10 victories and two draws have created a six point gap on second-placed Southampton, and should they continue to progress in the manner they have been, the West Londoners are on course to beat their own record Premier League points tally of 95.
Whilst beating that record would be impressive, becoming just the second Premier League team - and third team in Football League history - to register an unbeaten season would be even greater - and many critics are claiming that Jose Mourinho’s men are well set to achieve such a feat.
An invincible season does require a large amount of luck, on top of all the talent in the squad, and it is hard to see the Blues maintaining their run if they intend to progress well in Europe as well as the League Cup and FA Cup, but they are undoubtedly the most complete team in the division, and, in Mourinho, they have a coach who knows how to traverse even the trickiest of situations.
Mourinho himself has admitted that completing the season unbeaten means nothing in relation to actually winning the Premier League, and Hazard has agreed that remaining invincible is not the most important thing to achieve with Chelsea - but it is certainly something he is dreaming of.
Speaking to the Standard, the Belgian winger said: “Twelve League matches unbeaten is good but we want to make it more.
“We are a very good team this season. Everyone wants to be champions and why not unbeaten?
“It’s a good dream if we can stay until the end of the season with zero defeats. It’s not the most important thing, we just want to play and win games and be in first position at the end.”
The Blues will be keen to extend their unbeaten run this weekend, as they face struggling Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Saturday evening.
