Chelsea is in a tight battle with Manchester United to qualify for the Champions League for next season. Chelsea’s win over Manchester City on Thursday night was a good result for the Blues. They should still be looking over their shoulders at Manchester United because the Red Devils have an easier run-in.
That’s the opinion of Shaka Hislop, who believes Chelsea shouldn’t be as comfortable as they are in the race for the Champions League places. Champions League fans can book Champions League Final Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.
Chelsea’s 2-1 win over City on Thursday night secured Liverpool as Premier League champions. But the win was significant for Blues fans as well, as it pushed them further ahead of United in the race for the top-four.
Frank Lampard’s side currently occupies the fourth spot in the table, five points ahead of the Red Devils. They are still one point behind Leicester City, so there’s a chance they will finish in the third spot when the season concludes.
But Hislop believes they should still be worried about United leapfrogging them and securing Champions League football ahead of them. The Red Devils have a slightly easier run-in from now until the end of the season and will play three teams in the bottom four.
They face off against Brighton, who are 15th, before facing Bournemouth, Aston Villa, Southampton, Crystal Palace, and West Ham. Their only game against a top-half team will come on the final day against Leicester City, whereas Chelsea has a tougher fixture list ahead of them.
The Blues still have to play Sheffield United, Wolves, and the newly-crowned champions. Wolves and the Blades are still in the running for European qualification and will face stiff competition to Lampard’s side.
And speaking on ESPN FC, Hislop predicted that the race for the top four will go down to the wire and that Chelsea’s situation isn’t as rosy as it seems.
He stated I think Chelsea is sitting a tad anxiously. No doubt, I state that under 24 hours after they beat Manchester City. Joined have the simpler disagreement, so on a par with an outcome as that was for Chelsea, it’s far from [being] completed most definitely. That is as yet my expectation.
“We’ll see what occurs with UEFA and City and whether it’s down to the fifth spot.”But right now, let’s go top four, and I don’t think Chelsea are as comfortable as they think they are.”
