EPL: Ian Wright names Chelsea player that will cost Tuchel top-four place


Arsenal legend, Ian Wright, has expressed his fear that Timo Werner could cost Chelsea a place in the Premier League top four.

The Blues head into the final day of the season in third position, ahead of Liverpool and Leicester City.

Their 2-1 win over the Foxes earlier this week, ensures Thomas Tuchel’s men have their destiny is their own hands ahead of Sunday’s clash at Aston Villa.

Dean Smith’s side beat Tottenham Hotspur in midweek, and with Jack Grealish now back in the fold, Wright believes there could be one last sting in the tail.

He said: “I think Leicester will beat Tottenham, I think Liverpool will beat Crystal Palace and I think that Aston Villa will beat Chelsea.

“When we are looking at the goals they are going to need and the goals that Chelsea miss and Villa maybe with finishing off the season with Jack Grealish and Ollie Watkins, you can just see a Villa team causing them problems.

“You can see that you don’t know what Chelsea’s coming but one thing is for sure, Timo Werner will probably get offside a couple of times, maybe score a couple of goals, he’s capable of assisting, but he will miss a couple of chances which they can’t afford.”
