Glenn Hoddle has picked out Chelsea as his choice to win the Premier League title this season.
Chelsea currently lead the way at the top of the English division, albeit there’s only been 11 rounds of fixtures played so far.
Thomas Tuchel’s Blues already have 26 points on the board, with their only league defeat this campaign at home to Manchester City.
Interestingly, Man City, along with West Ham, are only three points behind in the league standings.
With so many games coming up during the rest of 2021, the title race should begin to take shape with the usual suspects at the top battling it out.
Pundit Hoddle has named former club Chelsea as his pick to win the league crown.
“Chelsea,” Hoddle answered when asked who he thinks will win this season’s Premier League title.
“I saw Man City outplay them at the Bridge and beat them 1-0, Chelsea couldn’t get near them, but they haven’t got to play Man City ever week. Chelsea look the most consistent team.”
Can Chelsea stay top before New Year showdowns?
For Chelsea, the aim has to be keeping at the summit ahead of two gigantic matches to kick off 2022. The London giants begin the next calendar year by hosting Liverpool, which comes before a trip to the Etihad Stadium to face Man City.
Tuchel’s side have nine league matches remaining this year to ensure they stay in the mix.
There are trips to Leicester City, Watford, West Ham, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Aston Villa. Meanwhile, they play at Stamford Bridge against Manchester United, Leeds United, Everton and Brighton.
Chelsea have an opportunity to continue their momentum to live up to title credentials, but they must drown out all outside noise if possible.
Tuchel’s group is still filled with plenty of youngsters that don’t possess the same kind of experience as rivals.
