But Bridge told PA Sport, "They've been really inconsistent. You can see the fans aren't really happy. I don't think the players are happy, and then probably the manager isn't either.
“I'm surprised he's still there. And with the transfer ban and everything, what are they going to do?
“With Chelsea at the moment, it could end up going through a pretty bad spell.
“They can still achieve Champions League football (for the 2020/21 campaign) because when you look at the likes of Tottenham, Arsenal and (Manchester) United, they haven't been great either.
“But will they compete (for the title) with Liverpool and (Manchester) City? I don't think so, unless there is no transfer ban and the manager gets to buy the players he wants, or a new manager comes in and changes it up a bit because it has been a poor season."
