Gbenga Adeyinka: Chelsea Can’t Retain EPL Title

By Izuchukwu Okosi:

Comedian and master of ceremonies Gbenga Adeyinka has rubbed salt in the wound of Chelsea fans by predicting that Jose Mourinho’s team are unlikely to retain their Barclays Premier League title after Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Newcastle United.

The Blues are just above teams in the relegation spot in the table with eight points and have seen title rivals, bar Manchester City, garner points against weaker opposition this weekend.

“At this stage of the season Chelsea have dropped so many points already and I don’t see how they will overtake their rivals at the top,” Adeyinka ‘the First’, who is a big Arsenal fan, told

“Man City have surprisingly lost twice now but still, I do not think they will be as poor as Chelsea have been. Man United on their part have been quite impressive with the addition of Anthony Martial.

“The Spurs win over City on Saturday has given the teams at the top the chance to fight for it but Chelsea are unlikely to be in the mix now.”

Chelsea’s next game is a Champions League clash against Jose Mourinho’s former club, Porto, at the Estadio Dragao on Tuesday.

Mourinho led the Portuguese side to win the 2004 Champions League title.


  • Mr Gbenga, don’t think, Chelsea will definitely not near the 1st 6 position but they will end up at best 10th or below. The reality is glaring. Are you not seeing it? Mourinho has angered many people, important people and so he is hated. It is Mourinho that is making many people all over the world talk ill of Chelsea. Most teams playing Chelsea will do all they can to frustrate them. They were fortunate t escape defeat to Newcastle and the trend will continue till the end of the league. Moreover teams have money now and so will like to consolidate on their gains come January. I believe Chelsea will not do well this season unless Mourinho is sacked.
