This has led to some panic among supporters, with the team already five points behind Premier League title rivals Manchester City. There has also been movement on the transfer front, with a defensive reinforcement arriving and more rumours swirling.
Whoever the Blues do manage to sign, they will be hoping to help the side vastly improve over their next couple of games against West Brom and Crystal Palace. If they do not pick things up, the gap to the top of the league will become more and more difficult for Jose Mourinho’s men to bridge.
