It was a perfect game - everything went in our direction.But there is no history without titles so if we play fantastic and don't win cups no-one will remember this team.said the task master, Mourinho. Manchester City can close the gap to two points when they host Arsenal at Etihad Stadium on Sunday but as of now, the momentum looks to be with the boys in blue who sit comfortably at the top of the table while remaining cautious all the way.
English Premier League table toppers, Chelsea extended their lead to five points at the top of the table as they routed Swansea City 5-0 in a scintillating display of intelligent football. Jose Mourinho's side put up a splendid display as they condemned Swansea to its worst defeat at home in 24 years. The thrashing started from the very first minute when Brazilian midifelder, Oscar grabbed a pass by Swansea's Gylfi Sigurdsson and slotted it home from 20 yards, past Swansea's goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski. Diego Costa joined in the party 20 minutes later, when he put one past Fabianski after collecting a beauty from Cesc Fabregas. He doubled it later in the 34th minute giving Chelsea a 3-0 lead. Things went from bad to worse for Swansea as Oscar found the back of the net a minute later again and Chelsea was then clearly looking unstoppable. Swansea held on desperately waiting for the half-time whistle to put an end to their misery and when the whistle went off, they trotted back to the dressing room to clear their heads, gather themselves and start over again. Maybe that did help, since Swansea began attacking a lot more in the second half and came close to scoring time and again but denied every time. Then came the deathblow when substitute Andre Schurrle tapped home from Branislav Ivanovic's cut-back. This put the last needle in the coffin for Swansea and they never recovered after that. Mourinho described the game as "Perfect" saying that his players played it amazingly but also warned them not to get complacent as they will have to win titles to be remembered.
