PREMIER LEAGUE – Antonio Conte’s Blues continue to crush the English championship after their success on Bournemouth (3-0) at Boxing Day. On Monday, they signed their twelfth consecutive victory in the championship. A new record for Chelsea.
It was expected: on Monday, Bournemouth did not make the weight against the irresistible Chelsea (3-0). And the Blues, strong in their twelfth consecutive win in the Premier League, took the opportunity to assert their hold on the English championship at the Boxing Day and sign a new record in the history of the club. Before the finish on Antonio Conte’s bench this summer, never had the Londoners signed 12 wins in a row in the Premier League.
Chelsea was without Premier League director Diego Costa (13 goals) and his indefatigable sentinel N’Golo Kanté, but that did not disrupt him in his solo race. After three successes on the smallest of the gaps, the men of Antonio Conte gave themselves more margin to water well the holidays. His Spanish striker was absent, the Italian technician could count on a gala Eden Hazard to energize his attack. At the origin of the opening of the score of Pedro (24th), served by Cesc Fabregas author of his ninety-eighth decisive pass in England (fourth best total in the history of the championship), the Belgian Punctured the screen and made its faces opposite.
The Blues have delighted … except Batshuayi
In all the good moves, the former Lillois obtained and transformed himself the penalty which sealed the fate of the match (50th). He also offered goal balls, not concretized by Willian (58th), Moses (59th) or Pedro (66th).
Generally speaking, the Fabregas-Hazard-Pedro triangle has caused some misery in the Cherries. The first by his knowledge always intact of the pass, the second by his speed and his percussion. The Pedro double also rewards the long-standing will of the former Barcelonan to hurt the opposing defense. Bournemouth side, Jack Wilshere has floated. But the former Gunner, whose talent clearly deserves a more side club, was really too alone. Only in front of Blues radiant, with the exception of Michy Batshuayi, who, even in the absence of Costa, played only a handful of seconds in additional time.
