Former Blues Ashley Cole has got some Arsenal fans all riled up with his comment on the Premier League top-four race after Chelsea beat Watford on Saturday.

Once a Blue, always a Blue — it seems the perfect phrase to describe the former Chelsea left-back after last night’s comment after Chelsea defeated Watford.

Chelsea have now reclaimed their spot in the top four and restored a two-point gap to fifth-placed Manchester United and a five-point cushion over sixth-placed Wolverhampton.

However, Cole believes Arsenal (7th) and Sheffield United (8th) still have the chance to finish in the Champions League spots at the end of the season.

Cole said: “If you are saying Arsenal there, why can’t you say Sheffield United (are also in the race)?

“For me, I think it’s too hard to pick. I just hope Chelsea make it.”

Reminding Cole that he also had a spell with another potential contender, presenter Kelly Cates then asked: “And Arsenal?” which Cole then replied: “And Arsenal.”

Jamie Redknapp responded to Cole’s reluctant answer: “You don’t mean it.”

While it pleased some Blues fans, apparently it also angered some Arsenal supporters on Twitter.
