Chelsea could face the possibility of losing their Premier League status under extraordinary circumstances this season.
Although the Blues have had three managers in charge this campaign, they still sit in 12th place with 39 points.
The current man in the hot seat, Frank Lampard, has lost all the six matches he has taken charge of.
The latest was a 3-1 humiliation in the hands of title contender Arsenal on Tuesday night.
While relegation is a long shot, it is not entirely impossible.
Mathematically, Chelsea could still go down this season. The distance between themselves and 18th-placed Nottingham Forest is not big.
Leicester and Leeds in 16th and 17th place respectively are also nine points away from the Blues.
For the Blues to go down, all three of Forest, Leicester and Leeds would have to pick up at least 10 points from their final four games.
It would also mean Bournemouth on 39 points, Wolves on 37 and West Ham with 34 would all need to pick up enough points to overtake Lampard’s men.
What would also need to happen and frankly is more likely, is Chelsea losing all five of their remaining fixtures.
