The English Premier League defending champions, Chelsea, will not forget Sunday, August 16, 2015, in a hurry. Maybe they should mark the date in their calendar as Black Sunday: The day the suffered a scandalous defeat in the hands of their last season’s runners up, Manchester City.
If the match had ended with the first half score line of when they were one goal down, Chelsea, probably wouldn’t have dented their reputation the way they did after the final 90 minutes, when they had gone down with two more goals, ending the encounter three goals down.
With this result, the Jose Mourinho tutored boys need a complete win in their next encounter to keep up their morale for the season, having had a barren draw in their first march against Swansea City.
The Blues played so badly that an analyst, Shahan Ahmed said “Losing 3-0 did not truly reflect his (Mourinho’s) team’s performance on the day. Really, it should have been 4, 5, or 6 to nil.”
With such a wobbling start, can the Chelsea successfully defend the EPL title the won last
season? Let us all watch out, perhaps Jose Mourinho, the Special One has some special tricks up his sleeves to turn around the tide currently running against his team.
