Chelsea have won six straight Premier League games which has taken the Blues from the second half of the table to currently third position.

The 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon took Chelsea to second position above Manchester City and Leicester City, but the Foxes defeated also beat Arsenal on Saturday to overtake Chelsea to second position.

Liverpool will host Manchester City today, and either of them losing points will mean Chelsea will be closer to the top of the table.

Former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves has now tipped Chelsea to be part of the title race and hints that the Blues must work on the defence.

“Frank [Lampard] is making all the right decisions,” Hargreaves said on BT Sport.

“They’re second – that’s unbelievable. They’ve conceded as many goals as Newcastle.

“Offensively, they’re outrageously good. If they just tighten up that defensive part, they’ll be there in the title race.”
