Joe Cole predicts where Chelsea FC will finish in the Premier League this season

Former Chelsea FC star Joe Cole believes the Blues are firmly in the race to make the top four and they could go further and potentially challenge for the Premier League title.

The Blues suffered an early setback for the season with the transfer ban and not many predicted that they would be competing for the top four under new boss Frank Lampard.

They continued to make a mixed beginning to the current campaign but over the past few months, they have built up a six-match winning streak in the Premier League which has propelled them to the fourth spot.

Moreover, they now have a comfortable nine-point gap over Sheffield United in the fifth spot and Cole believes his former side are quietly chipping away in the quest for Champions League football.

He added that the Blues could yet pose an outside challenge for the title with just five points separating them from league leaders Liverpool. The Reds will face Manchester City in their game in hand on Sunday.

“I think they’re quietly chipping away at it. Frank won’t thank us for this, I think he’d like to be even more quiet about it. Going into these two weeks now, he’ll really take stock, reflect on how well Chelsea have started and they’re in amongst it. I don’t think the gaffer will thank me for this because you like to be the quiet ones coming from the outside in the title race,” he told BT Sport, via The Express.
