Chelsea are currently fourth in the Premier League, and the Blues will have to fight off the challenge of Manchester United, Tottenham and Arsenal who are also keen in the race, with the likes of Sheffield United and Wolves who have shown some quality so far.

The appointment of Jose Mourinho as Tottenham manager sparked a revival in the Tottenham team as Spurs closed a gap of 12 points to just 3. But now that gap has been increased to 9 points with Spurs struggling to find form recently.

Tottenham left-back Danny Rose still harbours hope of a top four finish, but the England international has admitted that it’s going to be a difficult task.

“The top four is a bit harder now, but when he took over we were 12 points behind and we managed to get it to three,” he said after the defeat against the Reds.

“We maybe took one step back but we have shown we can close the gap but it is just a case of winning on Tuesday and then again at Watford on Saturday, that’s going to be a massive test.”
