While Chelsea Football Club remains on top of the Premier League log, the club is nursing a bruised ego along with some unwell players after Sunday’s 2-0 defeat against Manchester United. Chelsea’s preparations for the showdown with long-time rivals Manchester United took an unexpected turn when player Marcos Alonso had to pull out of the staring line-up as he was suffering with a virus. According to reports, Diego Costa and Victor Moses also felt under the weather. Whether this spate of bad health contributed to the team’s lacklustre performance on Sunday is anybody’s guess, but the team will definitely have to pull up its sock if it is to hold its place at the top of the log.
