4. Depression and Desperation
Chelsea now have only 8 points from 8 games, and lie just above the relegation zone in 16th. They have equalled their worst start to a season since 1978, a season when they were relegated. Jose Mourinho has lowered his targets, now saying that they could finish fourth this year.
However, no team has managed to finish higher than 5th after this horrific a start to the season. He also said that his team have become fragile, losing confidence easily such as after the first goal in this match. Things are turning against them quickly and the Blues will need something truly magical to salvage this season, it seems.
