Liverpool legend rates Chelsea’s chances of winning the Premier League title

Liverpool legend John Barnes believes the Premier League title race is between Liverpool and Manchester City but thinks Chelsea can also challenge for the title.

“If Manchester City are not the obvious challenger to Liverpool then there isn’t one,” Barnes told

“They are the nearest challenger and have a game in hand where they can go close with a win.

“[Gabriel] Jesus is back, which is huge for them because without Jesus or [Sergio] Aguero City play fantastic football but without that killer instinct, which will now be back with Jesus, if one of them stays fit, City will be Liverpool’s nearest challengers.

“Chelsea, Arsenal and Leicester could be challenging too, but Liverpool’s nearest challengers are Manchester City.”
