Chelsea’s fortunes could worsen by December as they face a nightmare run of fixtures after the October international break.

Their horror run of games then comes to an end on December 6 away to Manchester United.
Asked how Chelsea will fare in their upcoming matches, one fan tweeted: “Relegation straight up.”
Another replied: “Maximum of three points and we will come out of it with a new manager.”

Chelsea came into this season off the back of their worst league finish since 1994.
Pochettino took over a side in the summer that had finished 12th in the Premier League last term.
Chelsea currently sit on five points from six matches, with a victory over winless Luton their only league win so far.
