It's a question that needs to be asked, should be asked and something we do have to seriously consider. Should we as Chelsea fans be worried about the possibility of relegation this season??

Someone once said of Brian Clough's Nottingham Forest, "They are too good to down". What happened? Relegated. People are now beginning to ask questions of Chelsea this term and it's something the manager spoke of in his press conference ahead of another Premier League draw, this time against Everton. He said:



I agree with Guus, it IS a very realistic threat because right now, apart from Crystal Palace, Chelsea cannot seem to buy a win, take an important three points to take us away from the relegation places and to move us up the table.

The problem is that all season we have been saying to people, "We will get out of it" or " We will climb the table no problem" but the thing is, It just isn't happening. How many dropped points have we had in recent weeks, how many stupid defensive mistakes and how many goals are we conceding.



Our biggest problem this season is that everyone (bar Willian) has been off form so the manager (whether that has been Jose Mourinho or Guus Hiddink) does not know what his best/strongest eleven is or where to play them with Cesc Fabregas being the perfect example. Does he play deep with his ability to ping a pass over the top to Costa a la Everton, or does he played pushed up asking him to influence games in the final third more?

Chelsea need something we have not seen this season and that's a run of victories as quickly as possible but we will only do that if we can sort out our defensive weaknesses that have been exploited time and time again over the course of this season so far.

Look at the last goal we conceded against Everton. It's what could have been the last minute, we have fought back from being two goals down to level up at 2-2 and Everton have a corner. Why aren't we switched on to focus on being organised, pick up our markers and get that ball cleared or at least dealt with at that stage? What happens? We switch off and allow TWO Everton attackers the freedom at the far post to attack the ball unmarked to stab it home to make it 2-3 and what seemed like a defeat! Why aren't we switched on? That's been our problem ALL season.

We can point out that people have been injured, unavailable for whatever reason or out of form but in recent weeks, we have had most of our players back albeit without Falcao and Eden Hazard and dropped points keeps happening from game to game. There is only so much time you have in a season before things like that begin to catch up with you.

We need an established core of players back in the side between now and the end of the season that the manager MUST stick with and build the rest of his side around. We have to find a solution because the likes of Bournemouth and Newcastle seem to be doing that at the moment.



We all believe that we will pull ourselves out of it because we all know what we are capable of (Crystal Palace). When things click into place we can beat anyone on our day and although it seems ridiculous based on the theme of this blog post, I still feel that we will beat Arsenal on Sunday because it's a big game and big occasion.

Chelsea are more than capable of putting a run of wins together to climb the table. Right now, I just want us to do that to finish as high as possible. We need to put to bed any thoughts of finishing in the top four just to focus on ourselves on a game-by-game basis. That's the problem though isn't it. Chelsea are more than capable but we know how different it has been this term.

So come on Chelsea fans or any other fan reading this post for that matter. Answer the question to this blog post:

"Chelsea Relegated - Is it a realistic threat Yes or No?"
