The Table Does Not Lie
Oh yes it does and it tells fibbing big whoppers. Chelsea are not a mid table team and if it were not for the preposterous antics of their previous manager they would now be in a top four position.
You have to look at Chelsea's performances now and come to the conclusion that Jose Mourinho could ruin any club with his toxic behaviour. What club would take a chance on him now?
Gus Hiddink has stabled the ship and brought some sanity to proceedings. Hazard is now playing some of his best football again and Chelsea once again look threatening moving forward.
Costa is back to his bastard best and we love to hate him for that.
Manchester United on the other hand seem to be in a state of paralysis. The players are producing sterile football under Van Gaal seemingly to frightened to give the ball away and always opting for the safe pass. It is difficult to see how they are going to get out of this mess without a complete change of strategy.
I'm backing Chelsea to win this game and it wouldn't surprise me in the least if Costa spent the entire game concentrating on trying to get a United player sent off.
23/20 is massive odds for the home team when you can get 73/100 for Southampton v West Ham.
