Chelsea fans fear they will be ‘RELEGATED’ with seven horror games lying in wait after Aston Villa defeat

CHELSEA’S upcoming run of fixtures has left fans fearing they could be relegated.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side suffered their third defeat from the first six matches of the season on Sunday.

Ollie Watkins’ goal proved the winner as Aston Villa won 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Malo Gusto was also sent off for the Blues, who sit in 14th place, nine points off the top four and just four above the drop zone.

Chelsea’s fortunes could worsen by December as they face a nightmare run of fixtures after the October international break.

A trio of London derbies against Arsenal, Brentford and Tottenham are followed by a visit from treble winners Manchester City.

Newcastle then welcome Chelsea to St. James’ Park before Pochettino’s side host Brighton on December 2.

Their horror run of games then comes to an end on December 6 away to Manchester United.

Asked how Chelsea will fare in their upcoming matches, one fan tweeted: “Relegation straight up.”

Another replied: “Maximum of three points and we will come out of it with a new manager.”

A third fan also commented: “18th place by December 7.”

Meanwhile, a rival fan added: “Not sure they can get one point because they’re losing the next five games.”

Chelsea came into this season off the back of their worst league finish since 1994.

Pochettino took over a side in the summer that had finished 12th in the Premier League last term.

Owner Todd Boehly also sacked both Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter during the campaign, with Bruno Saltor and Frank Lampard also occupying the dugout as interim and caretaker manager, respectively.

Chelsea currently sit on five points from six matches, with a victory over winless Luton their only league win so far.
