Chelsea will now be looking to avoid setting an unwanted club record when they meet Manchester City in the Premier League this weekend.
The London team have endured their worst season for three decades, finding themselves in 11th position in the standings with three games left.
Chelsea are already aware that they will not participate in Europe next campaign at all and Mauricio Pochettino is expected to be appointed as the club’s next head coach in due course.

For now, caretaker manager Frank Lampard is tasked with trying to win points from big teams like Man City, Manchester United and Newcastle United.
On a positive note, Chelsea have recorded four points from their last two top-flight games, beating Bournemouth by a 3-1 scoreline before being held by Nottingham last weekend.
Still, Chelsea face the prospect of a disastrous end of the campaign unless more improvements are made, and avoiding an unwanted club record will be their target this weekend.
They are currently on a five-match losing streak against Man City in all competitions, failing to score in any of those games.
Ahead of facing Man City for the fourth time this season, Chelsea have never suffered six defeats without scoring in a row against any side in their history.
Chelsea are also only two defeats away from equalling the club record for most losses in a row against a single team, that currently being held by Blackburn with seven wins between 1993 and 1996.
Also, Chelsea are on a 14-match streak of not beating a side who start the match sitting above them in the Premier League table.
