Chelsea have started the season in poor form, and the Blues are 7th in the Premier League, having played a game less than their rivals.

Chelsea’s season has further taken an unexpected turn, following the dismissal of Thomas Tuchel as manager.

It’s yet to be seen how Graham Potter will fare as manager, but the bookmakers don’t seem to rate Chelsea highly this season.

The Blues are predicted to finish sixth in the league this term. As for the title, Graham Potter’s men are tipped 2.4% to win it – that’s next to nothing.

Interestingly, Chelsea have been tipped to finish the season in 6th place.

The bookies’ favourites to win the Premier League this season is Manchester City with a 75% chance.

Man City, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham are predicted to finish in the top four.

Chelsea are 8 points behind Arsenal who currently top the league, although the Blues have played a game less. Chelsea are 3 points behind Brighton who are currently in fourth.
