Never mind events at Stamford Bridge, with Noble, Nolan and Cole all ruled out, today was always about damage limitation, and keeping the score to two meant that was achieved. Our goal difference is still decent and much better than Villa's, Wigan's, Norwich's, Reading's and QPR's. But complacent Hammers who keep insisting we can't go down should study the Premiership table tonight.
This was so nearly the perfect weekend, but late winners for Wigan and Villa, on top of Southampton's victory over Liverpool, mean that nobody is safe up to Stoke and Norwich - and we are beneath them!
It's going to be a nail biting end of the season still. Birmingham thought they were safe two seasons back, and look what happened to them. With Man Utd all but ordained as Champions, there promises to be some freak results involving the teams at the top, and if Wigan can stay focused in the league, I can see them escaping.
And if Wigan aren't going down, we must be in the mix as we are only three points above Villa.
Bloody Pardew and Newcastle. Had they held on for a draw, we could all have gone to bed happy despite the defeat at Chelsea. Instead, there's a few sleepless nights ahead I fear.
