We’re two games into the new Premier League season and have just three teams with maximum points. The usual suspects Manchester City and Liverpool find themselves in 5th and 6th positions. But, one team has failed to get going really and they are the reigning champions, Chelsea.
We take a look at five reasons Chelsea’s crown is under threat.
5. Lack of Transfers
Chelsea have made three major signings thus far, of which only Tiemoue Bakayoko was the first-choice transfer and the other two (Alvaro Morata and Antonio Rudiger), though supremely talented, were signed after Chelsea missed out on their primary targets Romelu Lukaku and Leonardo Bonucci. With just about a week left before the transfer window closes, it looks highly unlikely for any new players to arrive at Stamford Bridge.
