Chelsea have been tipped to challenge Liverpool and Manchester City for the Premier League title by Jamie Carragher.
The Blues are unbeaten under Maurizio Sarri since the defeat in the Community Shield clash with the Citizens at the start of the season, sitting pretty in third place and just two points behind their title rivals.
Liverpool and City clash in a mammoth tie on Sunday, giving Chelsea the opportunity to take advantage of any slips, and Carragher told Sky Sports that he believes the Blues can compete for the title.
“I wouldn’t write off Chelsea.They have a great habit of winning trophies, certainly early in a new manager’s reign. Spurs as well, after a bit of a wobble, are only four points off the top.
“But I think it will be difficult for Spurs to challenge for the title with their squad depth and how many players went to the World Cup but I wouldn’t write off Chelsea with Eden Hazard in the form he’s in.”
Chelsea tackle Southampton on Sunday, kicking off earlier than their two title rivals, before a huge clash with Manchester United after the international break.
