Three reasons why Chelsea won’t challenge for the title

Chelsea were frustrated in their title challenge once more as they drew 1-1 with West Brom at The Hawthorns. They failed to convert their domination into three points and they will see this as a big two points dropped.

The Blues may have won at The Etihad but it is clear that Chelsea need to do a professional job against every single side they play against. Here are three reasons why we don’t think they can win the title:

While several point to the problems in attack Mourinho needs to also accurately judge when his players need to be rested. Cahill was injured in the lead up to the West Brom goal and stayed on.

1 LACK OF A STRIKER – Everything has been going well for Chelsea but they can’t afford to be complacent. There’s a clear feeling that they are short of at least one striker at Stamford Bridge.

2 LACK OF PLAN B Despite the feeling of disappointment it is clear that some Chelsea fans have listened to Jose Mourinho when he insists his side are in transition. The problem appears to be a lack of plan B clearly in this match.

3 DRAWS AREN’T GOOD ENOUGH –  It is clear though that if Chelsea draw too many games they won’t win the title. This thought is emphasized here.
