The games are coming thick and fast for Chelsea…

With the festive period just getting underway, Chelsea are set to embark on a pretty difficult and consistent run of tough games as 2016 draws to a close.

The first game came earlier today, with the Blues taking on West Brom in a game that proved to be far more difficult for Antonio Conte than he likely expected.

After dispatching the likes of Man City, Everton and Man Utd with relative ease in recent weeks, it was the Tony Pulis-led side that proved most difficult to break down for Chelsea – with the Blues relying on that man again, Diego Costa, to seal the points on a tough Sunday afternoon.

In a few months time, we could be looking back on the game as a crucial one in the title race, with the win coming alongside a Man City loss earlier in the weekend.

Given the importance of the game, it is undoubtedly one that Chelsea fans will not forget in a hurry – and just in case you missed the game, you can relive the action over the next 11 slides with these 11 images that sum up Chelsea’s 1-0 victory over West Brom…
