8. Miserable Pre Season Forms of Players
Chelsea had the worst start to their 2015/2016 campaign- thanks to their terrible pre-season. It was visible to everybody present inside the stadium that Chelsea were no longer possessing the quality that made them champions. Their passes became their opponent’s strength, they were vulnerable to counter attacks and a lot of players simply lacked the enthusiasm to play. They did not compete for the ball once they lost possession, strikers had no defensive duties and to top all, Diego Costa came into the preseason overweight! But at that point of time, we thought it was all because of the season break that caused this slump of form from players, but turns out- it wasn’t!
