The Blues’ run of form has seen them go from mid-table to sitting right behind Jurgen Klopp’s men, which has left them looking like contenders.
Edouard Mendy embraced Reece James as they walked off the field, while Ben Chilwell had Thiago Silva in a playful headlock following Chelsea’s 4-1 win over Sheffield United, emphasising the prevalent feeling currently around the club.
Joy is being felt. Work on the training field is now beginning to show on the pitch, new signings are bedding in nicely and Frank Lampard’s side are racing up the Premier League table ahead of the international break.
Chelsea are now just one point behind the table-topping duo of Liverpool and Southampton, a situation which puts the Blues firmly in the title conversation.
