Tonight Chelsea limped out of Europe 3-0 at the hands of Barcelona. The club are now reliant on the FA Cup for silverware as they are out of contention everywhere else. Meanwhile, top four looks a considerable challenge and rumours continue that their manager is set to leave at the end of the season.
After Antiono Conte's side lost tonight, Eamonn Dunphy and Richard Dunne voiced their opinion on RTE Two as to what the club needs to fix long-term.
There is no doubt Chelsea have deep-rooted issues at the club, but as long as the club continues to be successful it seems this cycle will continue. After all, they have won the Premier League five times since 2005 and have a laissez-faire approach to hiring and firing managers.
