Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has confessed that Liverpool will win the League this season, ahead of his side Chelsea.
Chelsea stunned their host on Wednesday in the Carabao Cup clash between both sides, edging past Jurgen Klopp’s Red 2-1 to one to advance into the fourth round of the competition.
However, the Blues manager in a statement revealed that the Reds can win the Premier League this season.
Liverpool last won the Premier League in 1990 and came closest to cinching the trophy last season, but finished fourth.
Sarri is confident they can lift the trophy just as easy as Manchester City walked to claim it last season.
“Yes, it’s very strange, but what’s important is that now they are ready.
“They’re a top-level team. They have worked with the same coach for four seasons; they are ready now to win the Premier League
Liverpool 1-2 Chelsea” Said Sarri.
Meanwhile Chelsea welcome Liverpool for their Premier League side.
A victory for Chelsea will push them ahead of the Reds in the Premier League log.
Chelsea talisman Eden Hazard has also been praised by the Italian manager. However, Sarri like Sky’s Danny Higginbotham is not convinced yet, that the player has reach the apogee of his career.
Sarri said Hazard has yet to offer 100 percent and believes more training can help him reach that level.
