Chelsea have not won the Premier League title since the Antonio Conte era in 2016 and they might have to wait until 2023 at least if they don't get their acts together at Stamford Bridge. The Blues have one of the best away records in the Premier League this season, but it's their home form that has threatened to derail their title challenge even before the halfway stage of the season. [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="1200"][/caption] West London giants Chelsea led the Premier League for the better part of two months before they lost the summit to defending champions Manchester City earlier this month thanks to the 3-2 comeback loss at fellow London team West Ham United. The Blues lost to a very good team on their own patch though they would be disappointed that they didn't manage to hold on to the lead twice during the game only to then lose it in the final minutes, but in truth, it is their home form that ensured that they lost their place at the top of the table to Manchester City, while also losing second place to Liverpool. Chelsea have had to settle for third place since losing to the Hammers this month. It must be pointed out that Chelsea drew their last two home games before the West Ham United and that's where the problem lies.

Chelsea defender Victor Moses has confirmed his retirement from international football at the age of 27. The attacker has been a regular feature for Nigeria over the past seven years but he has now decided to step down from national team duty to concentrate on his club career and his young family. “I would like to announce that after much thought I have made the decision to retire from playing international football. I have experienced some of the best moments of my life wearing the Super Eagles shirt and have memories with me that will last a lifetime. Nothing will ever compete to what it felt like to represent Nigeria on behalf of our country. However, I feel that now is the right time to step away in order to be able to focus fully on club career and my young family as well as to allow the next generation of Super Eagles stars the opportunity to step up and to flourish,” he wrote on his official Instagram account.
