SCORING goals has been a major problem for Chelsea this season.
In fact, the Blues have netted just SIX times in nearly four months.

That’s six goals in 15 games since November, and just three of those have come in the Premier League.
No Prem team has scored fewer goals than Chelsea since November 6.
The Old Trafford ace is on something of a hot streak at the moment, while the shocking demise at Stamford Bridge is clear for all to see.
To put things into perspective, Manchester United have scored 53 goals in the same period that Chelsea have scored just six.
Marcus Rashford alone has netted 18 times since November 6 – three times Chelsea’s tally.
Manchester City and Arsenal have also scored five times as many goals as Chelsea in that period.
Even struggling Leeds United have scored 20 goals in all competitions since November 6 – 14 more than the Blues.
While Erling Haaland, Harry Kane, Riyad Mahrez, Mo Salah, Ivan Toney, Ollie Watkins, Eddie Nketiah and James Ward-Prowse have all outscored Chelsea in that four month period.
Graham Potter’s appointment was always billed as a long-term project, but the current run of form is a major cause for concern.
The Blues are winless in their last six games and have won just two out of their last 16 Prem matches, leaving them slumped tenth in the Prem table.
Rivals Leeds, buoyed by the arrival of Javi Gracia, and Borussia Dortmund are up next for Potter and his wounded side.
And two more poor results could leave the Blues boss facing the axe.
By that time the resurgent Fred could have even added to his tally and overtaken Chelsea for goals scored since November 6.
