CHELSEA NET WIN

Chelsea showed yesterday night that Manchester City is not unbeatable at Etihad. The Blues secured a hard fought 1-0 win over the Citizens to completely open the race for the title.

That defeat brought City down to no. 2 in the table. Now, they are levelled with Chelsea as far as the no. of points is concerned. Arsenal has got a couple of points more and they have again become the table toppers.

So, the difference of points between the teams which are positioned at the top three places is almost nothing now. Any of those three can win the crown.

CLEAN SHEET

Chelsea kept clean sheet against Arsenal and remain two points behind the leaders Liverpool. They were involved in a 0-0 draw with the Arsenal at the Emirates on Monday night. As a result, the top four teams are separated by just two points.

This was an extraordinary defensive performance from Chelsea, as they did not allow Arsenal to create much chances over the course of the match. This performance was necessary for Chelsea given that they have been conceding a lot of goals of late. This has resulted in losses against teams in the lower half of the table like Stoke City.

NO DOUBTS

John Terry's future at Chelsea was under major doubt after he play regular football under interim manager Rafa Benitez.

His form was also one of the reasons for the constant omission by the Spaniard, but he has found himself as one of the important players at Chelsea this season. He has attributed this return to form to manager José Mourinho who has came to the club for a second spell. Terry enjoyed a great relationship with Mourinho during the first spell. He became one of the best defenders in the world during this period.

TERRY HAPPY WITH MOU

Chelsea defender John Terry would have been happy to see the return of José Mourinho to the club, but the latest revelation by the Chelsea manager may not have been such happy news for the Chelsea captain.

Terry spent majority of the last season on the sidelines after his injury problems meant that manager Rafa Benitez did not pick him for most of the league matches. Despite being a first-team regular and huge influence at the club for the last decade, Terry found himself consistently on the bench.

BENITEZ ON WAY OUT

The manager of Chelsea, Rafael Benitez, has admitted that he will not continue as Chelsea manager after this season, but, he refused to talk about his successor.

Benitez was appointed as Chelsea manager in November last year after the club had decided to sack Roberto Di Matteo because of a few losses.

There have been rumours since the last few weeks that Jose Mourinho might return to Chelsea as the manager. Mourinho himself said in one of his recent interviews that the English clubs love him and he might be returning to England in the next season.

WE MUST QUALIFY

John Terry has said that the players of Chelsea must make sure that the team will qualify for the Champions League of next season.

Chelsea was the winner of the Champions League in the last season. So, it qualified for the Champions League 2012-13 automatically despite finishing at no. 6 in the Premier League points table in the last season.

BENITEZ UNSURE ON TERRY

The Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez has said that he is not sure when the captain and defender John Terry will be able to return to first-team action. The 32-year-old defender has been out of the first team action for a long time.

His last match was against Liverpool in the Premier league, in which he suffered a horrible collision with the Liverpool striker Luiz Suarez that has left him out of action for a long time. It was heavily expected that the defender will be part of the club's trip to Japan to play in the Club World Cup, but he failed to recover sufficiently in time.

TORRES NEARLY JOINED CITY

The Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has revealed that the club became extremely close to signing the Liverpool striker Fernando Torres before Chelsea managed to sign the Spaniard for a British transfer record fee of £ 50 million in 2011.

TERRY MAKES FIRST TEAM

The manager of Chelsea, Roberto Di Matteo, surprised everyone by not including the team’s skipper, John Terry, in the starting line up in the match against Stoke City which was played at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Terry was expected to be a part of the first XI and everyone got surprised when Terry’s name didn’t appear in the list of the players who were going to start the match for Chelsea. The skipper came to play as substitute in the 89th minute of the match.
