There always seem to be this pre-conceived idea that being top of the Premier League on Christmas Day all but ensures you’ll be lifting the title in May.
But it seems it’s something of a myth, which won’t be pretty reading for all those expectant Blues fans who have no doubt got the champagne on ice already.
Of the last 22 Premier League seasons, the team at the top on Christmas Day has only gone on to win the title just 10 times.
So enjoy the moment, Chelsea, because there really is no guarantee you’ll be there in five months time…
