EPL: David James names club to win Premier League title this season

December 12, 2021

Former England goalkeeper David James has named Chelsea as the club to win the English Premier League title this season.

He believes Chelsea is the ‘team to beat’ ahead of title rivals Liverpool and Manchester City who are currently above the Blues in the league table.

Chelsea won nine of their first 12 league games to move ahead of defending champions Man City and 2020 winners Liverpool but have dropped points at home to Manchester United at the end of last month and suffered a 3-2 defeat to West Ham last week to fall behind their title rivals.

“I’m glad Chelsea won today [against Leeds] because they are the team to beat for me,” ex-goalkeeper James told Stadium Astro.

“I’ve actually tipped them not to be top of the table come Christmas based on the games they’re got coming up. Man City and Liverpool’s fixtures are a lot more comfortable.

“But everyone has struggled to a point. Last weekend there were tight wins [for Liverpool and Man City].

“It’s a tough season but I think Chelsea are the team to beat. When you see Liverpool in this kind of determined form, stringing wins together, of course they are going to run them close.”
