Former Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri has spoken on the possibility of Chelsea emerging as champions of the Premier League in the ongoing 2018/19 season.
Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea were halted by London neighbors West Ham at the London Stadium on Sunday bringing their 100% start to an end with a barren draw.
After the game, Maurizio Sarri admitted that Chelsea are still levels below Liverpool but Ranieri believes that Sarri’s side are good enough to fight for the Premier League title.
“Sarri has a good squad. I saw Sarri’s training in Chelsea and I can say that there is a good feeling between the players and their manager. They follow him. He will fight until the end of the season to win the Premier League title”, Ranieri said.
Chelsea are currently third on the Premier League table behind Manchester City and Liverpool as the Reds lead the pack with a 2 point advantage.
