Frank Lampard reckons Chelsea are going to win the league this season, a feeling shared by many before the season had even started.
Their home defeat to Liverpool, their 3-1 defeat to Roma, their home draw with Spurs who were woeful, as well as being knocked out on penalties by Championship side Burnley, suggests they aren’t as sturdy as some would describe them as. Although that said, it would be stupid deny the threat they pose to us retaining the title.
Lampard seemingly feels the same way about us, believing we are the side most likely to stand in Chelsea’s way this season.
“I do believe we’re going to win the league this time,” said Lampard. “Manchester United deserved to win it last time but with the squad we’ve got, the belief running through the players and the quality of the manager, I think we’ll do it.” The biggest threat? “I would still say Man U.”
