Chelsea are my heroes

Chelsea have been doing brilliantly! We beat Schalke 2-0 at home (Champions league), beat Manchester City 6-0 (ridiculous win, I know), 4-3 against Leicester (but that’s League Cup) and today we beat Wigan 2-0 away. Since Arsenal and ManUtd drew at 2 all, we may be able to pull ourselves up the ladder, depending on how Manchester City did. If they won, we won’t catch up, but if not, we may actually pull ahead.

So, I just checked the table. At the end of 03/11 (yesterday):

         
Barclays Premier League HOME AWAY    

1

Arsenal

11 6 1 0 18 6 2 2 0 6 3 +15 27

2

Man Utd

12 5 1 0 12 1 3 2 1 9 5 +15 27

3

Chelsea

12 3 2 0 10 2 4 1 2 8 6 +10 24

4

Portsmouth

12 2 3 0 11 6 4 1 2 12 7 +10 22

5

Blackburn

11 3 2 1 8 5 3 2 0 7 4 +6 22

6

Man City

11 6 0 0 10 2 1 1 3 5 11 +2 22

7

Liverpool

11 1 4 0 10 4 4 2 0 7 2 +11 21

Manchester City moved from 3rd to 6th, and Liverpool moved from up higher to lower. It’s ridiculous. If you’re wondering what all those numbers mean, the first one is number of matches played, then what happened with Home matches, then Away matches. The only thing that really matters is Goal Difference, and Points. If teams are tied for points (3 points to winning, 1 to a draw, 0 to losses), it is up to the goal difference. The number changes depending on how many goals you sore vs how many are scored on you. Sorry, I just love footy.

As a separate question: why is Portsmouth in fourth place, and Blackburn in fifth? That’s mad!! Ok yeah, this post made little to no sense. I’m just thrilled with Chelsea’s performance in the last few matches. It seems as though the slump after the Special One left has been overcome. Personally, I don’t like Avram Grant, but he’s pulled them together and they’ve been doing well.
