ENGLAND – Former Chelsea star, Craig Burley, has predicted Frank Lampard’s side to finish ahead of Tottenham Hotspur on the Premier League table this season.
Burley believes Chelsea can challenge for the Premier League title this term because the Blues have much more talented players than Tottenham, especially in the attack position.
Tottenham is currently on top of the Premier League table ahead of Liverpool (second) and Chelsea (third) after nine games, following a 2-0 victory over Manchester City last weekend.
Asked whether he believes Chelsea will finish above Jose Mourinho’s side this term, Burley told ESPN, “Oh yeah. I think Chelsea are a much more talented team than Spurs.
“Tottenham have a good squad, but Chelsea have an unbelievable amount of attacking players.
“They got great experience with the signing of Thiago Silva, they have got a natural left-back in Ben Chilwell. The rise of Reece James has been meteoric.
“They have strengthened their goalkeeper situation, and Frank has mentioned that N’Golo Kante is looking like the player he was a couple of years ago.
“I just think Chelsea have better options [than Tottenham]. They are in as good shape as they can be to mount a title challenge.”
