Ashley Cole believes Chelsea can challenge for the Premier League title this season.
Cole was part of the Chelsea side that won the 2009-10 Premier League, and he is backing his former club to mount a serious title challenge this season.
The Blues have started with two wins from two under new head coach Maurizio Sarri, beating Huddersfield and another of Cole’s former clubs, Arsenal. Cole claims that Chelsea can continue the positive momentum and battle with the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool for their sixth Premier League title.
Cole told ESPN FC: “Chelsea have gone about their business a little bit quiet in terms of having a new manager.
“They should be fighting for the title, but I don’t think people are [thinking that way] at the minute. To get six points from two games, it’s a fantastic start. They’ve just got to keep going.”
Meanwhile, reports suggest N’Golo Kante has told Real Madrid and PSG that he wants to stay at Chelsea, which will be a huge boost for their aspirations this season.
