Chelsea started the season on fire, keeping clean sheets and scoring enough goals to beat most teams.
However, their form has dropped since then and they now find themselves lagging behind in the title race.
One of the reasons for this has been their lack of ability to finish out games after taking the lead.
The Blues have dropped 11 points from winning positions already this season. That is 1 more than the 10 they dropped from the driver’s seat for the entirety of the last campaign.
Game management has been an issue and the lack of quality options on the bench in recent times has also played a part.
The Blues will need to start grinding out some results if they are to have any chance of getting back into the title picture.
