With only four games remaining this season, the Blues are under pressure to finish in the top four. Following a recent run of poor form, the Blues must now return to winning ways or risk missing out on a place in the Champions League.
The fact that Arsenal and Tottenham must play each other before the end of the season works in Chelsea‘s favor. This means that one of the two teams, if not both, must lose points. However, Chelsea will need to return to winning ways to strengthen their top four hopes.
Take a look at the current EPL table below;
Meanwhile, let’s look at the two teams that could cause Chelsea to drop points in their remaining games;
Wolves (H) – Saturday May 7, 2022
Wolves is one team likely to cause Chelsea to lose points. Wolves are vying for a place in the Europa Conference league, and this will be their motivation for this game. Chelsea has lost one of their last three meetings with Wolves, drawing the other two. This shows, Wolves won’t be an easy opponent for Chelsea. This game will undoubtedly prevent Chelsea from extending their winning streak in their remaining games.
Leeds (A) – Wednesday May 11, 2022
Chelsea should be concerned about their game against struggling Leeds at the moment. The Whites are only two points above the relegation zone and will undoubtedly fight for every point available in this game. Chelsea could lose crucial points in this game.
Leicester (H) – Thursday 19, 2022
Despite being in the Europa Conference League semi-finals against AS Roma, Leciester are thinking about the Europa League. If they are guaranteed a spot in the final, they may choose to prioritize that game instead. This game will undoubtedly go in Chelsea’s favor.
Watford (H) – Sunday 22, 2022
By the time this game comes around, the Hornets appear to be on their way back to the Championship. They would have nothing to play for, and I expect Chelsea to win this game.
What can you say about Chelsea’s remaining fixtures?
