Former Chelsea star, Joe Cole has thrown in the towel, and has tipped Chelsea to run away with the title this season.

After watching Chelsea come from behind to overcome Manchester City at the Etihad, Joe Cole believes Chelsea will win the title this season.

The 35-year-old, who now plies his trade at American club Tampa Bay Rowdies, told talkSPORT:

“They have been excellent [this season]. With the benefit of not having European football, Antonio Conte has been able to get his philosophy across and the way he wants to play.

“You have seen them improve steadily from the start of the season and that result on the weekend was a real marker down in the title race. That is the first proper big game this season and you have to look at Chelsea being the favourites now.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
