Facing a difficult away day at West Ham United tomorrow afternoon, our Chelsea supporters are more cautious travelling to Upton Park than they usually are given the Hammers’ excellent start to 2015/16 while in contrast, the Blues’ beginnings have been rather shaky to say the least.
That said, with the Blues unbeaten in their last five match-ups against the side from East London, West Ham United seem to suffer a complex of inferiority when facing the men from across town and our resident Chelsea fans are hoping this will prove to be the case again come 5pm tomorrow.
Still in the bottom half of the table in 12th place at present, at least Chelsea were back to winning ways last Saturday in the Premier League where a comfortable 2-0 victory over Aston Villa gave Jose Mourinho his third league victory of the season so far.
In what has been an incredibly peculiar fall from grace for many members of this obviously talented Chelsea squad, it’s hard to put your finger on why the Blues have slumped so much following their title triumph last season but one thing’s for sure; there’s no room for passengers at the minute.
Jose Mourinho has proved ruthless in recent weeks, dropping both first team regulars Eden Hazard and Nemanja Matic from last week’s victory over the Villains and it’s most certainly a case of every squad member needing to pull in the right direction to grab victories and lots of them to make up ground.
With the January transfer window on the horizon, some fans are hoping the injection of a few marquee signings might save the Blues’ season.
With Metro reporting that Chelsea might rekindle their interest in Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann in the near future, not to mention their previous admiration for his team-mate Koke, we wonder how this duo would fit into the Blues’ team.
Here’s how they might look with the Spanish-based duo both included in the starting eleven.
