Jamie Carragher believes Chelsea FC will drop out of the Premier League’s top four after their next three games.

The Blues limped to a humiliating 4-1 defeat at London rivals Watford on Monday night following Tiemoue Bakayoko’s sending off.

The west London side have lost successive Premier League games after Bournemouth were 3-0 winners at Stamford Bridge earlier this month.

Chelsea FC start the 27th round of Premier League fixtures in fourth place in the table but a mere point ahead of fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

Antonio Conte is naturally facing speculation surrounding the Italian coach’s future at the west London club following his disappointing run.

Chelsea FC will make the trip to 20th placed West Brom in their next top-flight fixture before trips to Manchester City and Manchester United.

Former Liverpool FC defender Carragher believes Chelsea could fall out of the top four after their next three Premier League games.

“After the next three league games, you’d be very surprised if Chelsea are in the top four,” Carragher told Sky Sports.

Chelsea FC will take on La Liga leaders Barcelona in their Champions League round of 16 tie later this month.

The Blues haven’t won Europe’s premier club competition since 2012 when Chelsea FC beat Bayern Munich on penalties.
