Chelsea have a ten point lead over the rest of the pack with ten games remaining. Barring a monumental collapse Antonio Conte’s side will be lifting the league trophy by May.
Six of the Blues’ remaining matches will take place at Stamford Bridge. The most significant are third place Manchester City on April 5th and second place Tottenham on April 22nd.
Challenging road contests include Manchester United on April 16th and a trip to Goodison Park to face Everton on April 30th.
Chelsea have four remaining matches against teams in the lower half of the table including Crystal Palace, Middlesbrough, Bournemouth and Sunderland.
Unless Man City and Spurs defeat the Blues, there’s no doubt that Chelsea will be back in the Champions League next season as champions of England.
