The decision to sack Jose Mourinho may be splitting the Chelsea fanbase as some supporters welcome the club’s decision after their horrendous run of form while others believe that Mourinho could have turned it around.
The rumoured arrival of Guus Hiddink means that the woeful and laughable performances Chelsea have displayed this season will not be tolerated anymore.
However, for Arsene Wenger, Eva Carneiro and the non-Chelsea fans who enjoyed watching them lose nine times in 16 games this season (they only lost three times in the 2014/15 season), here is your opportunity to relive those moments again.
Manchester City 3-0 Chelsea, 16th august
Chelsea were just blown away by an impressive Manchester City performance, as Sergio Aguero opened the scoring before Vincent Kompany headed home and Man of the Match Fernandinho finished them off.
Chelsea 1-2 Crystal Palace, 29th August
Crystal Palace are known to be a tough side to break down but Chelsea were still expected to win this game at the fortress known as Stamford Bridge. They fell behind in the 65th minute thanks to a Bakary Sako goal but new striker Radamel Falcao got them back in the game in the 79th minute.
Chelsea’s equaliser meant nothing three minutes later, when Joel Ward scored the winner.
Everton 3-1 Chelsea, 12th September
Chelsea found themselves 2-0 down after just 22 minutes in this game due to a double brace from Steven Naismith. Mourinho’s men gave themselves a bit of hope when Nemanja Matic responded with a beautiful strike in the 36th minute but Naismith wrapped up all three points for Everton by securing himself a hat-trick in the 82nd minute.
Chelsea 1 – 3 Southampton, 3rd October
Mourinho thought this game would be more enjoyable for his team as they managed to take the lead after just 10 minutes thanks to Willian.
However, it fell apart for Chelsea pretty quickly as they conceded an equaliser just before half time through Steven Davis. Sadio Mane put Southampton ahead in the 60th minute and Graziano Pelle wrapped up all three points in the 72nd minute.
West Ham 2-1 Chelsea, 24th October
Chelsea were caught out early by West Ham in 17th minute as Mauro Zarate put the Hammers ahead but it began to look better for Chelsea when Gary Cahill equalised for the blues. Mourinho was desperate for his team to find a winner but instead Andy Carroll popped up with the winner in the 79th minute.
Chelsea 1-3 Liverpool, 31st October
Liverpool were sloppy in the first half an hour but became much more confident at the end of the first half, which resulted in a Coutinho equaliser right before half time.
Mourinho walked down the tunnel in disgust and Liverpool piled on the misery when Coutinho scored again in the 74th minute. The game was wrapped up by Christian Benteke in the 83rd minute.
Stoke 1-0 Chelsea, 7th November
The only goal of the game came in the 53rd minute when a brilliant piece of play from Xherdan Shaqiri, Glen Johnson and Jon Walters led to an incredible volley finish from Marko Arnautovic.
Chelsea 0-1 Bournemouth, 5th December
Mourinho’s team created plenty of chances, but could not convert. Bournemouth grew in confidence and began to go for the win in the latter stages of the game, grabbing the win thanks to Glenn Murray, who headed home in the 82nd minute after a sloppy piece of defending from Chelsea.
Leicester 2-1 Chelsea, 14th December
Who would’ve thought at the start of the season that Leicester would be expected to beat last season’s champions, Chelsea. Well, that was the reality this week.
It was Jamie Vardy who opened the scoring in the 34th minute before Riyad Mahrez made it 2-0 to Leicester.
Chelsea attempted to get back into the game in the second half as Loic Remy scored in the 77th minute but all three points went to Leicester.
