Chelsea have matched an unwanted record after they were beaten again away from the Premier League this season. The Blues were on the receiving end of a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Southampton despite taking the lead. To this effect, they have now lost at least two of their opening five games for the second time in the Premier League era. They lost three of their opening five games during the 2015/16 season under manager Jose Mourinho as they failed to successfully defend their league title from the previous season.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is opinion that the presence of Sir Alex Ferguson is keeping Manchester United away from achieving success of a consistent nature. Ferguson stepped down in 2013 as one of the greatest managers in the history of the game after managing to win an incredible 13 league titles, two Champions League honours, and five FA Cup’s in 26 years at Manchester United. However, United have been unable to come away from the vacuum left by the departure of the Scot. Even though they have been through some high profile managers like Louis Van Gaal and Jose Mourinho, they have been unable to pick up a league title. A couple of trophies like the FA Cup and Europa League have been the sole joys for United during this period.
