Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has admitted his side was lucky to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
The Blues lost 2-1 at Aston Villa in their last Premier League fixture of the campaign.
However, the defeat did not prove fatal, as Leicester City threw away a 2-1 lead against Tottenham to lose 4-2 at the King Power.
It meant Liverpool and Chelsea joined the two Manchester clubs in finishing in top four.
“We had enough chances. We did not score, conceded two cheap goals and it was a defeat in the end. We are lucky to escape today.
“We did not hit the target, the last touch was not precise enough. It was a very strong last half an hour and we had two big chances to score. We fought, tried everything but forgot to score,” Tuchel said after the game.
