Chelsea Back on Top of The League Table

Chelsea is back on top of the English premiership table after Manchester united took over momentarily for a few weeks. With 54 points from 23 matches, we are gradually beginning to separate ourselves from our closest rivals. By the time we played our 2 outstanding matches and won, we came back to our deserved position (top of the table).
Now 1 point separates us from Manchester United and 5 points from Arsenal FC, though they have both played 24 matches each while we still have an outstanding match to play. By the time we play and win our outstanding match we would be 4 points clear of Manchester United and 8 points clear of Arsenal who just lost their match to Man U. yesterday. With the rate of improvement under our new coach Carlo Ancelotti, I see us go places this time around. Last time I watched our FA Cup match against Preston FC I couldn’t believe my eyes; Chelsea were playing as though they were Barcelona or even Real Madrid. To say that I enjoyed the free flowing, attacking and entertaining football they played would be an understatement. While our boys dribbled from one corner of the pitch to the other with accurate passes, the Preston players were just running after the Blues as if they were learning to joggle the ball: they were kept in their own half for the better of the game.
I just can’t stop talking about our team; I love ‘The Blues’ with a passion. I love the revolution coach Carlo Ancelotti has brought into our team: our fans now enjoy our new style of play. Sometimes I ask myself whether we are playing better without the likes of Didier Drogba, John Obi Mikel, Michael Essien and Salomon Kalou who went to represent their countries at the African Nations’ Cup tournament in Angola. Looking at it the other way round you see that these guys were enjoying a regular shirt while they were around. The current form of our team has got nothing to do with their absence; rather it has got to do with the great changes our experienced coach has brought to the team.
Having won the UEFA Champion’s league twice with AC Milan and with several domestic titles to his credit, Ancelotti has come to improve upon his record at Chelsea, and there is no better time for us to win more trophies than now. I am wondering if it is not possible for us to win the league, FA Cup and perhaps the UEFA champions’ league this time. What do you think? All we need now is to consolidate on our record and hold firmly to the top of the league till the end of the season then we shall have course to smile.
