With the membership on a seven-match profitable run, there’s greater than sufficient motive to really feel content material.
But whenever you add within the struggles of rivals Tottenham…the season is actually beginning to seem like a promising one.
Mauricio Pochettino’s aspect had been pegged again for the second league sport in succession on Saturday when Sheffield United grabbed a deserved equaliser in north London.
That draw leaves Spurs in 14th and 11 factors off the highest 4.
And Chelsea wasted no time in reminding their neighbours of the hole by reveling in Spurs’ league place on Twitter.
‘A look at the top 14 after 12 Premier League games,’ was the caption on Chelsea’s highly-sarcastic tweet.
The desk had unusually been cropped after the 14th place to make sure that followers may see simply how far Spurs had fallen this season.
Pochettino’s males have a two-week break to mull over their place now because of the worldwide break.
But they face rivals West Ham on the London Stadium after they return, the place they’ll be seeking to transfer away from the relegation zone.
