Chelsea failed yet again to beat a newly-promoted team on a weekend where their rivals are set to drop points, and despite dominating the whole game against Norwich they couldn’t get past the Canaries well-organized defence.
Chelsea are now out as high as 80/1 to win the Premiership in the football soccer betting odds behind the hot favourites Man City, Man Utd and Tottenham. The odds on the top three could change drastically tomorrow if Spurs can get a shock win at the Etihad Stadium and Man Utd win at Arsenal, but there is little chance of Chelsea rejoining the race for the title now.
Although Chelsea only drew, both Newcastle and Liverpool both surprisingly lost so the Blues have a five-point cushion over Arsenal for the coveted fourth and last Champions League spot, but if the Gunners can take all three points off Man Utd today then that position may start looking a little precarious.
Tomorrow Chelsea may find themselves 13 points behind Man City at the top of the table, and as fans I think we have accepted that the Blues are in a period of transition and we should be pleased if we can stay in the Top Four and try and improve next season.
Do any Chelsea fans still think that we can win any trophy this season?
