Chelsea’s atrocious stat in 2023


By: Manu Tournoux

Chelsea fans may have ordered a completely different gift, but they shouldn’t have been surprised. On Sunday, the Blues fell again in the league, this time against Wolverhampton (2-1). If Christopher Nkunku scored on his debut in the Premier League, his goal arrived far too late to allow his team to take the 3 points. However, the London club had opportunities, particularly in the first half, to take the lead, but Raheem Sterling decided otherwise.

On arrival, a new defeat. The 8th in 18 days this season, the 19th, in 2023. According to Opta, Chelsea is also the worst team in the Premier League over the calendar year with 19 losses in total. Even clubs like Crystal Palace, Everton and Bournemouth are doing better. In fact, only Almeria (24 defeats), Werder (20) and Empoli (also 20) have lost more than the Blues this year. A frightening statistic compared to the scale of the London club, even more so given the XXL spending made by Todd Boehly and his team. In 2024, Chelsea will have to get back on their feet and try to regain their splendor at the risk of experiencing another difficult season, which could cost Mauricio Pochettino the place.
