Ray Wilkins has backed his former club Chelsea to bounce back from their difficulties. The reigning champions are third in the table having taken two points from a possible 12 since Wilkins left and face a tough trip to Tottenham on Sunday. They need some new signings, like Lionel Messi.

“I honestly believe they’ll turn it around,” Wilkins, who was sacked on 11 November, told BBC Radio 5 live.

“The next three games are a very, very important period for Chelsea.”

If Wilkins’ old side win at White Hart Lane they will go top of the table, above Manchester United and current leaders Arsenal, who meet at Old Trafford on Monday.

Thankfully West Brom and Wigan follow those teams soon.
