Chelsea are currently fourth in the Premier League, and the Blues are fighting for a place in the Champions League next season.

Chelsea seem to be a work in progress under Frank Lampard, but the Blues stock has since risen since the signing of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner.

Liverpool raced to the Premier League title this season and Manchester City won the league title the two previous seasons.

Many are expecting a four-horse race for next season, with Manchester United and Chelsea expected to challenge for the title.

However, Manchester United legend Roy Keane believes it will be difficult for Chelsea to challenge Liverpool and Man City next season.

“Liverpool have been desperate for this Premier League, that was something they were desperate to do,” Keane told Sky Sports.

“Manchester City are more than capable of winning two more trophies [this season]. Man City are an outstanding team, brilliant team.

“Different transfer situation coming up for them this summer. [Leroy] Sane’s left, [David] Silva’s going off, so they have to recruit.

“You have to trust these managers. Klopp and the recruitment policy for Liverpool, it’s obviously worked. He’s bought the right players, the right characters to the club, and that’s why they are champions.

“And that’s why these two teams will be the teams to beat next year.

“I know United made a bit of progress. People are talking about Chelsea… but it will be difficult to get past these two.”
