Manchester United legend, Gary Neville, has predicted the position Chelsea will finish this season in the English Premier League, EPL.
Chelsea began their 2021/22 Premier League campaign with a 3-0 victory against Crystal Palace over the weekend.
Thomas Tuchel’s men finished fourth on the Premier League table last season behind Liverpool, Man United and Manchester City.
But Neville expects Chelsea to improve on the fourth position they finished last season, insisting that the signing of Romelu Lukaku will make the Blues one of the favourites to win the Premier League this season.
“They [Chelsea] are going to be serious this season. They were last season, but they are going to be really serious in terms of the Premier League,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“Romelu Lukaku makes them very, very dangerous. I said last week that Pep Guardiola wouldn’t sign Lukaku, City wouldn’t have been in for him because he wouldn’t suit the manager.
“But for Chelsea, he will score a ton of goals, he is perfect for that club. I know he has been there before, but this time he comes back with maturity, confidence, and hundreds of goals under his belt.
“I talk about gold signings where I have no doubt they will be a success. He will do the 25-30 goals. I have got no doubts over him.
“He will go into that Chelsea team and make them real challenges for the Premier League title. He is a game-changer for them in terms of pushing Man City, Man United and Liverpool for the title.”
