Five stats that prove Chelsea are genuine title contenders
Talk regarding this season’s Premier League title race seems to be focused on Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool who, after all winning during the weekend just gone, sit top the division – level on 23 points after 10 games.
The trio are all playing excellent football and look like they’ll be in the mix for the big prize by the time May comes around, but located just below them, only one point adrift, are Chelsea, who it seems very few fans and pundits are really talking up.
