The Premier League season 2021/2022 has been rolled out for five weeks. So far, the competition to win the Premier League this season is fierce.
There are three teams that collect the same points at the top of the standings. They are Chelsea , Manchester United and Liverpool who both collected 13 points from five matches.
Shearer judged that of all the contestants, Chelsea had the most chance of winning.
“The race to win the Premier League this season has only just begun, but I think Chelsea will be very much stopped from being champions,” Shearer told BBC Sports , Tuesday (21/9/2021).
According to Shearer, one of the reasons for Chelsea to become a strong candidate for the Premier League title this season is because of their stable performance since being handled by Thomas Tuchel.
“Thomas Tuchel’s team looks very impressive at the moment. But they have been playing like this since Tuchel became manager in January,” said Shearer.
On Sunday they won 3-0 brilliantly at home to Tottenham and that shows how good they have been this season,” added the Newcastle United legend.
Shearer assesses the current Chelsea squad so mighty. Tuchel has a lot of players who can make a difference off the bench.
“They have top players in all positions, and they are very strong.
