The Champions of England have taken an almighty fall this season and there is no recovering from that. Chelsea lie 13th in the table and are 17 points behind Manchester City who are in fourth position, barring a miracle they wouldn’t make it into the Champions League and it would be extremely hard for the Blues to even make it to the Europa League spots.
While the entire season has been regarding Jose Mourinho’s incredible meltdown at a club that was supposed to be his home, a bit of the blame also goes on the players for not doing their bit of playing to their ability.
Only Willian was the saving grace for the team that has played miserably for a good part of the season and Guus Hiddink’s time has shown that players can do the right things if given the right sort of coaching.
However there are a few players who cannot be saved from the chopping block that is sure to roll next season. Here are three players who should be sold in the next transfer window.
An obvious choice at the moment, Ivanovic hasn’t had the greatest of seasons for the Blues and his start to this campaign was atrocious as he was gutted inside-out by most wingers in the Premier League. The Serbian’s lack of pace was exploited a lot and although he has put in a few good shifts since Guus Hiddink took over the club that hasn’t helped him all that much.
Ivanovic does not look like the player who was a rock for the Chelsea defence last season and the sooner the 31-year-old leaves Chelsea, the better it would be for them.
