Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher, has warned Manchester City and Liverpool not to, ‘write off’ Chelsea for the Premier League title this season.

According to Carragher, Maurizio Sarri’s side are strong enough to challenge City and the Reds for the English topflight league prize this campaign.

Chelsea finished outside of the top four under former manager, Antonio Conte last season but look stronger under new manager, Sarri.

The Blues are yet to lose in the Premier League so far, winning five of their seven fixtures to currently occupy the third position on the EPL log.

Carragher, however, said that City and Liverpool should not underrate Chelsea, even though they are the favourites for the title this season.

“I wouldn’t write off Chelsea,” Carragher told Sky Sports.

“They have a great habit of winning trophies, certainly early in a new manager’s reign.

“Spurs as well, after a bit of a wobble, are only four points off the top.

“But I think it will be difficult for Spurs to challenge for the title with their squad depth and how many players went to the World Cup but I wouldn’t write off Chelsea with Eden Hazard in the form he’s in.

“But Klopp has been there a lot longer than Sarri and Pep’s into his third season also and both sides are looking the real deal at this early stage you would say it would be between these two, with City being big favorites.”
Carragher added, “I don’t think anyone would deny that considering what they did last season.

“I think they are the best team but that doesn’t mean Liverpool can’t find a way of overcoming them in a one-off game and taking the title if City went on a huge run in the Champions League, Carabao Cup and FA Cup.

“Injuries too are the things where you need a little bit of luck to go your way. I think these are the front two with Chelsea very close behind in the early stages.”
