Chelsea arrested a desperate slide in form on Saturday after beating Norwich 1-0 to take them up to 15th in the Premier League.
So poor has Chelsea's season been so far, that after Diego Costa netted to clinch the side's first win in four league games, fans at Stamford Bridge were heard chanting:
We are staying up, we are staying up.
The song, which is usually reserved for teams in relegation fights at the tail-end of the season, shows just how badly things have been going.
After starting the season as reigning champions and title favourites, just four victories in 13 games has seen the Blues fall way off the pace in the league.
Rumours of dressing room unrest and the very public exit of club doctor Eva Carneiro has heaped unexpected pressure on manager Jose Mourinho.
Still, at least the club's fans have started to see the funny side.
