Pat Nevin predicts where Chelsea FC will finish this season

Former Chelsea player Pat Nevin has predicted the Blues to finish third in the Premier League this season behind Manchester City and Liverpool. Ahead of the 2020/2021, the Blues have been busy with the transfer window. Chelsea have already signed seven players - Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva, and Malang Sarr as well as Kai Havertz. And now, Frank Lampard's side are preparing to face Brighton on Monday as the new season opener. Speaking to BBC Sport, Nevin said: “You have got the top two and Chelsea will be nipping at their heels. “It is not just the fact they have spent money, it is the way they have done it – having Timo Werner and Kai Havertz to go with Christian Pulisic is kind of scary, but probably more for the next three or four seasons as opposed to this one because they will need to settle in. “So, they are looking good. Everyone knows their problem has been defensively, and the centre-back position might still be one. “A lot of people say goalkeeper is as well – and it may be – but I don’t think it is the reason they conceded so many goals last season; that was a wider defensive issue. “I have a feeling they may concede just as many this season, but will score a hell of a lot more.” source - TheSportReview Join us on Telegram
