At this moment in time, it is hard to look past Chelsea’s chances of winning the Premier League for the first time since 2017 when Antonio Conte was manager, hence why they are priced at 11/4 to do so.
Thomas Tuchel has formed the Stamford Bridge club’s side into a cohesive well-oiled machine that prides itself on defensive discipline, as well as ball retention and chance creation. The German manager took over from Frank Lampard midway through last season and managed to turn what looked like a disorganised group of individuals into the Champions of Europe by beating the likes of Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid and Manchester City on their way to winning the Champions League in Porto.
With the addition of Romelu Lukaku who inspired Inter Milan to their first Serie A title since 2010 to their ranks, as well as the expected signing of Jules Kounde of Sevilla also in the pipeline, this will ultimately see the Blues look a lot stronger in attack, as the Belgian has a proven track record of scoring in the Premier League, whilst Timo Werner struggled in his debut campaign at Stamford Bridge. Kounde was part of the Sevilla side that won the Europa League with Sevilla and could be part of a strong Chelsea defence lead by Thiago Silva, as the Frenchman is quick across the ground and played a major role in his current side’s impressive defensive record that saw them conceded just 33 times.
Lukaku has already started brightly having scored against Arsenal on his debut which was his 114th Premier League goal having played for the likes of Chelsea, West Brom, Everton and Manchester United.
