Former Chelsea assistant manager Ray Wilkins believes the Blues will be happy to go under the radar this term with regards to winning the league.

All the title talk so far this season has been around Manchester United and Manchester City, with the pair looking imperious at the top of the table after just three games.

However, Wilkins will remember well the Blues' fantastic start to the campaign last season, and is well aware that the race for the Barclays Premier League title is a marathon rather than a sprint.

“I’m sure the lads at Chelsea will be quite happy that no-one is talking about them," he told talkSPORT.

“In the last couple of years everyone has been talking about them, saying it will be Chelsea's title.

“Knowing most of the guys in the changing room, they’re very determined and they’re all winners. It's going to be extremely interesting how this plans out.”

The SkySports pundit is enthused by the current campaign in the top flight, and believes all the ingredients are in place for the best English league season for 20 years.


Written off by many, the former England international believes Arsenal could have a say in the title race, potentially causing upsets against the top teams, whilst Spurs have also got the nod as an improving force after last season's fifth place finish.

“We’re only a couple of games in but there are some really strong teams in there this year," he continued.

“Arsenal will improve, there’s no question about that and they will upset people. I just think it's fantastic.

“Tottenham will only get better. I think we’re probably in for the best ever Premier League season since its conception.”
