One of the projects that is causing great disappointment is that of Todd Boehly at the helm of Chelsea, as the London team had a disastrous 2022/23 season and the start of the 2023/24 season with Mauricio Pochettino in command leaves much to be desired. The “Blues” are not in the Premier League and drew against Bournemouth on matchday 5.
It is true that the ‘Pochettino era’ is just beginning at Stamford Bridge, but the poor results between last year and this football year do not put the institution that calls itself the ‘Pride of London’ in a good position. Exit from the English top flight last season meant they managed just one win from their last seven matches, in which they suffered four defeats and two draws.
Now, at the start of the new EPL season, they have managed just one win in five games, in which they suffered two defeats and two draws. Although it is true that they started against Liverpool, then there was a painful fall against West Ham, a win against newly promoted Luton Town, another setback against Nottingham Forest and a draw against Bournemouth (0-0).
In addition, the goalless result against the “Cherries” also puts them in the spotlight, as this result broke a historical record in the Premier League, as 46 games were played in the 2023/24 season and at least one goal was scored in all of them, so this ended at Vitality Stadium and left a very bad taste in the mouth.
Another alarming fact for Chelsea
The “Blues” team barely scored five goals in the EPL 2023-24, equaling the record set in 1995-96, the year in which they finished tenth in the table. It is worth noting that Chelsea will have to give their all in the domestic competitions this year, as one of the consequences of the terrible 2022/23 season was that they were banned from UEFA tournaments.
