John Terry reckons Chelsea will still finish fourth in the Premier League despite their recent poor run of form.
The Blues currently occupy the final Champions League spot but their 2-0 defeat at home to Manchester United saw other teams drag them into a battle for fourth place.
Only four points separate Chelsea in fourth and Man Utd in seventh, with Tottenham, Sheffield United, Wolves, Arsenal and Everton no doubt fancying their chances of landing that final Champions League place.
Despite the competition, Terry is tipping Chelsea to find “another gear” before the end of the season.
“It begins with Spurs at the weekend at home,” Terry said via the Metro.
“It’s the perfect game to come and respond if you are a Chelsea supporter or player. They are probably our biggest rivals, a local derby.
“Stamford Bridge will be rocking it’s a big opportunity for players to go and show what this fixture means, show they want to fight for the shirt.
“It’s an opportunity for certain individuals, maybe there will be a few changes from tonight’s game.
“It will be tough, I just think Spurs and Man United have had a couple of good results and I think Chelsea are on the decline slightly. But I think they have another gear to go to and I think Chelsea will secure that fourth spot.”
