Chelsea are closer the the relegation zone than they are to Premier League leaders Manchester United right now.
Jose Mourinho’s Blues have only won two of their first seven league games this season, leaving them 15th in the table on eight points.
A second-half comeback saw Chelsea salvage a 2-2 draw at Newcastle United on Saturday.
Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville – a former Manchester United captain – called Chelsea’s first-half display “ridiculous”.
Speaking on Monday Night Football, Neville also said that Chelsea’s form can no longer be described as a “blip”.
Chelsea have conceded 14 Premier League goals this season. Only Sunderland have a worst defensive record.
At the other end, the Blues have hit the net 11 times, using nine different scorers, as well as benefiting from two own goals.
