Shaun Wright - Phillips Tips Chelsea To Pip Manchester City To Title

Former Manchester City player Shaun Wright tips Chelsea to win the league this season ahead of Manchester City,United and Liverpool. Read what he said now.

Shaun Wright-Phillips has tipped Chelsea to get
the better of Manchester City in the Premier
League title race.
It’s been a few seasons since Chelsea have truly been in the
hunt for the Premier League title. The Blues last won the
domestic honour back in 2017 under the guidance of Antonio
Conte. However, since their Champions League triumph and a
successful transfer window, they are a favourite again.
Under previous manager Frank Lampard, Chelsea were good
enough to finish fourth in the league. In contrast, the
subsequent arrival of Thomas Tuchel has revitalised the squad
to challenge for all honours this season. The German tactician
guided the club to the Champions League crown with a final
victory over Manchester City last term.
If there was any doubt, Tuchel has helped Chelsea start the
season unbeaten as they sit joint-top of the table alongside
Liverpool. Their performances so far have been convincing
enough on all fronts. The Blues have been prolific in the final
third while conceding a solitary goal from the penalty spot.
Manchester City, Liverpool and Manchester United are all
considered Chelsea’s rivals for the Premier League. Pep
Guardiola’s side, in particular, are considered hot favourites for
the domestic honour after winning it last season. However,
many believe it’s the west Londoners who look like the real
deal this term.

Former Manchester City and Chelsea winger Shaun Wright-
Phillips has tipped the London side to take the title away from
Manchester. He also gave his reasoning for this prediction. As
quoted by The Sun , Wright-Phillips said, “Right this second, I
think Chelsea would pip City to the title.
“The fact that they don’t have to play well and still come away
with 3-0 wins is unbelievable, and Tuchel has even said they
haven’t played well yet. He still wants more from his team and
wants them to play his way still, but they’re coming away with
these wins still. When Frank Lampard was in charge, the attack
looked really fluent, but they were conceding too many goals.
“Tuchel came in and assured that defence up; at first, it looked
like the defence and midfield were two separate teams. As
soon as it started coming together, you can see it runs like a
well-oiled machine.”
With all major teams strengthening their squad, this season
promises a close title race, and there are already four major
teams tipped to challenge it. However, with their formidable
squad, Chelsea might run away with the lead on top if they
continue their consistent displays.
