Chelsea, the current Premier League champions, have lost an unbelievable seven of their 12 matches to sit a mere three points above the relegation places in 16th, and sit some 15 points off the pace set by Manchester City and Arsenal.
Responding to the poor start to the season, Chelsea’s Cesc Fabregas branded Chelsea’s season as “F*****”, and admitted his confusion as to what went wrong to Spanish newspaper Marca.
“Things aren’t working out and the results aren’t doing our performances justice. We’re playing better but aren’t having any luck.
“When things are going your way, you flick the ball with your heel and it flies into the top corner, whereas now every piledriver is going off target.
“Either way, we need to get back to winning ways sooner rather than later.”
The fate of Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been repeatedly questioned over the course of the season thus far, with players like Fabregas himself said to be under performing in their positions during this campaign. Despite this, Fabregas has insisted that he still has fate in Mourinho at Chelsea.
“Obviously when you’re not winning things always get said, whereas when you’re winning everything’s rosy. When you’re not winning everything is that much harder, but all of us – the players, fans and the coach – have to pull together and hang tough.
“We’re the only ones who can turn things round. Nobody is going to give us a helping hand. We’re still in a position to challenge the big boys in the Champions League, but in the Premier League we need to get our act together right away.”
Chelsea must up their game after International break in preparation for their home fixture with Norwich this Saturday to try to start salvaging their season. Focus must also be put on their upcoming Champions league group fixture with Tel-Aviv on November 24th at the Itztadion Sammy Ofer.
As it stands, Chelsea are second in their group, with 7 points following a victory over Dynamo Kiev at Stamford Bridge in the second leg of the group fixture. Porto lead the group with 10 points following a successful Group G campaign, beating Tel Aviv, Chelsea and drawing with Dynamo Kiev thus far in the competition.
