Former Chelsea and Liverpool right-back Glen Johnson believes Chelsea can finish in the top four this season despite intense competition for places towards the top of the Premier League table.
“I think the top four is still there for them to chase,” Johnson told bettingexpert.com.
“My head says that they will get top four, but then I also think about who is going to drop out?
“Two spaces are done, Manchester City and United are going to finish in the top four and Leicester are showing no signs of slowing down. I don’t know which two out of Liverpool or Leicester will drop out to make way for Chelsea.
“I think winning the FA Cup will be one of Chelsea’s aims. Winning competitions like this is great for the club and the morale and you only have to get through a couple of your games and hope other teams do you a favour by beating top sides and then you could have a fairly easier way to the final than expected. They’ll be throwing everything they can at this competition.
“In retirement they’re the winning trophies are the moments nobody can take away from you. I was fortunate enough to win the FA Cup and they’re days you never forget.”
