Chelsea’s winning streak continues…just about!
Like West Brom last weekend, Sunderland were not expected to pose much of a threat for Chelsea – but they ended up taking Antonio Conte’s men right down to the wire.
In truth, up until the last minute, the Black Cats rarely threatened Thibaut Courtois’ goal – with the Blues looking dominant throughout.
Nonetheless, Costa had an uncharacteristically quiet evening – having to settle for scraps and odd chances, neither of which proved to be very useful for the Spaniard.
It took a wonder save for Courtois in the final moments to seal the points for the Blues, and what a huge 3 points it could be.
In a week where Man City lost, the game has given Chelsea the opportunity to break away at the top of the Premier League – with Antonio Conte’s men now sitting 6 points clear at the summit.
The significance of the game certainly hasn’t been lost on the Chelsea fans around the world – with many of them absolutely delighted with the result.
