The new year did not start off well for Chelsea as they were defeated today at Stamford Bridge 1-0 by bottom dwellers QPR.
Harry Redknapp’s squad got their goal from substitute Shaun Wright Phillips in the 78th.
It was the first QPR win at Chelsea in 34 years! Remarkably, it was only the second win of the year for QPR in this London Derby.
One thing to note was that former DC United defender Ryan Nelsen performed well for QPR at center back.
The pressure will continue on Chelsea coach Rafa Benetiz who tinkered with his lineup.
Chelsea are trying to acquire striker Demba Ba from Newcastle.

The “Reds” await the arrival of Daniel Sturrige and are now in 8th place in the EPL table.
