Chelsea's battle for the top four

Chelsea are currently in pole position in the race for 4th place.

With two Premier League games of the season left to play, the Blues sit 4th in the table.

They are two points above 5th place Arsenal and three points above 6th place Manchester United with a vastly superior goal difference.

However, Chelsea don't have the easiest end to the season, they face Watford at home and then Leicester City away.

Luiz on Sarri-ball

Whether Chelsea earn a Champions League place this season may decide how successful people think Maurizio Sarri has been during his first year at Stamford Bridge.

The Italian hasn't had the easiest start to life in the Premier League.

His infamous 'Sarri-ball' philosophy hasn't always gone down to well with Chelsea fans.

Jorginho, often seen as Sarri's golden boy and the epitome of Sarri-ball also hasn't exactly been a fan favourite.

Despite this, Chelsea made a League Cup final, could finish in the top four and are close to a Europa League final.

Chelsea defender David Luiz has also come out in support of Sarri and his 'amazing' tactics:

"It's a philosophy to have a lot of possession, create a lot of opportunities and he has tried to introduce that to us.

 "I think he has already done amazing as in the past people were saying 'Chelsea don't control the game, Chelsea don't play with a lot of the ball, Chelsea just plays counter-attacks' everyone was criticising Chelsea.

"Now we control the games and sometimes they criticise us because we don't win the game with a lot of possession.

I think his philosophy is amazing, it's trying to play football.

"This takes time and we are trying to improve as soon as possible. It's the way I love football, the way I enjoy football not just playing. But watching and I think I love his philosophy."As quoted by the Metro.
