Top 10 Reasons For Chelsea’s Poor Performance This Season

2. Horrible Defending


When two of your star defenders start to age in reflex, you have a big problem on your hands. Gary Cahill turned 30, Terry turns 35, Ivanovic will soon turn 32 and soon all major defenders are becoming slow, and in Premier League, you can play with one leg, but you can never be slow! Also, even the midfielders of Chelsea are too slow on pressing opposition players to make mistakes. The way football works is that your teammate forces the opponent to play a bad ball and you win it from them to regain possession- and this philosophy seems to be forgotten in Chelsea. This is why you have players like Oscar, Fabregas and Hazard absolutely forgetting their defensive responsibilities.
