Chelsea stumbled in the title race on Wednesday night as they failed to breakdown West Ham’s defence and drew 0-0 at home.
Their title rivals, Manchester City, meanwhile, trashed Tottenham Hotspur 5-1 at White Hart Lane and moved to the summit of the Premier League.
The victory was City’s eighth league win in a row and they still have a 100 percent record from 11 games, scoring 42 goals in the process.
Chelsea are next to try and brake down the fortress Etihad Stadium and having won the reverse fixture, they are probably amongst the few likely to do so.
Chelsea’s Gary Cahill, who is part of the league best defence, believes the game against the league's best offense will be a really tough game for the Blues.
"They're banging goals in left, right and centre. It's going to be really tough," Cahill told Chelsea TV.
"We had a really good result against them at home; away from home (at the Etihad Stadium) they've been so, so strong.
"I suppose it's the ultimate test. It's going to be a really, really tough game.
"We've got to try to look forward to those games and going there on Monday is exciting."
