Though Chelsea had a mixed start in this season of Premier League, the team has finally perfected its form. Frank Lampard continues to get the best out of the young talents the team has and is making sure they perform well at every game they’re at. Currently, Chelsea is in third place behind Leicester. It’s one team to look for if you bet online on sites like Betway.

On the other hand, great teams like Manchester United and Tottenham are underperforming in the initial stages of the league. They have a lot of catching up to do if they want to make it to the top 4. Infact, right now all Chelsea needs to do is just overcome the goal difference between them and Leicester and they would hold the second position. It’s another thing to consider as a fan.

A Look at Chelsea’s Chances

Glen Johnson, the former England Defender also sided with Chelsea against Manchester United and Tottenham. He’s very positive that if the team continues to perform well in its current form, they will be able to finish well. At the current position with the mentorship of Frank Lampard, the team is not in the mood of backing down at all. They are set up for exciting games at Stamford Bridge, which is where the other four teams are unable to perform that well.

According to Johnson, Lampard is planning way ahead of his time. Since the team hasn’t been able to add any players in this transfer window, they are building for their future. Not only will they win this way, but they will also be able to create a stronger and better team for the upcoming seasons. Therefore, by the time Lampard is willing to bring in new faces in the team, the current players would be a much better version of themselves.

Who are the best players to watch out for?

If you play on Betway, you know that every week is a new one for the players. That being said, the star players of the team are currently Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, and Fikayo Timori. Out of the three, Abraham has proven to be the most promising by scoring eight Premier League goals in the number of matches he’s played.

The footballer has translated his form from the Championship to the Premier League quite well and showcases good talent. He has the potential qualities to become a star player in the league. Therefore, the transfer bn has somehow proven to be a blessing in disguise.

Overall, the rocky start of the team may have thrown the predictors off, but their game is improving by the day. Chelsea is currently performing at its best and is set to win more matches at their home ground. The Championship team that moved on to Premier League is quickly adapting to the new strategies and format and is leaving no stone unturned to win. Given the strong players, a good mentor and only a goal difference between them and Leicester, Chelsea can surely finish in the Top 4.
