Although Chelsea signed a couple of stars during the summer, Melchiot believes it is not enough.
claimed that he believesChelsea
is a title contender this year.
however said that the result against Everton proved otherwise. Expectations are high from Chelsea as they spent a lot of money during the summer transfer window and signed some high-quality players.
Melchiot believes that Chelsea has a project and this season is part of the process. The former Blues defender told Stadium Astro when asked if Lampard’s side are favourites this season:
“I don’t think so. I would love to say it. But if you look atLiverpool
, they have the ingredients to win it again. I see them being up there to win it again, along with Manchester City.
“Do Chelsea want to be up there? Of course, but these [a 1-0 defeat at Everton] are the kind of games they have to win if they are going to compete.
“Do I expect them to be in top four? Yes, that’s normal – especially with the investment they have made and bringing so many talented players into the squad. But the important part is to take a bit of pressure off your team by saying others are great, so that’s clever from Klopp.”
