Carlo Ancelotti has said last night after the Arsenal game the following:
"There is a lot of disappointment because the difficult moment continues, We are losing position in the table. We have to wake up immediately. I think we have a possibility to come back and fight for the title but we cannot have this type of performance in the future, We don't have to think about the title, we have to think about moving on from this moment. We have to prepare well for the next game [against Bolton] and try to win.

I don't know. Obviously he (Abramovich) won't be happy at this moment. I will take my responsibility but this is a question you have to ask him, not me. I'm not afraid about my job. Everyone said I did a fantastic job last year. Now people are asking me about my job.

We have to do better, obviously. It's not usual that Chelsea can't win for six games. I'm worried, obviously, because that's six games we've not been able to win. I didn't see the team playing the way we want and we had difficulty playing our football. We're obviously not so confident playing in this moment. I didn't expect this defeat. I was surprised by this performance. I saw very good training sessions this week, so I was surprised by this performance."
So straight away I am left wondering why on earth did we put in this kind of performance?. We had two full weeks to prepare, recharge our batteries and be all set for last night but we never really got started and too many players under performed and have done for weeks now.

If we look at our form it's relegation form and to say this of Chelsea is shocking to say the least. We have sat here for a few weeks now and the only positives we have seen is our first half against Everton when we drew and our second half against Spurs when we drew that one also.

We have come along way to thinking that these are the only positives, 45 minutes of a game we have drawn. The players are the same, yes we have had injuries and people missing but it was only Lampard's first full 90 minutes of football last night whereas Essien and Terry have played and Drogba has played through his Malaria.

I don't think we are in a crisis yet myself but I have to say I am really concerned with how we are playing, how we have been playing and where we find ourselves.

We miss Alex at the back bigtime, Ivanovic and Terry still need time to work on playing together and in my opinion Ivanovic is better at right back at the moment. Mikel hasn't been anywhere near the player he has been, Essien has been a shadow of himself apart from glimpses in the second half yesterday, Lampard needs time to get match fit, Malouda hasn't had a good game for god knows how long and the same can be said of Kalou, Drogba and Anelka.

So I am asking you the fans the question today:
Are we in a crisis?
