EPL: How Chelsea Won


/ by Editor
Like it or not, the odds are in favor of Chelsea to clinch a second Premier League title in three years, but can we just call it for The Blues?

Tottenham’s defeat to West Ham on Friday night all but ended Mauricio Pochettino’s side’s title race, with Chelsea now needing just six points from their remaining four games to win the title.

The Blues will move seven points clear if they win their game in hand against Middlesbrough on Monday night, and Chelsea could be crowned champions of England for the sixth time at the Hawthorns and would likely lift the trophy in their following home match against Watford on Monday, May 15.

After defeat to West Ham, Pochettino conceded: "If you want to be a champion you have to win. How? I don't know. But you have to win.
"We try to move on and finish the season in the best way, still fighting, but now it's true, it's more difficult."

Taking a look at Chelsea's remaining fixtures, they face Middlesbrough who have had a miserable campaign, picking up just one win in their last 18 league matches and facing relegation back to the Championship. It would be a difficult one for Chelsea to win as Boro have been a deceptively tough nut to crack in matches against the top seven teams.

Against West Brom, most betting sites will make Chelsea the favorite to grab all 3 points considering the Baggies form losing four of their last five games and only picking up one win against the top seven all year. Its going to be tricky when they face Watford on May 15, however Chelsea should be able to escape with a point. On the final day when the Blues face Sunderland its safe to say they'll get whatever result they want.‎

Spurs need Chelsea to pick up a maximum of five points from their remaining four games for any hope in the race for the title.

So, will Chelsea be the English Premier League champions this season? I'll say yes, because all they need is six points from four games, Chelsea are more than capable to deliver.
