It’s Deja Vu again for Chelsea as no one seems to tip the Blues for Premier League glory yet again, despite a fantastic season in the Premier League last term, winning a record 30 games.
Surprisingly, Arsenal legend and Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson tipped Chelsea to win the league at the start of last season and has now tipped Manchester City to win this season.
Merson believes Chelsea will end up as runners up this season.
Merson in his column for Sky Sports wrote: “Too many questions are coming out of Chelsea at the moment, and a little unease.
“Last year they were fortunate: no real injuries to the squad throughout the season and they did fantastically well.
“I think they’ve got a bigger challenge this season to retain it.
“They’ll be good enough in the league, don’t get me wrong, but I think they might focus on Europe.”
He tipped Tottenham to end up in third position, Manchester United 4th, Liverpool 5th and his old side Arsenal 6th.
