Chelsea skipper Gary Cahill has given an honest assessment of his team’s chances of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.

The Blues have had a disappointing campaign in the Premier League offering no fight in defending the title with their status as a club in Europe’s elite competition under severe threat.

Fourth-placed Tottenham are five points ahead of Chelsea with just four league games remaining. Despite going into the upcoming games with high morale as his team booked a place in the FA Cup final on Sunday, Cahill admits he’s doubtful over top four chances as he’s quoted by Sky Sports:

“I am not being negative by any stretch, but the games are running out and the teams in there are very good, so if they do let it up it’ll be very, very surprising.”

Chelsea qualified for the FA Cup final in the 2-0 win over Southampton on Sunday.

Even though it seems there is no light at the end of the tunnel for us in the league this season, you would think the captain would show a bit more positivity in uplifting everyone around the club.

Hopefully the doubters can be proved wrong and Antonio Conte’s men can salvage a place in the Champions League against all odds.
