Now, the west Londoners will need to put their off-field issues to one side and focus their battle to finish in the top four when Burnley come to town.
The Clarets lost to Leicester on Tuesday and need to bounce back as they strive to get out of the relegation zone.
The Premier League clash is due to take place on Saturday, March 5 at Turf Moor.
Kick off is scheduled for 3pm.
These two drew 1-1 at Stafford Bridge in November as Matej Vydra secured a late point for Burnley after Kai Havertz’s opener. 
Unfortunately, this fixture will not be televised on UK screens due to the 3pm blackout in English football.
However, highlights will be available on the Sky Sports website and app shortly after the end of the match and then later on Match of the Day.
Updates will also be live on talkSPORT throughout the afternoon while talkSPORT.com will be running a live blog to follow all the action.

Dyche’s Burnley face a battle to stay in the Premier League
Burnley boss Sean Dyche: “We’ve shown before and recently that [beating Chelsea] can be done. You do have to be at the top of your performance levels and we’ve got to make sure we’re on top of that.
“We think we can challenge and be competitive in this division whoever we play and wherever we play.”
Ask if the Chelsea players could be distracted, Dyche added: “In theory it is simple because they are there to play football and are contracted to play football, that is their profession.
“They know what their challenge is and they know what is at stake.
“But of course the modern game has so many outlets, media hits and views so it is not always easy.
“You are trying to manage your team internally with what you do and the planning but sometimes there is lots of external messages and news.
“I think it just change but I think the modern player is savvy enough to that.
“It is still tricky and there are a lot of opinions and voices going into players when you just want them focussed on what is right in front of them which is usually the next game.”
