Verdict: Thomas Tuchel is safe for now but even his Champions League win will not protect him if slump continuesDecember 19, 2021
DESPITE being clearly affected by Covid-19 and having to start unfit players, Chelsea are in a dangerous slump right now.
And with a cut-throat owner who wants to see them compete for every single trophy, when Blues bosses hit a run of bad form like this you always fear for them.
That is because it always the managers who take the blame and the brunt of it at Stamford Bridge, as you can hardly sack all the players.
But I do not think we are in that situation yet at Chelsea, as the seven key players missing will be taken in account.
I think the board will be entirely behind Thomas Tuchel right now and will know he is the guy to get them out of this hole.
But in terms of performance, it was once again another terrible display against Wolves from all but a few Blues players.
N'Golo Kante was world class once again, as was Thiago Silva, but the rest looked out of ideas as they only managed to get a couple of attempts on target all game.
Chelsea failed to turn up in the first-half and were lucky to go in level at the break.

They at least bossed possession and took the game to Wolves in the second half but worryingly again they could not create anything.
They have now only won two games in the last seven, and to be honest they were lucky to win those.
It is like groundhog day now and questions will definitely start to be asked, as is the nature of the beast.
It was a bad spell and run of about eight games that saw former Blues boss Frank Lampard sent packing.
I do not feel we will see the same with Tuchel, who won the Champions League last season and has got this team performing very well at times.
But make no mistake, he now needs to pull them out of this slump as soon as possible because the board will not stay patient for long.
