Despite being well out of it, to say the least, Chelsea still have a chance to have a defining effect on this year’s title. A win against Arsenal could effectively rule them out of contention (though we also play Manchester City in a couple weeks).
In years past, I would have had great confidence in Chelsea playing spoilers. This time around, I’m just hoping we don’t get embarrassed. Again.
Here we go.
