Former Leicester City and Derby County star, Robbie Savage, has said that Chelsea will finish in the Premier League top four this season.
This is despite a slow start for the Blues so far this season.
Savage further warns Arsenal that they won’t win the title.
The Blues are currently sitting 12th in the Premier League table after winning just one of their opening four games
Their first game was a 1-1 draw with Liverpool before a 3-1 loss to West Ham followed by 1-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest.
Savage told Planet Sport Bet, “When Mauricio Pochettino was appointed I thought Chelsea would get in the top four, and I still believe that.
“They’ve signed so many good, hungry players and with a manager like Pochettino and the way he can develop players and teams, I think that Chelsea will still finish in the top four.
“With no European football the extra time on the training pitch is going to be so valuable to Pochettino.
“When you look at how many players they’ve brought in it is going to take him a lot of time to galvanize this group and to get them playing the way that he wants.
“Pochettino has to find a system where the striker will score 20 or more goals a season, as the last No. 9 to do that for Chelsea was Diego Costa.
“And as soon as he does that I think Chelsea will start firing on all cylinders and will, with time, be a huge success and start challenging for trophies under him.
“The biggest thing is that he needs time. Graham Potter didn’t get that and it’s important that the board and Todd Boehly give that manager time. If they do that I believe that Chelsea will start challenging for trophies.”
