In an uneventful derby, last night, Manchester United and Arsenal both got point each.

Top four-fight this season looks like it’s going to be between a couple of teams. With City and Liverpool far ahead, rest of the caravan will look to catch the two remaining Champions League spots.

Manchester United and Arsenal were prime candidates before the season, along with Tottenham, as not a lot was expected from Chelsea.

However, Frank Lampard turned things around at Stamford Bridge. The young Chelsea core plays some entertaining football while getting better and better result-wise.

Jamie Carragher took notice and praised Chelsea after abysmal Monday night matchup between United and Arsenal.

Speaking for Sky Sports, Carragher said:

“The one team looking at that tonight who will be encouraged is Chelsea.

“At the start of the season, I thought Chelsea might struggle to get into the top-four. It will still be a fight but even in these early stages, they have more quality than what we have seen from these two teams.”

Chelsea and Frank Lampard will try to keep up their good form in the Champions League. They will travel to France to face Lille, before heading to Southampton next weekend in the Premier League clash.

However, Lampard’s job won’t be made easier by Brendan Rodgers.

Former Liverpool manager is leading Foxes into what looks like a top-four battle. Granted, it’s still early days, but all the signs point to The Foxes as a serious top-four candidate.

It’s also worth noting that Manchester United won’t just sit back. There are already rumors of them looking to bring in a new striker to replace out-of-form Rashford.
