Chelsea began the 2021/2022 season as European champions and are heavy favorites to win the Premier League. They have continued to establish themselves as legitimate title contenders as the season has progressed.
Chelsea's fate in the Premier League title race is determined by a few key games. A grueling December period awaits, with matches coming thick and fast, and titles have been lost and won in the winter as well.
When Chelsea has the opportunity to extend their lead over their opponents, there will be plenty of opportunities. The Premier League is unpredictable, with any team capable of defeating another on any given day. However, if everything goes their way, there are a few crucial matches that could go in the blues' favor.
Here are the four games that Chelsea must win if they are to win the Premier League this season.
The Blues will travel to West Ham United in early December for the first of several crucial games. The Blues will be tired from their away game against Watford on December 2nd, and they will visit London Stadium on December 4th, 2021.
West Ham United defeated Liverpool in a tense match, causing one of the biggest upsets in the Premier League this season. Chelsea and West Ham United are both good aerially, so it will be interesting to see how they attack and defend from set pieces.
Chelsea vs. Liverpool has always been an exciting match, and the fact that it will have significant implications for the Premier League title only adds to the intrigue. Despite having one man down due to a red card, Liverpool were unable to take all three points when the Blues visited Anfield in August.
Chelsea will benefit from this because Liverpool will visit Stamford Bridge on January 2nd, 2022. They will want to make Liverpool regret not winning the reverse fixture. Both teams are dealing with injuries, and their hectic December schedules may tire them out before the match.
However, three points in this game could be a huge step forward for the Blues in their pursuit of the Premier League title.
Chelsea will play Manchester City on January 15th. As things stand, only one point separates the two teams, and City already defeated the Blues in the reverse fixture.
Tuchel understands that a defeat at the Etihad Stadium must be avoided at all costs. Guardiola disarmed his strategy at Stamford Bridge, and the German will have to think outside the box to stop the city side at home in this crucial Premier League match.
Manchester United earned a point against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge over the weekend, while Chelsea were unable to maintain their three-point lead over City.
When the Blues visit Old Trafford in May 2022, this same game could have a significant impact on the Blues' title race.
Even until the final game of the season, the Premier League has its twists and turns, and Chelsea will want to avoid a loss in the season's penultimate game.
