So far so good for the boys in Blue.  Well, except for the part where we've yet to find the back of the net.  Familiar story.  Fortunately, Dragovic did find the back of his own net, adding to our leading scorer Own Goal's tally.

Chelsea have had the far better of the play, both in terms of possession and in terms of creating chances.  Unfortunately, Costa's finishing and final touch has let him down so far (also, why not just take the shot instead of trying to win a penalty?!).  But the striker has combined very well with Oscar and while drifting wide is maybe not what we want from the striker, it wouldn't be too bad if somebody made a run to the middle instead.  But neither Oscar nor Fabregas are too keen on doing so.

On far more positive note, both fullbacks have been outstanding, at both ends of the pitch.  Our best chances have been created with them pushing forward in support.  It was Baba's pass that unlocked Willian's run down the right, which led to our goal, too.  They've also been well supported by our wide men in defense, especially Oscar on Yarmolenko, who has been kept very quiet.

So, more of the same, please.  Let's not lose this lead.

COME ON, CHELSEA
