“If Manchester City go far in the Champions League, I think Chelsea will win the title”
Matt Le Tissier on the Premier League title race
All the Premier League’s big boys are expected to splash the cash next month to mount a title charge.
And Southampton legend Le Tissier reckons Antonio Conte’s men will win the title, especially with City focusing on the Champions League.
“I backed Chelsea at the start of the season, purely for the fact they’ve got no European football to contend with,” Le Tissier told Sky Sports.
“If Manchester City go far in the Champions League, I think Chelsea will win the title.
“If City were to go out in the first knockout stages, I think they’d have a better chance of winning the Premier League.”
