This winning Christmas video of Chelsea players is the only present you need this festive season

Chelsea’s winning run of 10 Premier League games has set them on a course for the title, but a Christmas video from the Blues shows they’re obsessed with winning both on the pitch and off it.

The video begins with some intensity, as new manager Antonio Conte warns: “Intensity, concentration – during the Christmas period the games are relentless.”

But it very quickly becomes apparent that Conte was not just talking about games of football – you big tease Antonio!

Between Eden Hazard playing Victor Moses at Top Trumps (available at every club shop presumably) and Diego Costa engaging in a Guess Who battle, we’re not quite sure where to look.

Of course David Luiz is stood over a Subbuteo free kick at one point – in somewhat unrealistic fashion it goes on target. The magic of Christmas, eh?

It all ends with Conte laughing the laugh of a man whose team will sit top of the table at Christmas this year – is the Premier League gift-wrapped already for the Blues?
