Chelsea's plight this season has been well documented. The Premier League champions are 14th in the table, just three points off the bottom three, having picked up 15 points in as many matches.

Despite qualifying the last 16 of the Champions League, the Blues are woefully out of form and have not won back-to-back league games all season.

There have been many theories as to why Jose Mourinho's side have been unable to find their best form, but as of yet, nobody has been able to identify the problem.

Sitting 14 points behind Manchester United, the Portuguese boss admitted a top four finish was beyond Chelsea following their 1-0 home defeat to Bournemouth.

And statistics released by EA Sports show exactly how far the Blues have fallen from this stage last season.

After 15 games, EA SPORTS have released their Player Performance Index Team of the Season and the differences between last season are striking.

A year ago, the Stamford Bridge outfit were flying high at the summit of the table and made up more than half of EA's team.

Thibaut Courtois, John Terry, Gary Cahill, Cesc Fabregas, Eden Hazard and Diego Costa were all named in the XI.

However, this season, unsurprisingly, there is not a single Chelsea star in the team.

But there are two players from table-topping Leicester City, who were cast adrift at the bottom exactly 12 months ago.

Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez, who have had an impact on 32 goals this season, are the Foxes who make the XI. See the two teams below.
