Despite having finished above Spurs last season and having won the Europa League, bet365 have Chelsea finishing in fourth place.

NO SUPRISE: Will the sale of club talisman Eden Hazard, it is no wonder a drop in quality is expected.

Chelsea legend and inexperienced new boss, Frank Lampard will have a tough task to challenge for the title this season. Having lost the clubs best player and not being allowed to bring anyone in, it will be a case of making the best of what is already there.

With this being said, Chelsea have a star-studded set-up nonetheless:

  • N’Golo Kante
  • Willian
  • Pedro
  • Christian Pulisic (Previously agreed-upon transfer)

And if Lampard can get Chelsea back to their solid defensive ways, confidence will surely start to grow within the London based side.
