Manchester - By mixing attacking verve with defensive resilience, Chelsea has been a class apart in the Premier League and can win the title on Sunday with three games to spare.
A victory over Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge will seal the title for Chelsea, which has lost only two games and is on course to register the second-highest points total in the 23-year history of the Premier League.
A 13-point lead demonstrates Chelsea's supremacy this season.
"I think we are what every team would like to be," said manager Jose Mourinho, who is on the brink of winning his third English league title with Chelsea but his first since returning for a second spell at the club in 2013.
Chelsea also won the League Cup this season.
Mourinho has molded an almost complete lineup, with the off-season additions of striker Diego Costa and central midfielder Cesc Fabregas filling the most vulnerable areas of the team.
Chelsea blew opponents away with its attacking brilliance in the first half of the season. With injuries and fatigue creeping in, the Blues have been more pragmatic in the second half but the results haven't dipped — they are unbeaten since January 1.
"This was the month when people were waiting for Chelsea to slip up, to lose one game or draw," Mourinho said after Wednesday's 3-1 win at Leicester.
"We were phenomenal tactically, with team spirit, the way we defended, the way we were clinical with our goal and the stability we showed in every game."
Chelsea has 80 points and can achieve a maximum of 92, which would be second to the league-high of 95 — set by Mourinho's title-winning Chelsea team of 2004-05.
