Liverpool legend Graeme Souness has named Chelsea as one of the three favourites to win the Premier League this season.

According to Souness, only three teams – Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool – can win the Premier League title this season.

“I agree this is the strongest top four we’ve seen in the Premier League for several years,” Souness told The Times.

“But with the caveat that there are still more question marks against Manchester United than any of the other title contenders – Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City.

“United have not won any major trophies recently and have spent a great deal of money. Liverpool and City have been the real deal for the past few years and Chelsea have won the Champions League.

“If you put it like that, it’s common sense. The other ones have not only won trophies, but the big trophies, the important ones.”
