Paul Merson thinks that Chelsea are now in "pole position" to finish in the top four. Since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel, the Blues have not suffered any defeats, having won eight and drawn three games.
Tuchel's side are currently 4th with 50 points, 5 points ahead of 7th placed Tottenham.
Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports
, Merson said: “Chelsea are now in pole position to finish in the top four after a big week of results, but it is not a foregone conclusion.
“They have to keep producing right until the end of the season.
“There are not too many concerns about injuries at the moment. They have a really good squad and we’ve seen it utilised in the last few weeks by Tuchel. [N’Golo] Kante and [Mason] Mount were rested on Monday, Olivier Giroud is on the bench too and Tammy Abraham is not even getting a look in.
“It’s far from job done, though. They need to keep this run going because we’ve already seen this season that things can change very quickly.
“West Ham keep winning and Tottenham are flying again. It’s lucky Chelsea have been on this brilliant run and are in the position they are in because otherwise, they’d have been out of it.”
Chelsea's upcoming game in the Premier League is against Leeds United on Saturday. March 13.
