Chelsea currently has 19 points (a point behind Manchester City who top the league) but Manchester United legend and ex-Manager of Manchester United Sir Alex Ferguson doesn’t see Chelsea as title contenders this season.
Despite Manchester United 4-0 loss to Chelsea on Sunday plus the fact they have just 14 points (5 behind Chelsea and six behind leaders Manchester City), Ferguson still tips Manchester United ahead of Chelsea in the title race.
“It’s harder to predict than it was for many years,” Ferguson told German publication Kicker.
“I think there are five potential candidates: Manchester City as favourites, Tottenham and Liverpool, but also Man United are still there if we get some consistency soon.
“Even when you are trailing by six, eight points, it’s still possible to catch one or two teams.
“The rivalry and the experience of [Pep] Guardiola and [Jose] Mourinho makes for an exciting competition, and you shouldn’t forget Arsenal.”
Chelsea will definitely fight for the title this season and Chelsea’s defeat of Manchester United on Sunday shows Chelsea are ready for the fight. Watch out for Chelsea, Sir Alex Ferguson.
