Top 4 has emerged as the race to watch in the past month or so after a one sided title race and the relegation battle ended with a whimper recently. The Blues with a measure of revenge for the Cup final defeat taking a giant step towards the Champions League next season with a deserved 2-1 win. The home side were bolstered by the presence of spectators in at Stamford Bridge for the last home match of the season. Observing Timo Werner , I have come to the conclusion that the German just isn’t a natural goal getter. Yes he gets into good positions, yes he creates opportunities to score for others, he simply lacks the final product to be world class. Take the amount of times his goals have been chopped off for offside for instance, a good striker knows how to time his runs. Tuchel has a big call to make with regards to that position for the UCL final.
The Foxes were never really in this one but they capitalized on a lapse in the Chelsea defense to score. Iheanacho, the scorer, had come on as a sub having been benched after an average game on Saturday. The result makes it interesting as far as the number 3 and 4 positions are concerned. Chelsea’s win assures Manchester United ,who drew with relegated Fulham,of second place so they can concentrate on Gdansk. The Blues have also handed a golden opportunity to Liverpool, who face Burnley, today of overtaking Leicester on goal difference into fourth if they win that one. Leicester DO NOT CLOSE A SEASON TOO WELL DO THEY?
