Just three weeks ago, Chelsea fans were hailing manager Frank Lampard, as the Blues were third in the league and just two points off Tottenham and Liverpool.

Since then, three defeats in five games have seen Chelsea drop to 6th place and 7 points behind Liverpool.

Many Chelsea fans have ruled Chelsea out of the title race, but former Everton and Manchester United striker Louis Saha has put Chelsea in a list of five clubs who can win the Premier League.

Saha, speaking exclusively to Ladbrokes at its launch of the 5-A-Side Bet on Tottenham v Fulham, said: “Liverpool are definitely the ones to beat for the Premier League title this year.

“Jurgen Klopp has such a great group of players who are eager to win every single game.

“They have so much strength in depth and you can feel their frustration when things aren’t going their way. It’s a quality a lot of other sides are lacking.

“It’s a lot more difficult for Man City this season because in terms of creating chances, it feels very much like Kevin De Bruyne is on his own now since David Silva left the club.

“There’s now less guarantee in that Man City side winning games and ultimately the title than there is in Liverpool. I’d probably say there are four or five teams in with a genuine chance of winning the title.

“I’d definitely put Man United in there, Tottenham in there for sure as well. Chelsea have a good chance too, as well as the obvious two.

“I’m actually loving the competitiveness of the Premier League this season. Football needs it.

” When you look at leagues like Spain and France where it is always the same one or two teams – it’s great to see such a wide-open league in England.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
