Chelsea have been the busiest of all English top-flight sides in the summer transfer window, spending over £200million to sign Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Malang Sarr, Thiago Silva and Kai Havertz.

Two-time CAF Champions League winner Victor Ezeji believes the Blues can win the Premier League this season following the summer arrivals at the club.

“Definitely they [Chelsea] can [win the Premier League],” Ezeji told Goal.

“They ended fourth last season with the kind of players that they had. If they continue to strengthen their squad, there is no reason why they cannot compete.

“Chelsea have always been in the top four, they are a big team to reckon with in the EPL so if they can strengthen their team a little bit more, then they can go for the title.

“Let’s not forget that in the EPL, once you make a mistake, the next team is there to capitalise on it, that’s how interesting the league is, so I think with the way they [Chelsea] are going, they are really in for business and nobody can take it away from them.

“Chelsea will definitely be league contenders this season, but we will have to wait.”
