If anyone could have accurately predicted the way things have gone this season for Chelsea, they would have been hailed as the next messiah for mankind. Chelsea have been awful this season and lie 16th in the Premier League after 12 games. This is easily the worst start they have had in a long time and is the worst start by a defending Premier League champion.
It isn’t just the way Chelsea have played on the field; off the field there have been a lot of issues which haven’t helped the club. Chelsea will be looking to the Premier League after the international break as Jose Mourinho tries to get the club back into the top four at least, which even he has said will be a difficult task for the Blues.
Chelsea lost their last game before the break and with a couple of crunch ties in the UEFA Champions League coming up; it wouldn’t be easy to tell just how well Jose Mourinho’s side would be doing. Every single time they have been defeated, the expectation is that the Champions will come roaring back in the next game but the Chelsea lion has whimpered like a pussycat this season and we look ahead to their next four Premier League games and predict just how well they might do.
Norwich – Home
Well, at least Chelsea start off with an easy game at home against Alex Neil’s Norwich. It is technically a relegation six-pointer with Norwich just one place above Chelsea, but no one would have imagined such a scenario for either team, well at least not for Chelsea.
Chelsea though should have more firepower than Norwich and barring a miracle, the Blues should get the three points easily but we have said this statement too many times this season and you can’t be sure of which Chelsea turns up.
