The Blues put on a thrilling show for home fans at Stamford Bridge on Boxing Day, beating an away squad from West Ham United 2-0. The win keeps Chelsea football club at the top of the 2014 2015 Premier League table, and with just one match left to be played this year, it's likely they will stay there to start 2015.

A Christmas Gift for Fans
Unlike the Spanish La Liga-where competitive play has been on hiatus since last weekend, and will not resume until the New Year-the English Premier League was back up and running on Boxing Day. The Blues took the opportunity to treat their supporters to the ultimate Christmas gift: a big win at home.
Even as Stamford Bridge filled up with fans in the junior Chelsea football kit or adult home shirt, a victory wasn't ensured for the home squad. After all, the away team-from West Ham United-has been playing remarkably well in the 2014 2015 Premier League so far.
After coming in 13th place last season, the Irons from West Ham worked hard over the summer to build a more competitive soccer organization. They've been rewarded for their hard work, spending most of the fall in the division's top five. Their record, too, is impressive: nine wins, four draws, and five losses. Needless to say, as far as away teams go, the Irons are one of the bigger challenges that Chelsea has faced at Stamford Bridge this year.
Still, the Blues are number one in the Premier League right now for a reason. The club has won 14 games this season, with only three draws and one loss in between. And the latest of those victories came against West Ham.
Top Five Talks
For supporters in the Chelsea youth away shirt 2014 2015 or adult Adidas kit, the victory over the Irons was big news. While the Blues have more or less been steamrolling the rest of the Premier League this fall, they have shown slight vulnerability against other members of the division's top five.
Indeed, both Manchester United and Manchester City forced 1-1 draws against the Blues, though both of those games were played away. The game against West Ham was the first time this year that Chelsea has faced a top contender at home, and was more or less a test case to see how the team would handle that unique kind of pressure.
Very well, it turns out. Chelsea has won each and every home game they've played this year, and the match with the Irons was no exception. With a goal from John Terry at the 31-minute mark (assisted by Diego Costa), and another goal by Costa himself at the 62-minute mark (assisted by Eden Hazard), the Blues dominated the proceedings 2-0.
Of course, the people in the stands went wild, from the youngest youth supporters in the junior Chelsea football kit, to the veterans who have been attending games at Stamford Bridge for decades, the atmosphere was the perfect mix of Christmas cheer and sporting exuberance.
The victory over the Irons may have been enough of a holiday gift, but at Soccer Box, we have other great gift options too! From the Chelsea youth away shirt 2014 2015, to player-specific jerseys honoring key footballers like Eden Hazard, our store is stocked with great football gear.
