Chelsea’s performance is quite up and down despite changing generals. The Blues once had a 3-game losing streak against Arsenal, Brighton and Newcastle in the Premier League. After the 2022 World Cup, teacher and coach Graham Potter returned with a victory over Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge.
However, they continued to be dragged back to the ground when only getting a 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest. Therefore, Chelsea must win against Man City in the match that takes place on the morning of January 6 if they do not want to close their hopes of reaching the top 4.
However, with the force seriously damaged, Chelsea could not make a story against Man City. Riyad Mahrez’s single goal engulfed the Blues.
Witnessing the defeat, former player Chris Sutton commented: “Chelsea, for over 20 years, have been a team that has won big titles and now, they look far away from that.
They spent a lot of money and you feel sorry for Potter when the key players are absent tonight – Mason Mount, Ben Chilwell, Reece James, Raheem Sterling. But really Chelsea is not good enough.
I don’t think anyone expected Chelsea to win this game. They are not the same football team as before, and How long will Todd Boehly wait for Potter? It’s hard to know where this is going.”
