Why Chelsea can still finish top-four

There are suggestions that the West London outfit Chelsea can still finish in the top four of the English Premier League as they play their fixtures against Burnley later on Monday.

The Blues team are currently in the fifth position in the league table but they have a major advantage as Tottenham, Man United and Arsenal all lost their weekend games respectively.

At the moment, the Blues team have played 34 games and already have 66 points, same with fourth-placed Arsenal with a point below Tottenham who have also played 34 games both.

However, should the West London outfit win their 35th game against Burnley later on Monday, they will take two steps forward to land in the third position in the Premier League table ahead of Tottenham and Arsenal.

It is claimed that the Blues team could just continue from there to avoid any defeat again in the league and that could mean playing in the Champions League next season as all hope is not lost.

The manager Maurizio Sarri team is however not favourites to finish in the top four but the situation changed as soon as Tottenham, Arsenal and Man United all lost at the weekend.

However, a top-four finish could help Maurizio Sarri keep his job.
