The chelsea fc was humiliated by Pep Guardiola’s Manchester city side by 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge on sunday’s premier league fixtures.
At the start of December, Chelsea were considered realistic Premier League title contenders after an impressive start to the season.
One month on, though, and after a run of just one win from their last six games, the Blues find themselves eighth in the table.
Unsurprisingly, pressure is beginning to mount on manager Frank Lampard, and rightly so given recent results.
The nadir came here at Stamford Bridge, as Manchester City dominated Chelsea on their way to a 3-1 win that could easily have ended with the visitors scoring far more.
City arrived in west London without six players due to positive Covid-19 diagnoses, but you would barely have known as they out-ran, out-thought and utterly outplayed their hosts.
Chelsea were defenceless to City’s pressing and movement, with Lampard’s team barely threatening debutant goalkeeper Zack Steffen in the City goal until Callum Hudson-Odoi’s stoppage-time consolation as they suffered a fourth league defeat since December 12.
