Chelsea = 2 man team?...

Is it not amazing given how much money has been spent building Chelsea's galaxy of stars that at present and for most of this season they've effectively become a two man team? I refer to Didier Drogba and John Terry, I adire both players greatly, unlike many of our revisionists in the media like Andy Gray who's spent the last two seasons saying 'all Chelsea need is a goal scorer'... The Ivory Coast striker has arguably been the best player thus far in the Premier league this season, the only other player who might have a claim to that title is United's Ronaldo.

However, the interesting thing is without John Terry in that Chelsea back four, the Blues have been leaking goals for fun, six in the last four games - this is very unlike the champions.

Following the 2-2 Boxing Day draw with Reading, Jose Mourinho hinted that Terry may require surgery, if so that will be a massive blow to Chelsea's hopes of retaining the title for a third time and of course it also reduces their chances of lifting the big one - the Champions League. It also makes both competitions a lot more interesting for all observers of the game. It is also true to say that United have relied heavily on Ronaldo this season and should he get injured then the Reds will be in trouble. Right now there's nothing between these two sides, apart from the narrow four point lead, Terry's injury has changed things dramatically in terms of who will lift the title, a lot depends on his back injury. But if United sign Hargreaves and a striker in January I'd make United slight favourites to win back the title. Time will tell.
