Consistent Chelsea Deserve Top Position, Says West Brom's Pulis

The Chelsea #4 is now the first player to record 10 or more assists across six different Premier League seasons.

"It's one more to go, we have two home games and one away so we're in a very good position now", the Chelsea defender told the club's official website.

Alonso doubled Chelsea's lead after 34 minutes when he drilled an angled shot towards goal and saw the ball deflect off Guzan's left thigh and into the net. According to Opta, Leicester had 42.4% of possession last season, the third-lowest in the league, while Chelsea have had 54.2% this season, which is the sixth-highest.

Chelsea can secure their crown by beating West Brom on Friday, but Wenger has no plans to change.

"We had a lot of critics, the new manager came in at the beginning of the season, we won some games but then we lost and there were again a lot of critics".

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger feels that teams battling in Europe and domestically will find it hard to win the coveted English Premier League (EPL) title.

Cesc Fabregas was Chelsea's match-winner, inventively creating goals for Diego Costa and Nemanja Matic either side of half-time at a festive Stamford Bridge.


The Blues won the 2014-15 title under Jose Mourinho, who was sacked for a second time as Chelsea boss seven months later.

"We are very close". "We're still doing the right things, there's no complacency", Cahill said.

"Today is a big step forward. Nothing is done yet and it's a big final on Friday".

"Over the last two seasons, teams who have not big possession have won the league", he told United Kingdom newspapers.

Next it's West Brom and we have to try to win the league on Friday. We must be pleased.

It was a performance which also put them within one win of the English Premier League title. I'm delighted for my players, they deserve this.

"It is important to celebrate our win but also to have great respect and clap this type of situation, because I think this situation only happens in England". "Now, another step to the title". We must focus and prepare well for this game. "Saying that I am leaving, but I am scoring goals, we are on top of the league, we can be champions". We know West Brom are a hard team to play against.
