  • Chelsea have continued to drop points in recent times in the Premier League and they are no longer on top of the standings
  • Former Liverpool star Dietmar Hamann has stated that Thomas Tuchel’s side cannot maintain top form for the full stretch of a season
  • According to the ex-Bayern Munich star, one of Manchester City or Liverpool will likely win the EPL this season

Former Bayern Munich star Dietmar Hamann has disclosed he does not see Chelsea winning this season’s Premier League title ahead of the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City, Daily Post reports.

Thomas Tuchel’s men are chasing the prestigious title, but have suffered injury blows to some of their key players which could affect their title quest.

And as a result, the teams form has dropped as they also failed to earn maximum points against Burnley, Manchester United and West Ham.

And according to former Liverpool star Hamann, the Blues can’t match their rivals when it comes to consistency for a whole season.

Hamann told The Metro via Mirror:

"It’s still a three-horse race right now, but I don’t think Chelsea have what it takes to win the Premier League over Liverpool and Manchester City,".
"I know they won the Champions League, but it’s a different competition.
"I just think City and Liverpool are one if not two steps ahead of Chelsea and this is why I think they will both have a healthy gap over Chelsea come the end of the season."

Tuchel blasts Chelsea stars following draw with Zenith

Meanwhile, Thomas Tuchel recently launched a scathing, yet rare attack on his Chelsea players after an entertaining 3-3 draw against Zenit St Petersburg in the Champions League.

The Blues rounded off their group campaign on Wednesday, December 8, finishing second behind Juventus.

Things would have been very different if the London club had not conceded a last-minute equaliser.

Timo Werner opened the scoring for Chelsea in the second minute, but Zenit did well to turn the game on its head with two goals in quick sucession from Claudinho and Sardar Azmoun before the late drama as they shared the spoils.

Trent Alexander-Arnold named PL Player of the Month for November

Meanwhile, earlier reported that England star Trent Alexander-Arnold has edged his club teammate Mohamed Salah to win Premier League’s Player of the Month award for November.

The Liverpool star found the back of the net once and made six assists in the five matches he played last month to win the prize for the fifth time in his career.

According to the Anfield outfit, Alexander-Arnold expressed delight to have received enormous votes which saw him scoop the award yet again.
