“I still fancy Chelsea” – Arsenal legend backs Blues to win Premier League title

-

Chelsea appear to be blowing everyone out of the water when they play in the Premier League this season.

The Blues have been impenetrable so far this season as Thomas Tuchel’s side have conceded just three goals in their opening 10 games of the season, whilst suffering just one defeat.

Currently, they sit above everyone else in the league standings as they are three points clear of Liverpool and a further five in front of Manchester City who sit third in the table.

Of course, their early season form has seen a number of bettors head to sites such as sportwetten-vergleich.at as they continue to look for the best sportsbooks around that will offer them the best odds on the Blues winning the Premier League title at this stage.

Tuchel has seen his side manage to cope without a number of key players recently, as well, which is why there are suggestions that the Stamford Bridge outfit will go on and win the crown.

One man that believes Chelsea will be able to do it is Ian Wright, with the former Arsenal legend believing the club are the best positioned to do so, although it seems he had a word for Liverpool as a potential challenger, as well as Manchester City.

‘At the start of the season I said Chelsea and I still fancy Chelsea, although they’ve got injuries now to Lukaku and Werner,’ Wright said on David Seaman’s Seaman Says podcast.

‘People say that Werner doesn’t score enough, but the fact is that Werner gives Chelsea so much and then Lukaku scores the goals.

‘I still fancy Chelsea, but Liverpool are now getting themselves into a run of form that you’re going to find very difficult for them. They’ll just slip back into that form that they did when they dominated.

‘It’s going to be City, Liverpool and Chelsea for me and I’m not sure with the fourth.

‘I don’t know who are going to be finishing fourth at the minute. I’d love West Ham to stay there.’

Of course, the injuries to Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku will have threatened to derail the club’s progress, however they have found a way to win without them, whilst also scoring 10 goals in the two games that they have missed – the 7-0 win against Norwich City and the 3-0 win at Newcastle United.

Tuchel had an immediate impact once he joined the Blues as he helped to guide them to UEFA Champions League success within a handful of months, whilst also capturing the UEFA Super Cup at the beginning of the season.

Whilst he will want to retain Europe’s elite crown, he will want to win the Premier League title and add it to his growing personal collection of titles.
