Chelsea tasted defeat for the first time under Thomas Tuchel, as the Blues were beaten 5-2 by struggling West Brom at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.
Chelsea are still 4th in the league, pending when West Ham play Wolves, and the Blues have also seen the gap ahead of Liverpool cut short to just two points.
Former Manchester United centre-back Rio Ferdinand had previously backed Chelsea to finish in the top four, but he’s now confident that it’s Liverpool who will most certainly snatch a top four finish.
“I think Liverpool are going to get in there now,” Rio Ferdinand told BT Sport.
“The result they got at the weekend, the performance and the confidence that will give that team.
“Fabinho back as well is a huge, huge, huge difference. I just think Liverpool with how they’ve been in the last two seasons they have that know-how, that nous to go and put a run of results together.
“Out of Chelsea, Leicester, Liverpool and Spurs, the team who could go on a six, seven, eight-game run [of wins], I think Liverpool are that team.
“I’ve got a sneaky feeling they will. I hope not if I’m being honest.”
