Chelsea is six-points clear at the summit of the Premier League after 17 games and Chelsea legend Frank Lampard believes the chasing pack can’t stop Chelsea from winning the league.
Lampard told Sky Sports: “(Manchester) City are in a decent position and there are teams with quality for sure – I think Liverpool are very good to watch this year and Arsenal.
“I think those will be the group chasing but with Chelsea, when you take that kind of gap into Christmas, I think barring suspensions or injuries to top players like (Eden) Hazard and (Diego) Costa, I fancy them to carry it through.
“As a Chelsea man, it is great to see. All credit to everybody there.
“The manager obviously changed the system after a defeat at Arsenal. Nobody would have fancied them to be anywhere near winning the league at that point and now they look the dominant team.
“I don’t like to tempt fate but I can’t see anyone who has got the consistency to close the gap, so I fancy Chelsea strongly now.”
