The Blues have a three-point advantage over fourth-placed Tottenham heading into the final day of the campaign, but an 18 advantage on goal difference.

Christian Pulisic inexplicably missed a tap-in that would have sealed third place for the Blues with one game to spare.

The US striker was scraped when it was much easier to score, so Chelsea had to finish the job in Sunday’s final game of the season against Watford at Stamford Bridge.

Todd Boehly was at Stamford Bridge again with a new era for the club on the horizon, despite the setback over the sale of Chelsea earlier in the week.

However, Darren Ambrose doesn’t think the future looks very bright for Chelsea once Roman Abramovich officially hands over the keys.

“I think these are worrying times for Chelsea,” Ambrose said on Drive. “I think they could be fighting for the top four next season.

“I believe Tottenham will come well, I still believe Arsenal will get strong again. They seem to be supporting Mikel Arteta, they are giving him money.

“Leicester and West Ham, they will also become stronger.

“It’s a totally different club now. They don’t fire left, right and center managers. They lose great players – Rudiger, losing him is huge.

“I think they will struggle to make the top four next season.”
