'Chelsea are real title contenders' - Blues will only get stronger under Lampard, says Sinclair


Frank Lampard Chelsea

Chelsea are real title contenders this season, according to Frank Sinclair, who says the Blues will only get stronger under Frank Lampard.

Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and EdouardMendy were all drafted in over the summerto help bolster Chelsea's chances of becoming an elite force once again, with Liverpool and Manchester City setting high standardsat the top of the tablein recent years.

Lampard's new-look squad is already beginning to gel together nicely, and the Blues are only four points adrift ofthe Premier League summit after seven fixtures, with a home meeting against struggling Sheffield United up next on Saturday.

Chelsea will head into that clash fresh from a 3-0 Champions League win over Rennes in midweek which saw them move top of Group E and extend their run of consecutive clean sheets across all competitions to five.

Sinclair is confident his old club are heading in the right direction, and sees an opportunityfor them to recapture the Premier League crown with reigning champions Liverpool currently being forced to cope without long-term injury absentee Virgil van Dijk.

"Initially when Frank Lampard brought in a few new faces I was really excited, but then you have the realisation that it's going to take time for things to work out - especially in an attacking sense," the ex-Blues defender told Ladbrokes.

"You need to give them time to settle into the team.

"It's pretty evident in recent results that they have done that and I can only see Chelsea kicking on and getting stronger throughout the season and I think they can be real contenders for the title because for me, there's no outstanding side.

"Obviously Liverpool are the main team you've got to try and overtake to win the title but with them losing Virgil van Dijk I think it opens things up for a few sides to be involved in the title race.

"I think Chelsea will be in and around it; they'll only get stronger throughout the season and for me they've got arguably the best attacking lines in the country - along with Liverpool.
