Newcastle United and former Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez has tipped Chelsea to challenge for the title this season.
When asked if Chelsea can win the league this year, Benitez said: “I think so.
“Maybe at the moment, there are three teams that you could say that they are a little bit ahead of the others, for me – Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City – because of the level, the performances last year and the money they spent.
“Then Manchester United, Tottenham and Arsenal, they have to go back to things they were doing well. They have quality in the squad and they can compete, for sure.
“But if you have to pick three, I will pick these. They have enough quality to do well.”
