Sixteen games into the Premier League season and Chelsea are sitting in sixteenth place with nine defeats. The words just aren't there to describe how unlikely a scenario that would have been back in August. Mid-December and Chelsea are one point above the relegation zone, it's astonishing and that's before you even take into account that Leicester are in the position that many assumed Chelsea would be.
Last night's 2-1 win brought Leicester back to the top of the table and Jose Mourinho was less than delighted with the players at his disposal. After 53 minutes, shortly after conceding the second goal, Mourinho hooked John Terry in favour of Cesc Fabregas and the Chelsea boss' comments in the aftermath of the defeat have certainly been picked up upon in relation to that substitution.
These two goals are very difficult to accept. I feel my work was betrayed.
Given that Terry was substituted so soon after Mahrez continued his incredible run of form, it's difficult to do anything other than assume Terry was at least included in Mourinho's betrayal. Perhaps a bit harsh considering what Terry has done for Mourinho over the course of his Chelsea career but no one is safe from Mourinho's ire these days and there was one man who seemed rather happy about that.
Step forward Robbie Savage to stick the boot into John Terry like only he could. Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live after last night's game Savage came out fighting following the recent verbal spat between the much loved pair.
I'm going to criticise John Terry again because he's the captain of that team and they looked a better side when he went off. If he wants to question me again I don't really care because tonight he was awful once again.
It's the fight that keeps giving and the fight where the general public are the winners no matter what happens. You can listen to Savage's thoughts on the matter below.
