That’s in accordance to John Giles, who gained the First Division name two times with Leeds United in 1969 and 1974.
The goalless draw at house to Arsenal on Sunday used to be the primary time Chelsea have failed to rating at Stamford Bridge since Antonio Conte took price of the membership remaining yr.
After a surprise defeat to Burnley at the opening day of the season, Chelsea appeared again on course with wins over Tottenham, Everton and Leicester.
But the Blues have been not able to in finding a well beyond a resolute Arsenal aspect who have been missing self assurance going into the fit.
And Giles pinpointed the performances of David Luiz and Cesc Fabregas as evidence Conte has now not been in a position to recover from Chelsea’s loss of job in the summertime switch window.
“I didn’t like what I saw of Chelsea in the 0-0 draw with Arsenal,” Giles instructed the Irish Independent.
“The sport uncovered being worried main points, now not least David Luiz’s go back to madcap ways and a significantly prickly efficiency from Cesc Fabregas.
“What you spot at the pitch displays what’s going down within the background and whilst I gave a certified judgement a few weeks again that Antonio Conte turns out to have permitted his lot and is raring to knuckle down to his task, I believe there are indicators that Chelsea are feeling some pressure.
“Luiz misplaced his self-discipline towards Arsenal and as he has so continuously achieved up to now however the nice success for Conte remaining season used to be to one way or the other include his wilder aspect inside of a defensive set-up which gained them the name whilst opponents leaked targets.
“Fabregas has at all times been keen on a moan however he used to be in overdrive towards Arsenal. He appeared a lot as he did throughout the months when Jose Mourinho’s 2d spell at Stamford Bridge used to be coming to an ignominious shut and that shocked me.
“There isn’t any manner to know for sure however it seems to me as though Conte’s authority has most likely been reduced by way of his enjoy throughout the summer season and which may be what we’re seeing in Chelsea’s performances.”
