Chelsea already champions, says QPR chief

QPR boss Harry Redknapp believes that Chelsea are as good as Premier League champions already.

The Blues currently top the table by four points after 11 games, Southampton are second, and are yet to be beaten – a record no other side can match.

Although the Saints are closest to them in terms of points, Manchester City are widely seen as their most realistic competitors, but Manuel Pellegrini’s outfit have 21 points to Chelsea’s 29, while other challengers such as Liverpool and Arsenal are even further back.

Redknapp’s side are one of nine beaten by Jose Mourinho’s Londoners this season, and the Super Hoops gaffer believes that their name is as good as on the trophy already:

“They haven’t got a weakness,” he told talkSPORT. “They are physically strong, they have got great ability, and they have got winners in the team like John Terry.

“They are a complete team and they are nailed on [to win the title],

“You can only see Man City chasing them but they are having a dodgy spell and I can’t see Chelsea slipping up.”

Chelsea beat Liverpool last time out and are set to face West Brom when Premier League action returns this weekend.
