Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City Warned Of The Low-key Potential Title Contender

Since becoming Blues boss last month, Graham Potter has injected some fresh energy into Chelsea. The Blues remain unbeaten under Potter, maintaining that record on Wednesday night with a 0-0 draw at Brentford.

Prior to the stalemate in west London, the 47-year-old had won every Premier League game he had taken charge of at Chelsea – beating Crystal Palace, Wolves and Aston Villa. A draw at Brentford may not leap off the page compared to other results Chelsea have had this season, but Blues legend Gianfranco Zola believes it was a point gained for his former club

“Considering that this Brentford team really is a tough client, I consider this was a good point for Chelsea,” he told Amazon Prime.

Chelsea currently sit fourth in the Premier League, behind Tottenham, Manchester City and Arsenal. Many believe that City will end up proving too strong in the title race, although some fancy Arsenal to put up a fight.

The Blues aren’t being tipped by many to challenge for the title this season under Potter, but Zola believes they can’t be ruled out. The Italian says Chelsea have a squad that can compete on multiple fronts this year.

“It’s still possible,” said Zola when asked if the Blues can win the title. “Chelsea is a very good team and has a big squad, and they can be competitive in the Champions League and even in the Premier League.
