Chelseas woes continued as they lost at home and William Hill make Andre Villas Boas just 6/5 to have left his position as Chelsea boss by the first game of next season (8/13 to still be there). Villas-Boas is now 9/1 to be the first manager to leave his position.
Chelseas defensive issues were highlighted once more and they have now failed to keep a clean sheet at home since April. They are 25/1 to fail to keep a home clean sheet in the next five matches.
Chelsea found themselves in a funk like this during last season and it ultimately cost Carlo Ancelotti his job and should this poor run of form continue, then Villas-Boas could be in the same position come the start of next season, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
