Why Chelsea cannot beat City and Liverpool to EPL title this season, Rio Ferdinand makes claim

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has laid bare his opinion on why Manchester City and Liverpool are favourites for the Premier league title, after dismissing Chelsea in the race, this is according to reports.

Chelsea like Liverpool have won five of five of their opening Premier League games but they are top of log following their goal difference. Meanwhile, City are two points adrift the Blues after failing to beat Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Manchester City conquered the Premier league last season and while Liverpool chased the side, they got to the final of the Champions league. The Blues are going to feature in the Europa Cup this term, but their impressive start in the League this term leaves them as major title contenders.

Ferdinand differs in that opinion as he has claimed Chelsea are not as good as Liverpool and City.


Chelsea will take on West Ham United in a London Deby Showdown this weekend and they will be hoping to replicate the same form.

The still very much young and we cannot rule out the possibility of winning the league – no hard feelings, Rio Ferdinand just made his opinion bare.
