Can chelsea do it

Can Chelsea do it?

The record for the longest 100% start to a season is currently held by Reading who racked 13 consecutive wins at the start of the 1985/6 season with wins over Blackpool (1-0), Plymouth (1-0), Bristol Rovers (3-2), Cardiff (3-1), Walsall (2-1), Rotherham (2-1), Brentford (2-1), Swansea (2-0), Doncaster (1-0), Chesterfield (4-2), Bolton (1-0), Newport (2-0) and Lincoln (1-0) which led them to winning the old Division 3 title.

This year Chelsea have made a great start with wins over Hull (2-1), Sunderland (3-1), Fulham (2-0), Burnley (3-0), Stoke (2-1) and Tottenham (3-0) to sit proudly at the top of the Premier League table, but can they take the record?

In order to take the record away from Reading, Chelsea will need to win their next eight games, do they have a chance? I’m not so sure…

First up is a trip to Wigan, which I dont think will cause to many problems, but then there are tricky games against Liverpool (home) and Aston Villa (away). After these, (probable) wins against Blackburn and Bolton, lead in to a vital, possible title deciding home game against reigning champions Manchester United.
Should they get through that with their 100% record intact, a home pairing against Wolves should see the Blues match the record in front of their own fans.

And then there’s the big one…..

Would Carlo Ancelloti be able to gee up his players enough to outfox Arsenal at the Emirates stadium to take the record?
I think a certain Monsieur Wenger may have something to say about that…

Here’s how I see it unfolding:

Wigan 0 Chelsea 2
Chelsea 2 Liverpool 1
Aston Villa 0 Chelsea 1
Chelsea 3 Blackburn 0
Bolton 0 Chelsea 2
Chelsea 3 Manchester United 2
Chelsea 2 Wolves 0
Arsenal 1 Chelsea 1

In short, I think that the Blues will match the record but not beat it, but if you want to get some Chelsea souvenirs to celebrate (possibly) equalling the record anyway, visit www.footballbits.co.uk for a huge range of officially licenced souvenirs and gifts.
