Chelsea are not easily able to escape from sluggishness. It’s not a crisis yet, but if you’re not careful, relegation to the championship (2nd division) could be right in front of you.
Chelsea are 10th in the English Premier League (EPL) so far in the 2022/2023 season with 25 points from 7 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses. The championship competition has already been pushed back, and now it is impossible to even guarantee the right to advance to the UEFA Champions League (UCL), which is given up to 4th place.
Getting out of the slump doesn’t seem easy either. Recently, it has been sluggish with three consecutive losses, including cup competitions. The FA Cup also suffered the humiliation of being eliminated for the first time in 25 years.
British media ’90min’ recalled Blackpool, who was relegated even after achieving the same results at the present time 12 years ago on the 13th (local time).
Blackpool also recorded 7 wins, 4 draws, 7 losses and 28 points during 18 EPL matches in the 2010/2011 season. At the time, the middle ranking was 11th, but after that, it could not overcome the extreme sluggishness and was demoted to 19th.
Chelsea cannot be compared to Blackpool at player level and squad depth. However, the EPL is more difficult to counterattack from mid- and lower-ranking teams than other leagues. There is no law telling Chelsea not to be like Blackpool. The difference between Chelsea and Everton, 18th in the relegation zone, is 10 points. 바카라사이트
