Former Chelsea star, Chris Sutton, has backed Thomas Tuchel’s side to win the Premier League title this season ahead of Manchester City, Liverpool and Manchester United.
Sutton believes the addition of Romelu Lukaku in Chelsea’s squad this season will make them win the English top-flight league.
Liverpool are currently on top of the Premier League table with 14 points from six games.
Man City are second with 13 points from the same number of games, followed by Chelsea and Man United.
Recall that Man City won the Premier League title last season ahead of Man United, Liverpool and Chelsea.
“Do you know what? Before the start of the season, before a ball was kicked, I was thinking Manchester City [would win the title],” Sutton told the UMM YouTube channel.
“But that was if they signed Harry Kane, and they didn’t. I am going to go for Chelsea, mainly because of [summer signing Romelu] Lukaku.
“At this moment in time, Chelsea’s defence looks so solid, they have goals in their team, you look at their attacking players…
“I’m going for Chelsea. I worry about Manchester City not signing Harry Kane, I think they will regret that and they could finish third because of it. Liverpool are the runners-up for me.”
