The west London side have been inconsistent during the backend of the 2019/2020 season under Frank Lampard and they are still holding onto the fourth spot in the standings which would guarantee them Champions League football next term.

The west London outfit have been largely inconsistent at home when compared to their travels this term and that has hampered their prospects of staying clear of the chasing pack for the final Champions League spot.
At present, they have only a four-point lead over Tottenham Hotspur in the race for the fourth spot and Azpilicueta has urged the team to respond strongly after the winter break, he told: “We haven’t made Stamford Bridge as solid as we would like this year. This is the best time to recover this solidity, with three big games in a row at home where we can show we are ready and able to make Stamford Bridge a tough place to come. With the fans we have had some disappointments at home altogether. When these three opportunities come we have to take them one by one, and hopefully we can build up on this. It’s key for the success of the season.” Continue reading
