Our worst Premier League season ever has officially been established following last night’s defeat at Manchester United in almost every way. Previously, that dubious honor belonged to 1993–94, our second season in the Premier League following its separation from the top tier of the English football pyramid in 1992. Read out complete details about Chelsea’s least fortunate Premier League season is 2022-23.
Chelsea’s least fortunate Premier League season is 2022-23
In a division with 22 teams at the time, we finished 14th with 51 points from 42 games (1.214 points per game), 49 goals (1.167 goals per game), and a -4 goal differential. Amusingly, despite losing 4-0 to Manchester United in the FA Cup final, we did manage to get into a European tournament. However, we had the opportunity to attend the Cup because United won the league and qualified for the Champions League.
The first season of a 38-team Premier League, in 1995-96, threatened to dethrone the futility of 1993-94, but an 11th-place finish with 50 points from 38 games (1.316 pts/game) with 46 goals scored (1.211 gls/game) was just good enough to beat that out. 2015-16 matched those points-totals with a slightly higher placement (10th) and many more goals (59).
