Arsene Wenger thinks Chelsea will struggle to finish in the Premier League top four this season.

The Blues haven’t lost in any league match, since Thomas Tuchel’s appointment as the club boss. However, Arsenal’s legendary coach thinks, Chelsea could still struggle to finish in the Champions League qualifications spots.

“I would say it’s a fair result with one team happier than the other one, Southampton certainly the happier after stopping their losing slump,” he said.

“What’s a bit worrying for Chelsea is they were not at their best, which happens in this league, but you don’t feel a huge potential in there, not on the tactical side nor on the physical side nor on the aggressive side nor on the organisational side.

“So I looked just at their number of points, on that run they will make 63 points. That could be a fraction short of top four.

“I just think they made 43 points out of 25 games and on that average it gets you to 63 and 63 usually you’re out.

“They can of course have a great run but today their game was a bit frustrating for them. They didn’t find the fluency to put Southampton under pressure.”
