Chelsea FC could actually lose games, though. But what would the Premier League standings look like if outcomes went against the Blues?
Chelsea Online News:
Chelsea FC have endured a complete disaster of a season despite spending more than £600 million on players over the last two transfer windows. Tuesday’s 3-1 loss against Arsenal left them in 12th place in the Premier League after yet another poor performance.
Frank Lampard, the caretaker manager for the Blues, has now lost all six of his team’s matches. If the final four outcomes of his disastrous time at Everton earlier this season are also taken into account, Frank Lampard’s own managerial losing run now stands at 10 games.

With 33 games played, the five-time Premier League champions have 39 points, nine above the relegation zone. However, they are still one point short of the “magic” 40 points that are typically the goal for teams trying to stay up. Moreover, things will worsen if Frank Lampard’s flawed team loses their final four league games without being able to stop the slide.
The struggling Blues’ terrible season will finish in complete tragedy as relegation remains a mathematical possibility should outcomes elsewhere among the other clubs still fighting for survival conspire against them between now and the end of the season on May 28.
