(Video): Pundits hail “huge” Chelsea win that puts Blues a step towards Europe

On Monday Night Football, Jamie Carragher and Ian Wright were asked immediately on half time how big this win was for Chelsea.

“It was huge,” they both agreed.

We’re inclined to agree. It’s only a midtable 6 pointer, but it drags us closer to Europe, keeps the mood good at Stamford Bridge ahead of a run of home games. It takes the pressure off the manager and the players.

It’s not a guarantee of anything, but it takes us one step closer to where we want to be.

  1. For a young squad at a big club every time they figure out how to get a result against a good side it’s a step forward. They weren’t always at their best, especially in the 1st half when they couldn’t seem to play out against Newcastle’s press, so finding a way to win will come as a big learning experience. It was made all the more meaningful because we saw guys like Casadei and Chukwumeka on at the end helping to seal the points.
