“It will be a super tough race,” Thomas Tuchel said when asked about how competitive the Premier League title race will be next season.
“Manchester United will be in the race and Tottenham will be in the race with Antonio Conte, for sure.
“We want to stay in the race and Liverpool and Man City do everything to make their squads bigger and they set the standard so high. This is the challenge in which we compete.”
We can safely say that closing the gap to Man City and Liverpool will be a challenge for Chelsea, but for Tottenham and Man United, it might be even harder.
The next few weeks will be crucial for Chelsea’s prospects to get involved in the title race. After the takeover is complete, the Blues will work hard to get the transfer targets they want – probably, starting with Jules Kounde.
