The title race this season will prove to be one of the most interesting we’ve seen in the Premier League era.

Chelsea are currently top of the table with 29 points after 12 round of matches, and Manchester City are just 3 points behind with 26 points. Liverpool are not far off with 25 points as they occupy third spot.

Chelsea legend John Terry has earmarked Liverpool as a major threat due to their powerful attack, as the Reds have scored the most goals this season. But he also believes that Chelsea have what it takes to win the league this season.

“Liverpool look a threat, they’ve got so many goals in them going forward,” Terry told BeIN Sports.

“Defensively I look at [Virgil] van Dijk and think I’m not sure who gets past him. We all have an off day, which he will, but at the same time they look very solid.

“Just having that threat up front, we had it at Chelsea years ago with [Didier] Drogba and [Arjen] Robben and those type of players.

“You just feel like you’re going to outscore other teams.”

Terry then hailed the depth in the Chelsea team and he believes that the return of Romelu Lukaku will be a big boost for the side.

He added: “I think the strength and depth in their [Chelsea’s] squad looks to me by far the best in the league.

“They’ve coped really well without him [Lukaku] and they’ve got players who turn up and score goals as well. I’ve been really impressed how they’ve dealt with it.

“Having Lukaku back in the run up to Christmas will be a big boost as well.”
