Here. We. Go.  Will the gap to Arsenal be 7, 10, or 13 points after this one?  Only one of those keeps this title race alive, barely, on life support.

UP THE BLUES!

Well, that's certainly a new and different solution to the striker injury problems.  Oscar as the nominal center forward?  Hazard?  Or somebody else?  Your guess is as good as mine.

Let's go!
