EPL: Ian Wright, Shearer name club to win Premier League title this season

Former Arsenal star, Ian Wright, and Newcastle legend, Alan Shearer, have tipped Chelsea to win this season’s Premier League title.

To them, Chelsea are the favourites to win the 2021/22 Premier League title, ahead of current champions, Manchester City.

Their reason is majorly because of the arrival of Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan.

While Chelsea defeated Crystal Palace 3-0 on Saturday even without Lukaku, Manchester City fell 1-0 to Tottenham on Sunday.

Shearer and Wright pointed out that the signing of Lukaku might have tipped the scale in Chelsea’s favour.

“It will be a lot tighter this season than it was last season,” Shearer told BBC MOTD about the Premier League title race.

“And Lukaku I think will be a game-changer for Chelsea because he’s exactly what they needed a number of times last season, even today [v Crystal Palace].”

Asked to make his title race prediction, Shearer responded: “I’m going to go for Chelsea, [ahead of Manchester City] even if they get [Harry] Kane.”

Wright had a similar idea, adding: “I’m going to go for Chelsea as well, now that they’ve got Rom [Lukaku].”
