Diego Costa answered his critics in the stands on Tuesday night with two goals that secured a vital three points against Southampton. With a remarkable double still within reach this season, could he take centre stage in final flourish ahead of a move this summer?
It's clear that some Chelsea fans have become frustrated with Costa since the fallout from a proposed move to China last January.
Chelsea's under-18's pulled off another stunning victory winning the FA Youth Cup for a fourth year in a row by beating Manchester City 5-1 (6-2 on aggregate) at Stamford Bridge last night.
Having won the title five times in the last seven seasons, there was immense pressure on Jody Morris' side heading into the game last night.
N'Golo Kante picked up the PFA Players Player of the Year award in London this past weekend and after two stunning seasons in the Premier League I ask the question "Is he better than Claude Makelele?"
I personally believe he is despite both being very different types of players for their teams.
Nobody knew what to expect from Chelsea this season after the disaster of last year in which everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong, but the fact that we are now on the cusp of a potential double speaks volumes of the impact made by Antonio Conte. The charismatic Italian has worked wonders at Stamford Bridge to turn our fortunes around as not only do Chelsea find ourselves within touching distance of the Premier League title, but are now in the FA Cup Final after an enthralling 4-2 win against Tottenham at Wembley.
It was a more recognisable lineup today than Saturday, with Hazard and Costa coming back into the starting eleven. Pedro dropped to the bench in favour of Fabregas who pretty much dragged us over the line after his introduction at Wembley.
Chelsea beat Tottenham with goals from Willian (2), Eden Hazard and a stunning strike from Nemanja Matic to set up the FA Cup Final against Arsenal on 27th May.
I have to be honest, heading into the game after a poor performance against Manchester United last week and with the reported illnesses that had swept through Cobham forcing Gary Cahill into hospital for two days in the build up, I was nervous ahead of this one.
Chelsea take on Tottenham at Wembley this afternoon in the FA Cup semi-final and without doubt, Chelsea's big game players MUST stand up and be counted to win the game.
We simply cannot afford another Manchester United performance as we had to sit there and witness last Sunday. We cannot afford to carry anyone on that pitch this evening and anyone off their game should be replaced as quickly as possible as this game as MASSIVE.
After announcing his impending departure from Stamford Bridge after 22-years, John Terry is line to come in from the cold and Captain the side at Wembley in the FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham.
If you ask any genuine, realistic Chelsea supporter of the defeats we have suffered this season to Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham, Crystal Palace and Manchester United, all of them would say the same thing - Chelsea lacked leadership and ideas.
The speculation surrounding Diego Costa's immediate future has become the focus of attention once again. Chelsea are reportedly losing patience, the Chelsea fans are losing patience and he MUST deliver a big, big performance tomorrow at Wembley.
Having fallen out with people at the club over a lucrative move to China once, Diego Costa has become the focus of an improved offer to the club AND a ridiculous salary offer which is reported to be £650,000 per week.
It's being reported that Antonio Conte and Michael Emenalo are at odds with each other over two reported transfer targets being linked with the club this summer.
Alvaro Morata and Romelu Lukaku have been heavily linked with a move to Chelseafor weeks now with both looking for moves away from their current clubs for different reasons.
The news that we have all expected but, have never want to have confirmed has been announced. John Terry is to leave Chelsea at the end of the season.
John Terry's stats in numbers are as follows 713 appearances, 66 goals and 14 major honours in a glittering career as he leaves us as the most successful Captain in the most successful period in our history.
Chelsea were well and truly beaten by Jose Mourinho's Manchester United side in one of our most disappointing performances of the season.
I can take defeat on the chin if we deserve to be beaten as we were yesterday. I can accept the manner of defeat if we have played our best and have given it our all but have still lost the game.
Antonio Conte locks horns with Jose Mourinho for the third time this season and is looking to make it three wins in a row to increase the gap back to seven points over Tottenham with a win.
Mauricio Pochettino is doing his best to try and ramp up the pressure on Chelsea after Tottenham won against Bournemouth yesterday as stated here, but this Chelsea team under Conte thrive on pressure, we are driven by the pressure to succeed and have a team that deserve to be at the top of the Premier League.
Sold by Jose Mourinho at Chelsea, Antonio Conte has heaped praise on David Luiz for his performances since he returned to Stamford Bridge and believes he is one of the best defenders in Europe.
It was a move that raised eyebrows in England with Chelsea having sold Luiz to PSG for £50m two seasons ago.
Chelsea travel to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United this afternoon and after beating Bournemouth 4-0 at home, Mauricio Pochettino claims Chelsea are now under pressure.
Let's be perfectly honest here to start with, not a single Chelsea fan thought that Tottenham would drop points yesterday lunchtime and we all knew that the gap would be reduced to just four points in the title race.
