Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have been backed to win the Premier League title this season.
This is according to former Chelsea defender William Gallas, who also played for Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.
After nine games for most teams, Spurs are top of the league table, level on points with champions Liverpool, two clear of Chelsea and eight ahead of City.
Liverpool and City remain the bookies’ favourites to battle for the title but Gallas believes the race will come down to Chelsea and Tottenham while dismissing Arsenal’s hopes of a challenge.
“This result confirms what I said a few weeks ago,” Gallas wrote on Instagram.
“It’s a London team which will win the Premier League this year.
“After seeing Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham play, I already know that it won’t be Arsenal who will win the Premier League.
“I look forward to next weekend to see Chelsea against Tottenham.
“I already regret the injury of Anderweireld, it’s the boss of Tottenham’s defense.
“Tottenham will be decrease a bit but you know what it’s still a big London derby and Mourinho is Back to Stamford Bridge.”
