At the time of writing, Chelsea had just played out their fifth game under Guus Hiddink’s second interim reign with the Blues still unbeaten in his new spell.
That said, the sheer fact that a West Bromwich Albion side managed to twice peg last season’s Premier League champions back in an eventual 2-2 draw on Wednesday evening was pretty disappointing for a Stamford Bridge faithful who need victories on every occasion now to ensure they get out of the bottom half.
There’s absolutely no doubt that the experienced Hiddink has managed to get the majority of the team playing far nearer to their capabilities over the past month or so and the fact that the losing habit has been arrested is at least something to build upon.
Nevertheless, with Chelsea in 14th place on 24 points and hovering only six away from the relegation zone after gameweek 21, Hiddink has warned his players that the relegation threat is real this term.
At the moment, it’s hard to tell who Chelsea will be moving for in the January transfer window if anybody at all with no real concrete leads at the moment apart from potentially Shakhtar Donetsk’s Brazilian midfielder Alex Teixeira.
That’s why today, we’ve done the hard work for you while sifting through all of the Blues’ January transfer rumours heard by the bar so far while picking out five that we just can’t see happening this month.
