There’s no denying now that Chelsea are in a tailspin. After losing in the Capital One Cup and surrendering their title during the week they virtually surrendered their Premier League title, too, with a defeat to Liverpool.
Jose Mourinho’s men have now lost six of their first 11 games of the season, which is the first time that has happened since the 1978/79 season.
Another interesting little fact about that season is that Chelsea were relegated to the second tier of English football…
Chelsea has not lost 6+ matches in their first 11 league matches since 1978. That season they were relegated to second division.

Though it’s likely that Chelsea will be back on track soon enough, as it stands this will make for some very gloomy reading for Blues fans.
The big question now is do they stick with Jose Mourinho, or take a slice of humble pie and bring back Carlo Ancelotti?
