The blues beaten by Juventus on Wednesday night in the UEFA Champions League, as what looks like a promising campaign is gradually becoming a miserable one. Like two weeks ago, no one would have thought Chelsea will be in this position, having had an impressive start to the new season.
However, two defeats in two games, with no goal scored has seen them dropped from the top spot in the league to third position, with their chances of progressing to the next round of the UCL also hanging in the balance. While many might think two defeats against teams like Manchester City and Juventus should not be a cause for concern, the fact that Chelsea is a top team means there is no room for such error from them, as such, we will analyze why they should panic after suffering two defeats in just three days.
Many top teams across Europe have been in a worse position than this before, this season. The likes of Juventus and Arsenal have lost three consecutive games already this season and now, they seem to be back to their brilliant best, as such, it is almost safe to say Chelsea doesn't have a need to panic. However, when some things are put into consideration, then they might just find a reason to worry and panic. Below, we will analyze some reasons why Chelsea should panic after losing two games in a row.
Early this year, Chelsea's hope of winning the Champions League for the second time in their history intensify, when they observed that events that took place the last time they won have been repeating itself again, however, no one ever thought of what happened after they won the UCL back then in 2012. The reality is that, the last time Chelsea won the UCL, their Champions League winning manager was sacked before the end of that year. It should be recalled that, like this season, Chelsea also had an impressive start to that season, yet things changed midway through the season, which led to the dismissal of Roberto Di Matteo.
In my opinion, the fact that the record that happened that year stand to repeat itself means Chelsea should panic after losing tonight against Juventus. In other words, Chelsea should also panic because most of the players who made the difference for them last season are out of form or are struggling with injuries now, which means things might not get better anytime soon.
