Boxing Day in reality isn’t a day for Boxing, as the name suggests; rather it’s a day after Christmas meant for sharing and giving gifts; it’s about family, love and giving.
However, Chelsea Football Club have another definition of Boxing Day. Boxing Day isn’t a day we give gifts, rather it’s a day we deal with opposition teams and make them suffer.
Many teams have played Chelsea on Boxing Day hoping to get a win, but all have been unsuccessful since 2003. Since the 4-2 loss to Charlton Athletic back in 2003, Chelsea have never lost a Boxing Day fixture.
In the last 5 Boxing Day fixtures, Chelsea have won 4 and drawn just once, which was last season’s 2-2 draw against Watford, and we all know that season was a terrible one for the club.
Surely, any team who gets to play against Chelsea on Boxing Day will be sure of one thing — you can never win.
