The invention of the style of play by the new coach Maurizio Sarri has seen Chelsea keep the ball even more but I have to highlight this system's greatest weakness from what we've seen so far.
Most opponents have created too many chances against the blues. In so many matches this season, Chelsea were just lucky to pocket the full 3 points or even a point. The match against Arsenal, Arsenal created too many chances in the first half enough to kill the game but were wasteful. The match against Newcastle had Newcastle create very few chances in that game but Chelsea created very few too, then against Westham were Yamolenko was left unmarked only to direct his header just wide. And just recently against Manchester United, where the blues were just a few seconds from losing in front of their home fans.

Yes, Chelsea is third on the log, having gathered 22 points so far but from the look of things, that position might not be for long.
The title race is over for the blues as they have let go so many valued points that they should have won. No thanks to draws against Liverpool and Manchester United at home and their inability to stop the opponent from creating too many chances.
Manchester City has not been played yet, Tottenham still left to play, the chances of seeing Chelsea lift the trophy is narrow and with the likes of Liverpool and Manchester city it is going to be very difficult.
