Odds suggest Chelsea’s woes will continue this season

| 07.08.2017

Chelsea’s problems look set to continue all season, according to the latest odds.

After losing to Arsenal in the Community Shield on Sunday, we make it just 4/6 for the Blues NOT to win a single trophy this year.

The reigning champions are also shorter than ever at 5/2 to finish outside of the top four this season.

And having been 1/4 last month to still be in charge on the final day of the campaign, Antonio Conte’s odds of remaining in the dugout have drifted to 2/1.

Meanwhile, following his miss in last weekend’s penalty shootout, £70m man Alvaro Morata is 10/11 to net fewer than 15 league goals in his debut season in England.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “The start of the new season is less than a week away, but plenty needs to be done in West London if Chelsea are to pose a serious threat in all competitions.”

“We reckon the Blues could go a whole campaign without lifting silverware, which could leave Conte looking for a new job before the season’s out.”
