Chelsea’s last five Premier League games compared to Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham

The Premier League season is approaching its most exciting phase, with the title, top four and relegation all yet to be decided. But Chelsea fans can relax with their side largely outside the chaos this time around.

While Thomas Tuchel’s side have yet to confirm their place in next season’s Champions League, the Blues sit comfortably in third in the standings, drifting in the title race, but also eight points away from Tottenham in fifth place. They may not admit it yet, but in a few weeks the focus will undoubtedly be on an FA Cup final clash with Liverpool.

On Thursday, Chelsea played a 1-1 draw with Manchester United in what must have been the least hyped clash between the two sides in decades. But in the wake of the draw, football.london takes a look at the club’s remaining matches and how they compare to the pursuit platoon.

Everton (A) – May 1

The next game is an away game, with a familiar face in between. That, of course, is Everton boss Frank Lampard, who has taken over the struggling Toffees in hopes of keeping them afloat this season.

That was no easy task as the side fell into the drop zone this weekend with Burnley’s win over Wolves and their loss to Merseyside rivals Liverpool.

Wolves (H) – May 7

The Blues then make the long-awaited return to Stamford Bridge, facing Wolves. While Bruno Lage’s squad has never been touted as full-fledged contenders for a European finish this season, they are just three points behind West Ham in seventh and five behind Manchester United in sixth, with a game in hand over both.

It won’t be an easy challenge if they still have something to play for, especially given their ability to put up a well-pierced defense.

Leeds United (A) – 11 May

The final outing of the season is to Elland Road, which will host relegation candidates Leeds. Although they have only suffered one defeat in their last five, the Yorkshire outfit is just four points ahead of the decline and could still run into problems in the last few games.

Leicester City (H) – May 19

If the Blues manage to maintain their lead over the chasing pack, this game could have little to nothing. The Foxes have struggled for consistency all season and are in tenth place rather than aiming for Europe as they have done in recent years.

Watford (H) – May 22

The last game of the season is at home against Watford. The Hornets could be down and out at the moment, currently second bottom and nine points away from safety, although if so they will want to enter the championship at a high level.
