Arsenal great: Chelsea won't make the top four.

Arsenal legend Martin Keown has predicted Chelsea not to be in next season's top four. The former Gunner believes losing Diego Costa is bad business for the Blues. The Premier League champions Chelsea appear to be weaker than last season on paper as football experts give their take on Antonio Conte's side. Some claim Chelsea can win the title again, while majority reckon they've lost a chance of retaining the title after losing the likes of Costa and Nemanja Matic - who were key to their last two title triumphs (under Jose Mourinho and Conte).

"I am worried about Chelsea," the former England defender told the Daily Mail. "There is a risk they do not make the top four this season. They’ve lost Diego Costa. He has to be in their team! What a loss he is to them. "Why have they allowed the rift to happen between the player and manager? On top of that, Eden Hazard is injured."
