It couldn’t happen, could it? The thought of Chelsea being relegated this season seems like it should be impossible.

Indeed, the odds of Chelsea being demoted from the Premier League in 2023-24 are so long that it appears very unlikely it will indeed happen.

Sky Bet give you odds of 100/1 for Chelsea to be relegated to the Championship. William Hill provide odds of 150/1 to take the plunge to the second-tier.

Betfair and Paddy Power have the same odds of 150/1.

However, Chelsea’s dismal start to the season has some fans and punters debating whether it is worth having a cheeky bet on the Blues actually being relegated.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men have only picked up five points from their opening six games.

They find themselves down in 15th position, and last weekend suffered another dismal defeat 1-0 to Aston Villa at home.

They are just two points above the relegation zone.

The performances have been just as bad as the results, with Chelsea genuinely looking like one of the worst teams in the league.

It is an astonishing situation given that Chelsea owner Todd Boehly has spent over €1 billion on transfers over the last year.

Yet Chelsea still have gaping holes all over the team. They have no top number nine and the squad is full of young, inexperienced players who are crumbling under the pressure.

In theory, even with all these problems, Chelsea should still have enough to at least stay up.

Luton Town (favourites to be relegated at a best price of 1/5), rock-bottom Sheffield United (3/10), Burnley (9/4), Everton (5/2), Wolves (11/4) and Bournemouth (3/1) all look weaker even now than Chelsea.

But you never truly know what could happen. Such is the chaos at Stamford Bridge that a shock relegation at the end of the season can’t be completely ruled out.
