Chelsea have given themselves an outside chance of qualifying for next season’s Champions League with their 1-0 win over Liverpool on Sunday, but the nature of the remaining fixtures explains why they are still available at 7/2 with Bet365. Liverpool’s superior goal difference means a win at home to Brighton will see them secure a top four finish, while Tottenham play their last two games at Wembley against Newcastle and Leicester – two teams who appear to have downed tools ahead of the summer break.
Chelsea have a great chance of getting six points from their last two games, at home to Huddersfield and away at Newcastle, but their late surge may well have come too late to spare them from the Europa League. They could still end the season by getting their hands on some silverware, however, and their current run of 5 straight wins, the last 3 without conceding, will give them confidence that they can get the better of Manchester United in the FA Cup final in a fortnight’s time. Antonio Conte’s side are the Even money outsiders to lift the trophy, with United a best of 5/6 at Betfred.
