Chelsea are firmly in the hunt once more for a top four league finish, courtesy of a double over neighbours Foolham, with today's victory following hot on the heels of a derby win against Rottenham Hotspur. However, this win was far from convincing. The hapless hosts deserved a share of the spoils after heaping much pressure upon the visitors in the final half hour. I yearn for the days when Chelsea ran rings around opponents, dominated matches, and won comfortably with three or four goals. The current bunch are merely stuttering forward, and they ain't fooling me. At least common sense has prevailed with the first-choice goalkeeper restored to the team, after his much-publicised Wembley stand-off with Sarri.
