The battle to finish inside the Premier League top four is heating up with the season heading into its final months.

Chelsea‘s chances are incredibly slim after their dismal run of form in recent months, winning just two of their last 14 Premier League matches. It sees Graham Potter’s side 11 points off the pace behind Tottenham Hotspur, albeit Spurs have played one game more.

They have the chance to close the gap this Sunday when they travel across the capital to face their city rivals in north London.

A defeat will all but end their top four hopes, which are already all but over currently anyway, while victory could be the moment Chelsea and Potter need to kick on, with the 47-year-old under pressure from supporters. However, he still, most importantly, retains the backing from the club’s hierarchy.

Chelsea already know their March schedule once they have played Spurs, with three games to play next month.

March 4: Leeds United (h) – 3pm | Premier League

March 11: Leicester City (a) – 3pm | Premier League

March 18: Everton (h) – 5.30pm – Sky Sports | Premier League

If, and it’s a big if, Chelsea manage to claim some victories in their next four heading into April, while other teams above them drop points, it could give the Blues a glimpse of hope of still achieving Champions League qualification next week.

Chelsea still have big teams to play this season who are also competing for European spots, and wins over their rivals could be huge in their bid to pull off an incredible feat of somehow securing top-tier European football next season.

They face Liverpool at home in April, which was rearranged after it was postponed last September due to the late Queen’s funeral taking place in London that weekend. Meanwhile, they also travel to Manchester United and Arsenal before the month closes out.

Chelsea will host Liverpool on Tuesday 4th April at Stamford Bridge at 8pm, with the game live on Sky Sports. Brentford at home is sandwiched in between the away trips to Old Trafford and the Emirates.

A trip to Manchester awaits on Saturday 22nd April at 5.30pm, however it could be moved to the Sunday at 2pm should Manchester United be in Europa League action the Thursday before or they be in the FA Cup semi-finals.

A London derby against Arsenal awaits to close out the month on Saturday 29th April at 5.30pm. Chelsea will be hoping the Gunners aren’t on the verge of clinching the title, or that they themselves aren’t out of top four contention yet.

April 1: Aston Villa (h) – 5.30pm – Sky Sports | Premier League
