It’s been a dismal season for Chelsea fans – and it doesn’t get any better with today’s news that the Blues are now statistically the worst Premier League champions in history.
Leicester City replaced Chelsea as title winners earlier this week when Guus Hiddink’s side held Spurs to a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea’s form has marginally improved since they sacked Jose Mourinho in December but today’s 3-2 defeat against Sunderland means the highest they can finish is 9th.
Blackburn Rovers (1995/1996) and Manchester United (2013/2014) have both suffered dreadful falls from grace in the past having won the league the season before but both sides managed to finish 7th in the following season.
Hiddink’s side face Liverpool and Leicester in their final two games of the season but they know that they cannot finish higher than 9th – meaning they’ve provided the worst defence of the Premier League since its conception in 1992.
