Thierry Henry believes that Chelsea face a ‘tough task’ to retain their Premier League title after grappling for a draw against Newcastle on Saturday evening.

That’s one way of putting it.

With just eight points from seven games, Chelsea’s campaign so far represents their worst start to a league campaign for 30 years and with a eight point gap already in place between them and the league leaders, it would seem like an impossible task rather than a tough one for the whingey one to guide his bunch of cheats to another league title.

And let’s not forget that it was only thanks to Mike Dean that they collected all three points last weekend against Arsenal – they could, and perhaps should, be rooted just above the relegation zone on five points while Arsenal ought to be in second place on goal difference.

Yes. I’m still bitter over last week.
