Former Premier League midfielder Joey Barton believes Chelsea are out of the title race after Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Crystal Palace.

“Something’s not quite right at Chelsea,” Barton told talkSPORT.

“They’ve lost [Alvaro] Morata and they’ll hopefully get him back as soon as possible because it doesn’t look like [Michy] Batshuayi is the answer.

“If you’re Chelsea, I think the title for them is over. I don’t think they’re going to be at that level this season.

“They’ve got to really focus on the Champions League, and making sure they get in the top four.”
