Manchester United, Liverpool and Man City are the only three clubs looking likely to compete with Chelsea for the Premier League. Manchester United reached up to 13points after defeating David Moyes' West Ham on Sunday. It wasn't an easy one for the visitors but the Red Devils managed to secure an important three points by scoring a late winning goal towards stoppage time. David De Gea also managed to save a penalty, to ensure that United are still well in the race for the title.
￼Liverpool in the other hand are also level on points with Manchester United and Chelsea (13points). The Mersyside reds defeated Patrick Viera's Crystal palace 3-0 at Anfield. Liverpool were topping the league table on Saturday, but Chelsea have managed to displace them at the top despite having the same goals and pionts as Liverpool. Man City are also another title contenders. City are currently occupying the 5th position In the league table after sharing points with Southampton. Though Guardiola has lost 1 game and has also drawn 1 game, we can't just write them of the title race because it's just 3points differentiating them from Chelsea, Man United and Liverpool.
However, despite the three clubs being close level on points, it will be very hard to stop Chelsea who is growing stronger day by day. And here are my reasons.
Chelsea team has turned out to becoming something else. Starting from the midfield to the back-three have been very exceptional this season. Chelsea have turned to a stingy team in terms of allowing an opponent to score a goal. They have only conceeded once this season and it was against Liverpool. They have players that are capable of subduing pressure like we saw on Sunday against Tottenham. These quality is one Chelsea has more than Man United, Man City and Liverpool.
2. Squad Depth
Chelsea squad depth is nothing compared to that of any other team in EPL. Chelsea sold most of their Players last summer and even loaned some players, but still Thomas Tuchel has a lot options to pick from when injury comes up. Man City also has squad depth but it is nothing compared to Chelsea, especially at Chelsea's midfield where they have players like Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic, Saul, Barkley and Loftus-cheek.
3. Thomas Tuchel
Man United has Ronaldo, Liverpool has Mo Salah, Man City has Decided Byune, while Chelsea also has Lukaku. But there's another thing that Chelsea has that these 3 clubs I mentioned above lack, which is a very calculating and we'll talented coach like Thomas Tuchel. Tuchel arrived at Stamford Bridge and transformed Chelsea to European best. The German tactician has faced Gaurdiola three times and conquered, he has faced Kloop twice and he survived. Solskjaer haven't won Tuchel before and it shows these Coaches are no match for Thomas Tuchel.
For Man United, Liverpool and Man City to be able to stop Chelsea from winning the title, they are meant to have these three qualities, so that they can match Chelsea
