Returning Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will be the reason Chelsea win the title according to former Newcastle player Alan Shearer.
Newcastle legend Shearer believes Mourinho's Premier League experience will give him the winning edge over rivals.
Shearer told BBC Sport: "He knows what the Premier League is all about, he knows how to win it, he knows what it takes and that is why I would go for Chelsea right
The Portuguese manager led Chelsea to consecutive Premier League titles from 2004-2006 and Shearer believes Mourinho has the managerial ability to get the best out of his players, which has been proven at every team he's managed.
Shearer carried on to say: "I like the way he operates, he is great for the media and his record speaks for itself, albeit last season at Madrid wasn't his best.
"But when you have got a record like his you can forgive him an off season. When you talk to players who have been managed by him he has got a wow factor about him.
"He gets the best out of them. Players don't seem to have a problem with being rotated, he seems to have a knack of looking after his players, he puts himself in the firing line and protects his players. They like that, respect that and respond to that."
Shearer believes the final few weeks of the transfer window, will have a bearing on the title race with prospective moves for Tottenham's Gareth Bale and Manchester
United's Wayne Rooney likely to have an impact on the destiny of the
Premier League trophy this season.
"I would say there are four or five big transfers waiting to happen," said Shearer. "I genuinely believe that once one happens, three or four will happen. While I can go for Chelsea now, we would yet see one big marquee signing that could change things."
Shearer believes Chelsea's main challengers this Premier League season will be Manchester United and Manchester City who both have new managers in charge of each respective club but Shearer believes the experience will see Mourinho capture the Premier League title this season.
