Chelsea have now won 11 straight games at home in all competitions: obviosly the team is in a very good form, but behind this run there’s also something else.
According to Eden Hazard this is the “Stamford Bridge factor”: “Yes, it’s significant”. – the Belgian player told Standard Sport – “It’s difficult for the opponent to come here and win games. Do I get that feeling that some teams are beaten before kick-off? Yes. We are playing better than last season”.
“We are in full confidence here on this pitch”. – added Hazard – “You know the fans bring everything, they support us. I remember against Tottenham earlier in the season when they scored, but the supporters kept going, they kept singing. It’s great and we feel very good on this pitch.”
Chelsea’s form this season at the Bridge is very different from last year, when they won just one League game in five months.
