THOMAS TUCHEL will sensationally QUIT Chelsea after growing frustrated at this summer’s transfer activity, according to Piers Morgan.

The Blues finished third last season as the “best of the rest” – miles behind Manchester City and Liverpool.
But with Arsenal and Tottenham improving drastically over the summer, Piers reckons North London will pip West London to the top four.
After tipping City to win the league again, Piers added: “Jurgen Klopp’s team will fall short of City because Darwin Nunez is no Sadio Mane, an underrated steely-eyed assassin whose departure was a huge blow to Liverpool’s title hopes.
“As for my other top-four picks, I’m convinced North London’s rivals will prevail over rouble-deprived Chelsea and a Manchester United side so awful that Cristiano Ronaldo will take a pay cut to leave them.”
