3. Chelsea’ best performance of the season against the stiffest opposition
This was arguably Chelsea’s best performance of the season in the Premier League, alongside their 3-0 mauling of Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in early January. Branislav Ivanovic put in an impressive performance, grabbing an assist with a defense piercing pass that led to the goal. Cesc Fabregas looked more like his real self and Diego Costa got the goal that made the difference in the end. Nemanja Matic looked better than he has throughout the season and alongside John Obi Mikel the midfield pivot which had excelled last season, seemed to work out.
