Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand believes Chelsea will miss out on the top four this season, with Leicester City taking the final Champions League spot.

According to Ferdinand, there’s a bit too much for Chelsea to do now to finish in the top four.

“I think there’s a bit to much to do maybe,” Ferdinand told BT Sport when asked about Chelsea’s top four chances. “Leicester are still a fairly consistent team and I think the other teams will just be able to stay ahead of them.

“I think Tuchel will get it right there, I do like him as a manager. I think the players have taken to him immediately but I think there will be a little bit to do maybe to get in there.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if they did, but that’s what I’ve gone for.

“I think the remit is 100% Champions League football at a minimum once he’s gone in there. We’ll have to see with the way that regime is run he could get the sack.

“I think Frank’s [Lampard] sitting at home saying I could’ve got that team in the top four.”
