Chelsea’s Lowest Premier League Finish and Points


Chelsea have endured a nightmare 2022/23 Premier League season, with the five-time champions currently languishing closer to the relegation zone than the top four positions. This has resulted in Frank Lampard becoming the third manager to occupy the Stamford Bridge hot seat this term following the sackings of Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter. With trips to Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United still to take place between now and the end of the season, it remains a very real possibility that the club could suffer the dishonor of achieving their lowest finish and points tally in the competition’s history.

Chelsea’s worst finish in Premier League history is 14th place from the 1993/94 season, where they amassed just 51 points over 42 games. This was made worse by the fact they were just nine points clear of the relegation zone, with 13 wins, 12 draws and 17 defeats. Glenn Hoddle was appointed as player-manager ahead of the season but he was unable to improve on the 11th place finish from the previous campaign.

The fewest points Chelsea have mustered in a single Premier League season is 50, which occurred in both the 1995/96 and 2015/16 seasons. In 1995/96, they finished 11th with 12 wins, 14 draws and 12 defeats, with Glenn Hoddle stepping down at the end of the season to become the new England manager. The 2015/16 season saw Chelsea attempt to defend the Premier League title they won the previous term under Jose Mourinho, however, nine defeats in 16 games saw him sacked in December with the club down in 16th and just one point above the drop zone. Guus Hiddink was installed as interim manager until the end of the season and he alleviated any relegation concerns by guiding the club to 10th with 12 wins, 14 draws and 12 defeats.
