I know this clip will most likely be taken down off YouTube but I wanted to flag it to anyone who may not have seen MoTD or Chelsea vs. Sunderland yesterday.
Now, I am not a huge fan of Ashley Cole for many reasons, but that it another blog post for another day. Despite that, I do recognise skill when I see it and this goal in my opinion is in a different league.
John Terry showed great vision to pick out Cole running into the box who was on the right side of the defender; he rounded another and slotted the ball into the back of the net.
Albeit Sunderland were very poor in this game even Petr Cech could have scored, Chelsea’s performance was simply that of champions in waiting. The title is theirs for the taking now. We all said the African Cup of Nations and losing those players could have an adverse effect, but that is not the case based on this performance.
