Jose Mourinho has overworked his Chelsea men and could pay for it

Former Chelsea man Craig Burley breaks down Chelsea's 1-1 draw with reigning title holders Manchester City.

It might not have been pretty but Chelsea achieved their primary objective of preserving their five-point cushion at the top of the Premier League table with the 1-1 draw with Manchester City.

While a victory would have been the optimal result, extending the lead to eight points with just 15 games remaining this season, the risk of seeing it cut to three in the event of defeat ultimately checked their ambitions.

Jose Mourinho was tactically astute in Chelsea's draw vs. Man City

Former Chelsea man Craig Burley breaks down Chelsea's 1-1 draw with reigning title holders Manchester City.

Premier League football has a surprisingly complex attitude toward the simple concept of solidly collecting points.

Arsenal have constantly been criticised in recent years for being tactically naïve, Liverpool were mocked when sloppy defensive work cost them last season's title, and Manchester City's apparent lack of professionalism is often cited as the reason for their occasional struggles.

Yet when Chelsea show tactical intelligence, defend well and conduct themselves professionally throughout...

Chelsea, Man City play for a draw that keeps both teams happy in title race

Saturday's draw wasn't fun for the fans but does help both teams stay in lockstep atop the Prem.

LONDON -- Three thoughts on Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Manchester City in the Premier League.

1. Title rivals share points

There were a reported 650 million people looking on from across the globe but planet Earth may not have been too impressed by an often-turgid encounter between English football's two best teams. Five points remains the gap between leaders Chelsea and Manchester City.

As expected, neither team was ready to bet the farm on the whole affair. Given that their need for victory...

Mourinho's silence speaks volumes as Chelsea, Man City fail to entertain

Under-siege Chelsea retained a five-point lead at the top of the Premier League after repelling Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.
Former Chelsea man Craig Burley breaks down Chelsea's 1-1 draw with reigning title holders Manchester City.

LONDON -- Jose Mourinho had a result he probably accepted, but the world beyond the Special One definitely didn't receive the match it desired. Nor did it get to hear his views on a 1-1 draw in which his Chelsea team held Manchester City at arm's length.

Saturday's game was billed as the "biggest" game of the season so far and could have had a major impact on the title race; sadly, the latest of his self-imposed media blackouts meant that neither he nor any of his coaching staff gave their opinions...

Nemanja Matic superb, Chelsea attack poor in 1-1 draw with Manchester City

Former Chelsea man Craig Burley breaks down Chelsea's 1-1 draw with reigning title holders Manchester City.

Chelsea remain five points clear of title rivals Manchester City after Saturday evening's 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge. It wasn't pretty and it didn't live up to the hype, but in the end, as far as Blues supporters leaving the ground went, it didn't matter. One more game played, one step closer to the title.

The big question before the game was up front. With Diego Costa banned for three games and unavailable to play against Man City, would Loic Remy be able to rise to the occasion? The general...

Can Chelsea cope without Costa? Five questions for Chelsea vs. Man City

Big, big, big, big game in the Premier League. The boys report from Stamford Bridge, speak to Frank Lampard and play a game of snakes and ladders ahead of Chelsea's clash with Manchester City.

Nick Miller asks and answers five key questions ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash between Chelsea and Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.

1. Can Chelsea cope without Diego Costa, and possibly Cesc Fabregas?

The good thing about having the perfect striker for your system of play is that when he's there, things run in perfect, smooth harmony, players neatly complementing each other and slotting together like it was meant to be. The bad thing is, when he's not there then things are thrown...
