Chelsea have won their last three games in all competitions, and Frank Lampard’s side are beginning to look like they can have a great season this term.

The Blues are currently 7th in the league with 11 points from their opening 7 games, and former Chelsea star Joe Cole believes that the Chelsea team can go on to clinch a top four spot ahead of Tottenham and Arsenal.

Cole was impressed with what he saw from Chelsea’s performance against Lille in the UEFA Champions League game on Wednesday night, and has backed Chelsea to finish in the top four.

“After 10 games now I’m looking at it… top six is acceptable,” Cole told BT Sport.

“But I’m looking at it and thinking I can’t see Tottenham or Arsenal finishing above Chelsea. I think maybe the top four is there for them.

“With Frank, I don’t think it was a conscience effort to come in and play these young players straight away.

“I think he’s had a lot of his squad and because of the transfer ban there was more and more of them training and he’s looking at it and thinking ‘well these guys are producing for me, they’re doing the business in pre-season’.

“I think it’s just happened that way organically. He’s doing well right now.”
