Kaizer Chiefs currently find themselves 10 points short of their 21-point tally after seven league games last season.
Steve Komphela’s Amakhosi are currently on their longest winless streak in the Absa Premiership in over two years, and the 0-0 draw with Jomo Cosmos last night means that, depending on tonight’s results, they could drop to eighth place this evening.
Last season, under Stuart Baxter, Chiefs won their first 10 league games of the season to kickstart what would eventually be a title-winning campaign for the Glamour Boys, however this year they have managed just two wins from their opening seven matches.
Komphela’s men have drawn five of their league games, lost out on the MTN8 and kept just five clean sheets in 12 games up to now, form that will no doubt be worrying for their head coach and players.
There are, however, some positives to be taken from Chiefs’ start to the season, with Komphela’s side remaining one of just three clubs, alongside Mpumalanga Black Aces and Platinum Stars, yet to be beaten in the league.
