Chelsea’s downfall continues
Chelsea's Premier League downfall continues after suffering a disappointing 3-1 defeat to Southampton at Stamford Bridge on Saturday night. All empires crumble, but few collapse quite as unexpectedly or as quickly as this one. It’s only five months since Chelsea was crowned champion and it seemed Jose Mourinho’s side might be about to establish a dynasty. But in the aftermath of a fourth league defeat of the season, with Chelsea 10 points off the top of the table and with a defensive record better only than Newcastle, Mourinho looks weirdly impotent.
