Paul Merson reckons that wins over both Manchester United and Tottenham will be enough to hand Chelsea a top four finish.

Chelsea are currently fourth in the Premier League with 41 points, while Tottenham have 37. Another bitter rival Manchester United have 35 points.

Merson told Sky Sports: “If you had asked me five weeks ago if Chelsea had a problem with their goalkeeper, I would have said no, I thought Kepa was good. He has had a bad time. I thought he made a big decision, I think that is one of his biggest decisions since he became a manager in football if I am being honest.

“Willy Caballero made a mistake, which can happen when you change the goalies, but he is a decent person to come in. I know he made a mistake, he is probably too keen and he has not played for a while. I am all right with Chelsea at the moment, they have two big games coming up – Man Utd and Tottenham at home – if they win both of them, for me they will finish in the top four.”
