error or slip up to overtake you in the title run-in. Fellow contenders, Liverpool, Man City, and Arsenal are lurking behind, and will get closer to us if we let them. Already, we dropped some points against Tottenham, so that cut short our lead over closest rival Liverpool. We have to make sure we get maximum points from those games we can get them from, and battle for draws against the big teams, at least.
This weekend, we take on Leicester in an encounter that is ours for the taking. We must win that fixture if we want to continue our domination at the top of the league, and probably win the title this May. Liverpool take on Man Utd in the same weekend and City tackle Everton. On paper, one of either City or Liverpool will draw at least. If we win, that’s a plus for us. So we have to move on from that unfortunate loss to Tottenham, and focus on winning our relatively easy fixtures, starting this weekend against Leicester.
