Chelsea are currently fourth in the league, and the Blues have held on to fourth place for some months now.

However, despite Chelsea being fourth, the Blues haven’t cemented their place, and the likes of Tottenham, Manchester United, Sheffield United and Wolves all have a chance to seal the last spot in the Champions League.

United have stuttered a lot recently and are six points behind Chelsea, but Rio Ferdinand is still backing his club to finish in fourth.

He told TalkSport: “[United] haven’t been as consistent as we would like, but that happens with change and when there’s a lot of youth that has been brought into a squad.

“As a fan you want your team to win, play well, get results, to see big players step up and score goals, and we’ve seen that sporadically for Manchester United this season.

“The target at the moment if to be in the Champions League and United are fortunate there isn’t a team that has really gone on a rich vein of form to cement their place in the top four.

“So it’s up for grabs.”
