Former Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka believes Frank Lampard’s new-look squad is capable of chasing down Liverpool and Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.
The Blues have welcomed some exciting newcomers this summer, such as Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Malang Sarr. And this might not be the end of their recruitment plan for this transfer window.
Anelka believes fresh faces will allow the West Londoners to be more competitive in the upcoming campaign, with there every reason to believe that they can challenge for the biggest prizes on offer.
The former Chelsea striker told Stadium Astro: “I think they have a great chance to win the title. It depends on what Liverpool and Manchester City will do as well.
“But he’s [Lampard] got the quality to finish fourth in the league last season and, with the signings, he’s got the quality to win it.
“It depends after in terms of the experience of the players whether they are strong enough to race until the end but the quality is in Chelsea as well.
“So I believe first, second or third. We will see a great Chelsea at the end.”
