It is puzzling to many fans and analysts of the English Premier League to explain with accuracy the delicate situation Jose Mourinho and his team are in. At no time in the history of the league a team has won the championship and then finds itself at risk of relegation the next season. But the English Premier League champion, Chelsea, is exactly in the same plight.
With only 3 wins, 4 draws and a long list of losses, The Blues have 16 points at this stage of the competition, which means one point from the relegation zone. With the same manager, the same players who led the team to its victory last season, no one can explain why the team has become so uncharacteristically weak. Will that teach Mourinho to zip it and figure out what to do before it is late? Let’s see.
