Former Chelsea star terrified of relegation this season as he provides 'proof' with damning stat | The Sun
CHELSEA have had a shocking start to the season and one former player is convinced that it’s only going to get worse after citing a damning stat.
Jason Cundy has said he thinks The Blues could be relegated after realising that their current form would see them go down if things don’t change.
Chelsea have taken just five points from their opening six games in the league this season.
And despite their stacked squad they have just four Premier League wins in the entirety of 2023.
Cundy, who played for the Stamford Bridge outfit for four years, spoke about his concerns on TalkSPORT.
He said: “Chelsea’s points per game over the last 35 matches, which is three short of a full season, is 0.8.

“That would get you relegated in every single Premier League season, and have you finish bottom, or joint-bottom, in seasons 1997, 1998, 2005, 2009, 2011, 2014, 2015, 2018,
“That’s what our points tally has been. We know that’s not how football works across two seasons, we’ve won two league games since Graham Potter left. Let that sink in, we’ve won two league games.”
The damning stat has means that Mauricio Pochettino’s side are dancing on the wrong side of probability and will need to shake things up as quickly as possible.
Cundy went on to say that he is genuinely concerned about his former club going down and that despite being one of the biggest teams in the country, he believes they can still lose their top flight status.

He explained: “So I mention the ‘R’ word, I’m not arrogant enough to think Chelsea are too good to go down. But if that carries on, Chelsea will end up in a relegation [battle].
“Everyone has, from right to the very top, the managers who have been brought in, the staff, the players, everyone has got to take a little bit of this blame and they’ve got to fix it.
“But right now, if that continues, I don’t think we’re going to go down, I’m not arrogant enough to think it can’t happen.”
Chelsea lost 1-0 at home to Aston Villa at the weekend and host Brighton in the Carabao Cup tomorrow night as they look to bounce back.
But their schedule doesn’t get any easier either with the West London outfit facing the likes of Arsenal, Spurs, Man City, Newcastle and Man United in their next ten league fixtures.
