This is by far the worst start to a Premier League campaign by a defending Champion and Chelsea do not seem to be getting any better at the moment. Jose Mourinho might have nothing to say but many pundits and players have their opinions about what is going wrong at Chelsea. Stadium bans, fines and a lawsuit coming from an ex-employee? That is only the half of it, plus the fact that there is an actual revolt within the camp and players are not performing up to the high standards they had set last season.
All is not lost for the manager though he seems to be confident of staying at Chelsea and you certainly cannot find someone to replace Jose at the moment. The minimum that Roman would accept is a top four finish by Chelsea and we provide five reasons why they could still achieve this gargantuan task.
- Experience is the key
Jose Mourinho might not have ever faced such a situation in any of the clubs he has been at but the man knows Chelsea better than anyone else and is the most successful manager for the club. Mourinho might not be having the best of times, but he does have a habit of spinning almost every controversy and making it about himself, which he has done impressively this season as well. When it seems that the Heavens are transpiring against Jose every year, the Portuguese does manage to summon his inner energy and deal with all these problems.
