Another game, another victory for Chelsea as they continued their phenomenal run of form with a 3-0 victory over Everton. They played two hours before Tottenham Hotspur vs Arsenal kicked off, and did their bit by picking up three points.
After a goalless first half, it seemed that there were nerves in the Chelsea dressing room as they are closing in on their second crown in three years. However, the way they responded in the second half showed why they deserve to lift the Premier League title.
Pedro opened the scoring for the Blues in the 66th minute with a wonderful long-ranged effort before Gary Cahill and Willian scored within the span of seven minutes towards the dying stages to secure a 3-0 win for the London outfit.
Here’s how the Chelsea faithful reacted to their convincing win:
Fabregas' ninth PL assist of the season. He's got more than any other Chelsea player despite just 10 starts. The best sub in the league #cfc

It's not inconceivable that Chelsea could celebrate their title success in a house party watching Leicester get a point at Spurs.

I never thought we would have a manager who is so loved by everyone. To come back from last season and be where we are now.
Thank you Conte

Lesson, in case it wasn't learned years ago: never, ever rely on Arsenal for anything. Chelsea will amply win this title without assistance.

The fools who think Spurs deserve to win the league have forgotten about Chelsea's 13 game winning streak.. 🙃 What a season. #sourgrapes

Romelu Lukaku has been linked with a move to former side Chelsea, and this could have been the perfect audition for him to impress against his potential future employers. However, it was far from it as he struggled to find a way past Chelsea’s back three, and endured a torrid time.
Lukaku with a wonderful performance for Chelsea today. He'll hope to carry on that form when he actually re-signs for them this summer.

Our first clean sheet in 3 months comes against a side containing Lukaku. Coincidence? I think not

Lukaku got pocketed by yet another top 6 side

Romelu Lukaku has now failed to score in his last 6 Premier League games against Chelsea.

Can we all agree we don't want/need Lukaku now?

Everton want £100 million for Lukaku. Not seen anything to suggest he's worth that? What do you think?
