Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher does not view Chelsea as serious Premier League title contenders, despite spending big in the transfer market.
According to Carragher, there is ‘as much chance of Chelsea finishing outside the top four as there is of the Blues challenging for the title.
“Are they ready to challenge Liverpool? No. Not without a new goalkeeper,” Carragher wrote in his Telegraph column.
“I said in this column a year ago I would be surprised if Chelsea qualified for the Champions League.
“Now Chelsea will expect improvement on last year. The danger with a fresh squad is Lampard’s second season is really more like the first for most managers.
“There is as much chance of them finishing outside the top four as challenging the top two.”
