Former Chelsea midfielder, Michael Essien has tipped his old club to win the Premier League title next season under Thomas Tuchel.
Chelsea have made it to the Champions League and FA Cup finals this season and have also climbed to third in the table.
They were ninth when Tuchel took over from club legend Frank Lampard in the Stamford Bridge in January.
And Essien, who won the league title twice with Chelsea, believes the west Londoners will be stronger next season and lift the title.
Essien, speaking exclusively to Ladbrokes at its launch of the 5-A-Side Bet on Chelsea v Leicester, said, “I’m going to say Chelsea win the league next season, based on how good they’ve looked since Thomas Tuchel has taken over.
“They’re my first choice for the title, then it’s obviously going to be Man United, Liverpool and Man City who will be right up there with them.
“With the players Thomas Tuchel has got at his disposal, I think he’s got all the tools needed to challenge for the title next season.
“If you look from the goalkeepers to the forwards, they’ve got big names all over the pitch. They’ve got it all.
“I love the fact that they’ve got Thiago Silva at the back, his experience really is vital to that team and he’s such a great name the younger players in the squad can learn from.
“He commands the back line very well, but even without him, they’ve got Antonio Rudiger, Kurt Zouma and Andreas Christensen, so they’re very strong in that area.”
