Liverpool legend and Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher has revealed he doesn’t expect Chelsea to do better than last season.

Chelsea have signed Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva, Malang Sarr and Kai Havertz but Carragher still don’t see the blues finish above fourth place.

“Chelsea were arguably the most interesting team to watch last season for the neutral as you were never quite sure what you would get from them,” he told Teamtalk.

“They had some big wins, got into the top four, but also had some big defeats.

“Chelsea conceded a lot of goals and score a lot of goals and that to continue this season, even after all their signings this summer.

“They have signed some good players, but getting them all to fit into their team quickly will not be easy and we don’t know how Havertz, Werner and the rest will adapt to English football.

“Also, they still have a huge problem with their goalkeeper and until that is rectified, I don’t see them getting anywhere near Man City or Liverpool, whoever they buy in the top end of the pitch.

“That’s why I would back Manchester United to finish ahead of them again, even though they don’t like they are ready to get anywhere near the 90-95 point target needed to win the title.”
