Know everyone's criticizing Costa and rightly so, but some others had shockers as well. I though Pedro was poor and I think that may have been David Luiz's worst performance this season. He lunged in seemingly 5 times trying to knick in front of a pass and completely missed it. Hazard was completely untouchable in the first half but then kind of went off the boil. Cesc didn't really do much in the second half either.

City game is unbelievably massive now. Win and I'll be confident we'll see the job out. Lose and I'll personally be very, very worried looking at Spuds' remaining fixtures and with Kane still to come back soon.

Would be hugely embarrassing to lose the title from where we were.

People are focussing on Diego because he's been rubbish for months now.

The whole team needs to turn up, not just Hazard. We won't beat City if we only 2-3 players on their game and the rest go AWOL.

Who would we beat if only 2-3 turn up? No one I'd have thought.

We have problems but we know that already. Dust yourselves down lads and go again on Wednesday. We'll be with you.

So what exactly does Costa have to do to be dropped? He was so insufferable to watch.

He has to have a deputy who Antonio believes in.

I really don't like Matic. I think he dithers on the ball too much and has no idea what to do with it. 

Got to acknowledge that the bloke is doing what he can for the side but he remains upgrade priority number one in summer.

Since you're too lazy to figure it out...

If Spurs and City (assuming they beat Arsenal) win their next 2 games...they will be 1 point behind us correct? As we are only 7 ahead.

We don't play until 5:30PM next weekend, while Spuds and City would have played their weekend games BEFORE us.

Get it now?

City are 9 points behind us if they beat Arsenal tomorrow, so not really correct. Plus, you're skewing it completely. Ok, we have a game after them but nobody really counts points before a game week is over.

I have never seen so many doom mongers come out of the woodwork....It's as if you thrive on defeat.

It's annoying. So many people seem incapable of forming an opinion on what they see and have seen and rather just stare at results and remain negative by default.

I forgot City have 2 games in hand over us (until tomorrow).

Nonetheless, forget City then. What I said about Spuds is still correct.

Yes but Spuds beating 1 point behind us builds unnecessary pressure in to the Bournemouth game.

Bournemouth will suddenly feel like a do or die. Slip up there AGAIN and we would give Spuds a clear opening to get 1st place.

The same Spurs that finished 3rd in a 2 horse race. I think you're overrating them slightly. They have a nice fixture list but as we've seen, anything can happen in the PL, and they are also without Harry Kane so... chill.

The irony on saying "anything can happen in the PL".

Is Chelsea immune to that or something?

No, of course not. My main point however is that you're overrating this Spurs team, like they won't have a bad patch.

Chelsea have a squad filled with players who have won titles in major leagues and competitions. Same goes for the manager in charge. Spurs can't say that at all.

They ain't winning jack. They had their chance last season and bottled it. They should be happy with CL group stage football.

There's always a first time. Remember that.

As much as I hate Spuds, they are getting better and better. Spuds have a higher chance bottling this, but it is not guaranteed. We don't know what is going to happen next, and that's why we should not rule out Spuds just yet.

7 points ahead now isn't that much of a bigger deal, except that now we have City next.

This City game to me is very important. It's a 6 pointer. City will do everything they can to stop us. Win against City and I can breathe much easier in the following games.

I'm convinced Chels will win the title. I had the same feeling in 14/15 when I had to read and hear posts and sounds of worry. They know and have what it takes to bring it home. If necessary, it will be won in the ugliest fashion. But it will be won. Of course, there's a (slight) chance of capitulation but I just don't see that happening. Not based on what I've seen of Chelsea and the rivals this season.

I'm not saying Chelsea won't win the title. We are by far in the best position to win it. But there's one thing that could ruin it for all of us: Cockiness.

Saying "We have won the league" before we actually win it will come crashing down hard. When we are 1-0 up today, we were thinking the game is already over. The way we breezed through their defense for the 1st goal. Easy. Then players started getting cocky. Our defense was nowhere. 1-2.

Conte is right when he said the league is not won by us. It is FAR from that. Conte needs to go back to these players and tell them the league is not ours. The only team that can stop us winning the league is Chelsea. I don't want any cockiness from the players, and even the fans. Because Spuds (and City) are waiting.

It's not won but it will be won. There's a difference. I can see the work done to get into this position and that hard work will be continued until the end to win it.

I'm going to wait until the City game. Because that's really the game that would tell us if we are fine or not. Win that, and even though Costa will most likely continue to frustrate me, I'll join you saying it's 99% won by us. Spuds is one thing, but City as well could be in the hunt if they beat Arsenal tomorrow.

And we wouldn't want to give Liverpool any late encouragement, would we?
