Former Arsenal player Paul Mersin has had his say on where Chelsea would finish this season, saying the West Londoners are primed to make the top four.
The arrival of Thomas Tuchel had brought good tidings to the Blues as they’ve enjoyed an upturn in form since the end of January.
Chelsea have won two big games on the bounce and it’s a boost to their champions league hopes for next term.
At the moment, Chelsea FC sit fourth on the log and two points clear of West Ham United, who have a game in hand.
Though they might be having a jolly ride now, Merson is of the belief that the job isn’t finished yet but they’ve what it takes to make the top four.
Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Merson said: “Chelsea are now in pole position to finish in the top four after a big week of results, but it is not a foregone conclusion.
“They have to keep producing right until the end of the season.
“There are not too many concerns about injuries at the moment. They have a really good squad and we’ve seen it utilised in the last few weeks by Tuchel. [N’Golo] Kante and [Mason] Mount were rested on Monday, Olivier Giroud is on the bench too and Tammy Abraham is not even getting a look in.
“It’s far from job done, though. They need to keep this run going because we’ve already seen this season that things can change very quickly.
“West Ham keep winning and Tottenham are flying again. It’s lucky Chelsea have been on this brilliant run and are in the position they are in because otherwise, they’d have been out of it.”
Chelsea FC will return to Premier League action on Saturday when they travel to face Leeds United.
