Recent away defeats to Aston Villa and Crystal Palace have left Chelsea with an uphill task to win this year's Premier League. Some have even gone as far as saying they are out of the race for this season's top English prize.

However they are only two points behind current leaders Liverpool and would be four points behind Manchester City should they win each of their games in hand. However, Chelsea's run in is favourable and only the trip to Liverpool looks challenging on paper. Liverpool have tough tasks at home to both Chelsea and City, and City themselves have two tricky away ties in Merseyside - at Anfield and Goodison Park where they will face a high-flying Everton who look incredibly composed under Roberto Martinez.

If Chelsea carry their good European form into domestic games, starting with the trip to Swansea on Sunday, they still have a decent chance of lifting the title in May. They are rightly considered outsiders, but Jose Mourinho's 'little horse' still have every a chance of success.

This season has been full of twists and turns and as Chelsea's recent troubles have shown, anyone can beat anyone in the Premier League.
