After producing a series of outstanding performances to claim the Champions league title in Lisbon a few months ago, Chelsea have started the new premier league season in an electrifying form, winning four matches from five premier league showdowns this season without conceding any goal from open play. In fact, the only match Chelsea has failed to register a victory was the stalemate at Anfield in August, where Reece James red card reduced Chelsea to ten man.

That said, The recent thumping of Tottenham last Sunday has started raising series of debates among pundits and football fans about Chelsea title credentials. While some are of the view that it still too early to make any pronouncement about the premier league title race, others have argued that Chelsea have the material and psychological edge over every other title hopefuls, with an explanation that Chelsea, amongst other EPL giants, is the only team that can vouch of two 'first class' players in virtually every position on the pitch. Besides, The presence of Thomas Tuchel as their coach happened to be an important 'X-factor' that only few of their contenders could vouch of.
