For the first time in a hell of a long while, Chelsea are in something of a club crisis.
Having earned just four points from their first five Premier League games, the champions currently trail early pace setters Manchester City by a whopping 11 points causing many to believe that their title challenge is over already.
With Jose Mourinho looking like he didn’t know whether to laugh or cry in his post-match interview after the Blues’ most recent loss to Everton on Saturday lunchtime, the Portuguese manager wryly claimed that people are enjoying his current downfall.
Having not been in this position in his career before, it is uncharted territory for Mourinho but surely he is the man to turn it around having worked so many wonders with the club he has such a deep association with.
So far this term, many Chelsea supporters have vented their anger at the likes of Branislav Ivanovic, Cesc Fabregas and strangely Diego Costa and Eden Hazard who have been uncharacteristically average too.
With the whole squad seemingly in disarray at the moment, it will take some psychological shift to get the Blues firing again and with London rivals Arsenal next up at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, there is no manager Jose Mourinho would love to beat more than Arsene Wenger in order to kick-start his troops.
While it is largely confidence based with players such as Ivanovic and Hazard still representing class players, we’re looking a little deeper today while selecting five Chelsea stars who we deem to be overrated.
