Despite sitting third in the Premier League table for most of the season, chelseaThe top four position has now become precarious with the Blues struggling for form.

However, this combined with Arsenal and Tottenham progressing slowly, many Chelsea fans fear they won’t be in the top four.
But the Blues still have a three-point lead over Arsenal and a five-point lead over Spurs, giving them some breathing room even if their latest performance against Everton worried a lot. Among the many, Ruben Loftus-Cheek as the Chelsea midfielder has berated their performances over the past few weeks and believes Everton have caught them ‘napping’. Not only that, he added that they were all disappointed with their recent form and knew they needed to improve.
“We are all very disappointed. Going into the match, we knew the atmosphere would be hostile and it would be like a final for them. We felt it straight away,” Loftus-Cheek told Chelsea’s official website.
“They came out of the blocks in the second half and caught us napping. We were fighting an uphill battle from there, the fans were behind them and it was hard to break them. It was disappointing.
“We’ve made a few mistakes in recent matches and we haven’t kept the sheets clean of individual mistakes. That’s how football is, if you keep shooting yourself in the foot it’s going to be hard to s ‘get out.
