Chelsea have started the season on a bang. The Blues have won the Super Cup and started the Premier League campaign with a 3-0 home win over Crystal Palace.

Chelsea are being tipped to win the title under Thomas Tuchel, especially after winning the Champions League last season.

Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy has hailed the quality of the Chelsea team and hailed the strength in depth and is backing Chelsea to win the league, as he revealed what makes Chelsea a better team than Leicester City.

“They have built some squad at Stamford Bridge and are brimming with confidence. They ended last season by winning the Champions League and took that form into the game against Crystal Palace,” he said.

“For Thomas Tuchel to make so many changes and for everyone to be at it right away was impressive.

“The difference between Chelsea and Leicester, for example, is if Leicester lose Wilfred Ndidi or Youri Tielemans there might be a drop off in their midfield.

“If Kante sits out a game, like he did against Palace, Chelsea call on two top internationals — Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic. That’s why Chelsea have to be taken seriously.”
