Chelsea will not be able to make it into Champions League qualifications spots as their squad is simply not good enough according to Pat Nevin.
“Chelsea are my team but I’ve never thought they would get top four at any point,” Nevin spoke on LoveSport radio.
“It’s not because they are awful, it just takes a long time to adapt and change what was a massively different change of system and style of play.
“I don’t think all of the players are right there for that team and I think Chelsea are right where they should be for the quality of players they’ve got.
“The bigger problem is if they don’t manage to get into the Champions League, they will have a real problem for next season if they can’t buy in some players.
“I’m sure Sarri, if he’s still there and I don’t know the answer to that, he will want to get some other players who are more suited, who can move the ball much, much more quickly in that midfield area.
“With a transfer ban, that’s a real difficulty.
“The problem Chelsea have got is that they would kind of like to stick with him because I think they would like to build on that.
“The pressure is on, they’ve never really stuck with managers but in the past they’ve always been able to throw bunches of money at it to fix it.
“I don’t know if they can do that any more! They’re in a tricky situation.”
