Why Chelsea will not qualify for Champions League next season

West London outfit Chelsea have been condemned in their bid for a Champions League qualification with a top-four finish in the Premier League table.

The Blues are currently in sixth position on the league table behind Arsenal and Man United with their latest 2-0 defeat against Everton ensuring that they are more distanced from the fourth spot.

The defeat against Everton makes it the Blues 7th defeat in the Premier League this season and that seem to be unacceptable to the fans and the club owner.

However, former Blues midfielder Craig Burley argues that some players deserve more playing time than they are been given by manager Maurizio Sarri noting that the ones who are being played have not been productive enough.

He laments the fact that Ruben Loftus-Cheek has not been given enough playing time while Jorginho has had more than enough, yet the midfield has been unproductive with the defeat always coming from their lack of efficiency at the middle.

The Sky Sports pundit said Chelsea’s problem started with the system of play by the former Napoli boss, noting that N’Golo Kante is being missed in the deep role at the midfield as Jorginho has not been doing his job.

He, therefore, argued that Sarri could be sacked but has the Europa League to save his job.
