The Blues are reaping the rewards of a change of formation to 3-4-3 and have now won 11 league matches on the bounce.

“As a Chelsea man it is great to see, all credit to everybody there,” Lampard told Sky Sports.
“The manager obviously changed the system after a defeat at Arsenal [Chelsea lost 3-0 in September].
“Nobody would have fancied them to be anywhere near winning the League at that point and now they look the dominant team.
“I don’t like to tempt fate but I can’t see anyone with the consistency to close the gap, so I fancy Chelsea.”
