Chelsea missed a good chance to climb into third spot in Monday night’s game against Burnley.

The Blues headed into that game in need of a win after the three other sides contending for a top four spot had lost during the weekend games. However, Chelsea failed to take advantage of their drop in points and played out a 2-2 draw with Burnley at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are currently a point ahead of Arsenal who have a game at hand, and if they win that game, Chelsea will drop to fifth spot and two points behind the Gunners.

Arsenal travel to Wolves on Wednesday, a side which boasts an excellent record against the top six this season but Gunners boss Unai Emery is positive his team can get its season back on track at the Molineaux.

“Yes,” he said when asked if Arsenal would finish in the top four.

“It also depends on other teams’ results.

“At the beginning it’s in our hands if we win. We want to be intelligent. On Sunday, we didn’t win but maybe today we can say that one point was important on Sunday.

“Maybe that can happen in the next matches. We will prepare to win but we can win, draw or lose. The first situation for us is in our hands if we win, but then we’re going to play difficult matches.

“Chelsea v Burnley at home was a difficult match and we were thinking they were going to win, but they were playing against a very strong Burnley side, it was a very tough match and the result was a draw.

“We want to be intelligent and consistent in 38 matches. Sometimes, one draw can be the way.”
