The Blues seemed to be the contenders at the start of the season. After winning the Champions League trophy in last season They strengthened their squad by buying Romelu Lukaku for £98 million.
They have started strong with 10 wins from their first 14 league games but have faced tough times in December and January, with Tuchel’s men winning just four of their 11 games.
Five draws and two defeats in those periods have taken the title hopes farther away. UFABET They are now 16 points behind leaders Manchester City, with Poyet stating that Chelsea are not doing well enough in the 2021-22 season.
“My opinion of Chelsea has never changed. I thought at the start of the season that they have to be contenders for the league title.” Gustavo Poyet said.
“When you win the Champions League And then you sign a striker for £90million, that means you have to win the league, it’s that simple.
“We can’t make excuses. We can’t blame the covids, injuries or whatever… Chelsea need to win the title this year. That’s the most important thing, it’s because of Chelsea, they can’t blame anyone.”
“Listen, they didn’t lose much. But the problem is that they are always too much. And that’s why they are behind Manchester City and Liverpool.”
