Chelsea’s loss to Newcastle United has extended an unfortunate record for the Blues that has viewers worried about supporters.
Chelsea overcame a 1-0 loss at St James’ Park after being dominated by the Magpies throughout the match.
The team has already lost four of its five matches and has lost three games in a row (excluding penalty shootouts) for the first time in all competitions since 2002.
Graham Potter was named head coach on Sept. 8 and his first two months in charge have been lackluster at best. Chelsea sit eighth in the table and have collected just 21 points heading into the extended international break.
