Chelsea fans will not be happy to hear their manager Maurizio Sarri claim that the chances of his side finishing in the top four are slim which means there will not be a Champions League football next season.
The Italian boss made this claim after his side saw their first two defeats in the Premier League against North London rivals and Wolves respectively.
The West London side are now fourth in the Premier League table making it 10 points behind league leaders Manchester City with the Italian boss expressing fears that the gap could grow wider.
According to him, Man City are on a different level and cannot be competed with, hence Sarri said he has given up on the English Premier League title but will rather focus his fight on finishing in the top four.
He noted that the English Premier League is a difficult one but stated that they will make efforts to ensure that points are gained from every game.
Chelsea will hope to bounce back when they meet Pep Guardiola’s side Man City in another Premier League tie on Saturday at the Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea is now with 31 points in 15 league games with City having 41 points in the same number of games.
