Chelsea have suffered a downfall in recent seasons. Whether you see it as a deserved downfall or an unnecessary one depends on your relationship with the clear. However, I don’t think I’m going out on a limb by saying that most people who aren’t Chelsea fans don’t like the club. This is because many believe they have ruined English football through incessant spending.
But my job with this article isn’t to slate Chelsea based on opinion. As some of you may know, I’m very opinionated at the best of times, but today I’m here to report on a fact. Well, a fact which has been found out by others, which I think is just brilliant. Fans of the club may want to look away, though.

Chelsea haven’t beaten a top-10 team in OVER 600 DAYS
There has been a rumour going around on social media that Chelsea haven’t beaten a team who was in the top 10 of the Premier League (at the time the match was played) for over 600 days. In fact, the last Chelsea managed to do this was against Spurs in January 2022.
Posted by content creator Rory Talks Football on X, football fans in the replies did some digging and found out that this claim was actually true.
😳 Just seen a TikTok claiming the last time Chelsea beat a team who were in the top half of the Premier League at the time
Was Spurs in January 2022, over 600 days ago 🤯

It truly is worrying and an area of concern which Mauricio Pochettino must concern. As a club who has spent an unfathomable amount of money, the MINIMUM expectation is to win trophies. But the Blues are’t doing that and they can’t even beat top half teams, if this statistic is anything to go by.
How do you think Mauricio Pochettino can get out of this mess?
