According to former Liverpool player Jason McAteer, Chelsea aren’t title contenders despite Chelsea’s good form.

McAteer believes the title race is still between Liverpool and Manchester City.

Chelsea are currently eight points behind Liverpool, level on points with second placed Leicester and one point ahead of fourth placed Manchester City.

McAteer told the Racing Post: “I still think there will be a title race and it will be between Liverpool and Man City.

“What Brendan Rodgers is doing at Leicester is outstanding and the job Frank Lampard is doing at Chelsea is probably even more impressive.

“I remember speaking to Frank when Chelsea and Liverpool played the Super Cup in Istanbul and you could hear his concerns.

“Where were the goals going to come from? Could Mason Mount do for Chelsea what he had done for Derby? Would he miss Antonio Rudiger? But he and his players have answered all those questions and more.

“I’m a big fan of Frank and think Chelsea can continue to improve but they aren’t title contenders this season.”
