It’s funny how things can change so quickly in football. Not long ago, Chelsea were being touted as one of the favourites for the title, after an amazing run of form that saw the Blues go on a 17-match unbeaten run in all competitions.
But after back to back defeats against Everton and Wolves, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has been faced with more reasons to worry than celebrate.
A more worrying stat is that despite Chelsea’s form that saw the club maintain third spot for weeks, the Blues are yet to win against a team in the top half of the table so far this season.
In the six games played against top 10 opposition, Chelsea have drawn 3 and lost 3 of their 6 games.
Also, the Blues have even struggled to get goals in those games against top half opposition, as Chelsea have only scored 4 goals in the 6 games played against top 10 teams, 3 of which came in the draw against Southampton.
Chelsea’s defence which has been hailed in recent weeks, have conceded 8 goals in the 6 games against the top 10 teams, despite the clean sheets in draws against Manchester United and Tottenham.
Unsurprisingly, Chelsea have won 6 out of 7 of their games against sides in the bottom half of the table, which is a somewhat positive news as Chelsea usually beat who they ought to. So now, it’s time to work on getting the wins against the top half teams.
