Four reasons why Chelsea are the top favourites for the Premier League title

Four reasons why Chelsea are the top favourites for the Premier League title

After Antonio Conte, Chelsea came into the 2018/2019 season with another Italian, Maurizio Sarri. The former Napoli coach's methods are already with Chelsea amassing 17 points from a possible 21 after 7 games.

The Blues are also in the Europa League and they have taken the maximum 6 points after two group stage games. It does not look like they are stopping anytime soon.

YEN.com.gh makes the case that with everything that is in place right now, Chelsea look like they going to with the Premier League this season.

1. Eden Hazard

There is very little opposition to the point that Eden Hazard is currently the best player in the English game. One can forgive him his flaws including not scoring enough goals but the Belgian is simply a sensational talent.

The future does not always look likt the present but if things should continue as they have started, Hazard might finally "carry" Chelsea to the title.

2. Chelsea can actually defend

The easiest and perhaps most overestimated argument against attacking teams is that they are most likely to concede goals.

But things seem different with Sarri's brand of attacking football. The Italian insists on his team having the ball and making opponents chase the game.

So far, this is working. Chelsea are not letting in cheap goals.

3. Squad depth

Perhaps, one may say that Manchester City's array of talent offers them more than Chelsea's.

But the other side of the argument is Chelsea have perhaps never had this depth since, maybe Jose Mourinho's most recent management of the London side between 2014 and 2016.

Now, they have a chance to prove what their depth means.

4. Their biggest competitors don't seem like they will show up

Manchester United is currently in a crisis. Liverpool fail at the most important times and Manchester City are more eager for the Champions League title.

With a ll due respect, the least said about Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal, the better.

Chelsea's, and indeed Sarri's focus, is primed to make the Blues champions again.
