Not I've watched pretty much every game. They've still been pretty awful. Apart from Arsenal away, every result since he was sacked has either been ok or poor. WBA, Watford and Everton were all awful results for the league champions. 13 points from 24 isn't too bad for a mid league team who's been struggling, but for a team like Chelsea it's still poor.

Are you LVG?! I'd rather win 4 and lose 4 than draw 8. 'Unbeaten in x' is a fairly meaningless stat.

Chelsea have 10 points from the last 6 games, 4 of them away, with 9 goals scored - they are not meaningless stats and they are a lot better than what came before.

Having watched every Mourinho game for the last two seasons I can assure you I couldn't care less where he goes. This season he was just embarrassing on and off the pitch and if we hadn't started well last season we wouldn't have won the league as we were pretty much as poor for the second half of the season as we have been this term - the difference was Hazard who carried us pretty much on his own.

I respect him for what he has won in the game but you aren't guaranteed exciting football OR results under his management.

I don't think anyone can guarantee results. But he's got a pretty good record.

Leicester play the sort of football we used to be famous for.
It's great to watch.
They play to win, not this play to avoid defeat rubbish we get from all the top teams.
I hope they win the league.

3-0!

Love that Utd 'missed out' on two of City's mega money defenders and they're both ****.

If we beat Chelsea tomorrow we're only 4 points off second place...if we play like we did against Stoke we may actually get a top 4 finish!

...we ain't catching the mighty Leicester though!!

Good game but i worry we'll get punished for not taking advantage of that opening 25.

Still a lot better than what we've been used to this season.

I've seen them given, Blind was lucky to get away with it.

Good game.

Yup. He's a horrible little man.

I can see Chelsea winning this now.
