Premier League 2020-21

Cesc Fabregas  Monaco midfielder has shown that he believes Chelsea are good enough to challenge for the Premier League title this season.

The prior Blues star represented the West London side for five years between 2014 and 2019 and won two league titles with the group. Fabregas said his admiration for the present squad and commended Chelsea’s transport enterprise.

Chelsea was among the busiest sides during the summer, spending in excess of £250 million to strengthen the squad. Manager Frank Lampard is looking to build on the gains he made in his debut season at the club.

However, things began slowly for the Stamford Bridge side this year. Mistakes from previous seasons maintained haunting them which included defensive lapses in the back. The new signings also took some time for going for Chelsea at the beginning of the season.

The arrival of Edouard Mendy from Rennes has helped enhance the boat and Hakim Ziyech’s return to fitness has the Blues functioning like a well-drilled unit. They now sit in 5th place at the table, three points behind table-toppers Leicester City.

Cesc Fabregas has seemingly seen enough to convince him about Chelsea’s title credentials and he voiced this in an interview with the Daily Mail.

“I like this team a lot. They added a lot of quality, speed and creativity, which was missing. They also added leadership in Thiago Silva. They should aim to win the league this season because I believe, with Liverpool and Man City, they have the best squad talent-wise,” said Fabregas.

What Chelsea have to win Premier League this season?

Considering the huge amounts invested from the current market, it is not beyond reason to suggest that Chelsea should ostensibly contest for the league this year. However, the truth is that it goes beyond strengthening the group. The heights attained by Liverpool and Manchester City in the previous two years are so high and the Blues have to maintain their performance levels.

There also have been concerns raised about Frank Lampard’s tactical acumen. Despite their remarkable results lately, the present team is still lacking in requisite experience.

However, the exceptional character of the season indicates that fans could have one of the most competitive campaigns in history. The underwhelming performances of the top teams in the table could leave a vacuum that Chelsea could take advantage of.

The increased rate of muscle injuries due to the congested nature of the campaign could also work in the Blues’ favor. The London side has an adequate squad depth to juxtapose any physical fitness issues they may confront.

Whether all these happen remains to be seen however it can’t be claimed that Chelsea has what it takes to be one of the favorites to win the Premier League title.
