Chelsea have suffered back-to-back embarrassment in the Premier League, losing 2-0 to Arsenal then 4-0 to Bournemouth.
A third result like that in a row is simply unthinkable.
Let’s not find out what would happen if it were to happen.
17min: GOAL!! CHELSEA! And it’s Higuaín! Another first-time shot from the striker, found on one of his typical inside runs by a fantastic pass from Kanté! 1-0, CHELSEA!!
Chelsea welcome Huddersfield Town to Stamford Bridge on Saturday as they attempt to get their Champions League push back on track.
Maurizio Sarri’s men fell out of the top four in the Premier League in midweek when they lost to Bournemouth, with the stunning 4-0 loss enough to allow Arsenal to leapfrog them 24 hours after beating Cardiff.
The Italian once again admitted that he was having problems motivating the players, and the pressure will only mount on him if he fails to overcome a side surely bound for the Championship next term.
