The first thirty five minutes of last night’s game were as good as you’d find anywhere in the Premiership. We held our own and looked dangerous when attacking and solid in defence. Tevez’s goal seemed set to spark the type of display which could even have led to West Ham winning. But it was not to be. Within thirty second we had fallen behind due toi a terrible defensive error by James Collins and some neat finishing by Shaun Wright-Phillips. From then on it was just a question how how many Chelsea would score. Carlos Tevez seemed to be playing in his own at times, appearing at left back, right back, central midfield. You certainly couldn’t fault his effort. We just went through the motions in the second half. Our only chance now is to win our next three games, and we’d end up on 38 points. That could – just could, be enough, but our goal difference is so horrendous that we’d probably need a point at Old Trafford. Not likely, is it?
