Liverpool legend Graeme Souness has warned Chelsea that the club are in danger of missing out on a top four place because of a certain Newcastle.

Chelsea are currently 5th in the league – howbeit level on points with Newcastle who have played a game more, but have a superior goal difference.

Souness has warned that Chelsea and Liverpool may miss out on top due to the rising form of Newcastle United.

“I know how difficult that job is [Newcastle manager], how difficult it can be to get everyone on your side,” Souness told talkSPORT.

“But I think the manager has done a fantastic job.

“When I saw them play against Liverpool, go to Anfield which is a hostile place, a difficult place to play, they arrived at Anfield and wanted to play Liverpool at their game and I thought they were fabulous.

“What I saw yesterday appeared to be a team with no fear, a team that have gone to the Tottenham Hotspur stadium and said, ‘Come on then. Is that all you’ve got?’ and they were fabulous – on the front foot, aggressive and watching the game, they looked like a fitter team than what Spurs did.

“Newcastle right now are absolutely on fire – they are not a team any side wants to play right now.

“Look at Miguel Almiron, he couldn’t buy a goal in the Premier League. Now he’s got, what, a goal in three straight games? He’s starting to look at home now.”

Asked which teams in the established top-six Newcastle could replace, Souness added: “The normal order of things is changing…

“You have to say that Liverpool are in danger, you have to say maybe Chelsea are in danger – so there is an opening there for Newcastle.

“The teams I’m watching right now, and you can’t guarantee it, but I fancy Newcastle in terms of performances and attitude.

“They don’t suffer a load of injuries either and they could easily end up in the top four.”
