Chelsea shows signs of decline with 2 consecutive defeats. They have not won a team in the top 10 Premier League this season.
Statistics about Chelsea surprised many fans. This season, teachers and students Frank Lampard has failed to defeat any opponent in the top 10 of the Premier League, or more precisely, from 11th place up. Chelsea after two consecutive defeats against Everton and Wolves were knocked out of the top 4. They won 22 points after 13 games and 6 points behind the top.
Chelsea lost 2 consecutive games and got out of the top 4
Statistics show that Chelsea did not win against any team ranked 11th in the Premier League. They lost to Liverpool in September and suffered consecutive defeats against Everton and Wolves recently. Besides, the Blues were drawn against Southampton, MU, and Tottenham. The rest, Chelsea beat Brighton, Crystal Palace, Burnley, Sheffield United, Newcastle, and Leeds – all in the bottom half of the table.
When not winning any big team, the position of Chelsea’s championship candidate is being questioned. Former MU player, Paul Scholes recently commented that the Blues are not ready to win the Premier League.
Kante caught the ball strangely as Chelsea lost the second consecutive match
N’Golo Kante made fans scratch their heads in the Chelsea defeat to Wolves when catching the ball from a teammate’s throw-in. Chelsea led 1-0 for more than an hour but let the Wolves come back to win at the last minute. But the strangest moment happened in the 15th minute. Midfielder Kante seems to completely forget how to play the ball.
Chelsea lost to Wolves at the last minute
Olivier Giroud had previously given Chelsea the lead with a sixth goal in their last 5 matches. But Daniel Podence equalized when Frank Lampard’s team played underpower in the second half. In the end, Neto brought all 3 points to Wolves with a thunderous left-foot kick that beat goalkeeper Edouard Mendy.
Failure meant Chelsea missed the chance to take the top spot in the Premier League after Tottenham and Liverpool both dropped points at the weekend. However, the most worrying thing is that the Blues have lost 2 consecutive matches after being unbeaten 9 rounds earlier.
