Former Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez believes the Blues, as well as Premier League champions Man City and Champions League finalists Liverpool will remain in the race for the title until the last match-day of 2018/19 campaign.
The Spaniard, speaking at a press conference, said: “At the moment maybe there are three teams that you could say that they are a little bit ahead of the others. Fore me are Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City because of the level, the performances last year and the money they spent. If you have to pick three, I will pick these. They have enough quality to do well.”
Chelsea will take on Newcastle United at St.James’ Park on Sunday (kick-off 4PM BST ) in their third game of Premier League campaign. The Blues have been enjoying a great start to the season so far after 0-3 win over Huddersfield Town and 3-2 derby victory against Arsenal.
