Another day, another routine win for Chelsea as Jose Mourinho’s Blue juggernaut rumbles on after Christmas.
The 2-0 win against West Ham bore all the hallmarks of this current season side; an elusive and fluid attack build on the foundations of some rock-hard lynchpins at the back.
John Terry’s goal set the Blues on their way, scoring in his second consecutive game from Diego Costa’s assist. From there on, Chelsea impressed with a kaleidoscope of attacking football, with the brick wall of Adrian doing his darnedest to keep the scoreline respectable.
So… a Boxing Day win for Chelsea. What did we learn? Come have a look…
Sublime finish? Check. Crucial assist? Check. Costa has weighed in with another performance that shows why exactly he will prove the difference between Chelsea and the rest of their competitors this season.
People saying Costa only ‘scores’ should have a word with themselves. One of the most complete strikers in the league. — Dami (@TheChelseaWay) December 26, 2014
Diego Costa has 13 goals in only 15 games this season in the Premier League. #CFC

Something about Jose Mourinho brings out the best of John Terry. Don’t ask us what it is the Special One does – we don’t want the mental images. Either way, JT has two in two now and is showing the kind of form that made him integral to Chelsea’s success with Jose last time round. Strikers (and goalkeepers) beware.
John Terry scores in successive games for the first time in 8 and a half years.

Forget Stoke. Forget West Ham. Chelsea are now the Premier League’s hardest side. That’s even with little Oscar and Cesc floating around.
Willian and Matic. Absolutely stallions. — Dami (@TheChelseaWay) December 26, 2014
Dont mess with Costa and Ivanovic!!!!!!!
