Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand believes only London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham are capable of overtaking Chelsea in the league this season.
“There are ways of getting at Chelsea. There’s space behind their wingbacks. But they have the knowhow to get a result at Anfield,” Ferdinand wrote in his column for The Sunday Times.
“If Liverpool don’t win, they’re out of the title race – though in reality, I see Arsenal and Tottenham as the only clubs capable of overhauling Chelsea.
“Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City are fighting it below them. The title race is a matter for London. Fourth place is a battle for the northwest.”
