Does This Graphic Prove Chelsea Are Set To Win Premier League?

Annoyingly, it looks that way.

It's only November, but this graphic highlighting Chelsea's points accumulation at this stage in the season for the past 20 years suggests the Blues are well on their way to a fourth Premier League title.

Indeed, not only is this Chelsea's best ever start to a Premier League campaign, the London club have gone on to clinch the title each time they've picked up 30 points or more in the opening 12 games.

The other occasion when they clinched top spot came in 2004/5, with the side sitting on 29 points after nearly a third of the campaign gone.

There's still plenty of time to go, but this image should certainly be encouraging viewing for Chelsea fans.
