Chelsea are currently fourth in the league, but the Blues are no longer in a comfortable position as Chelsea’s grip for a Champions League finish has reduced.

Chelsea have lost 3 out of their last four Premier League games but still have a 5-point cushion over Man United who are in 5th in the league.

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has now warned Chelsea of Manchester United, Tottenham and even Arsenal who are chasing from behind.

“Can Manchester United catch Chelsea in fourth? 100 per cent!” Merson told Sky Sports.

“There’s a long way to go. Chelsea are a young side and are going to have their ups and downs.

“Spurs aren’t going to be far away either now Jose Mourinho has been appointed. You’ve got Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester United, four big football clubs, vying for what looks to be one spot in the top four.”

Chelsea lost the cushion in the top four after losing three of the last four league games.
