Dramatic wasn’t the word the last time Chelsea took the field with an incredible 3-3 draw played out against Everton at Stamford Bridge at the weekend.
With Ramiro Funes Mori striking what he and everybody else thought was a winner for the Toffees in stoppage time, there was still time for John Terry to level up the scores on 98 minutes – a goal that was later revealed as being offside.
The overall conclusion however is that Chelsea are without doubt in a relegation battle and having dropped points to both West Bromwich Albion and Everton home lately, wins for the likes of Newcastle United and Swansea City are only dragging the Blues into further trouble.
A few new signatures would help lighten the mood in West London at the moment but despite Alexandre Pato and Alex Teixeira having been continuously mentioned as potential new arrivals this month, time is running out without any news of concrete bids from the Blues.
That said, tabloids such as Metro are claiming that Pato could still arrive in time to make his debut against London rivals Arsenal at Emirates Stadium on Sunday while Teixeira has welcomed links to the Blues of late claiming he is flattered.
Chelsea fans would like even firmer indications of their potential arrivals but we’re bringing presumptuous today in seeing how they’d fit in in this current Blues starting XI.
