Jack Wilshere thinks Chelsea will win the Premier League title this season ahead of his parent club Arsenal.
The England international is on loan for the season at Bournemouth and has been impressing with some accomplished displays for Eddie Howe’s side.
Wilshere, who was part of the Cherries side that lost 3-0 to the Blues on Boxing Day, thinks Chelsea are better than their rivals at the moment and thinks they have what it takes to win the league this season.
“They look like champions at the minute, for me at the moment they’re the best team in the league,” said Wilshere.
“There’s still a long way to go of course, you can’t say they’re definitely going to win the league but at the minute they look like the strongest.
“They’ve found this new formation that works for them. I’ve always thought it’s a tough place to come anyway.
“I’ve been [to Stamford Bridge] a few times with Arsenal and we’ve only won once, but they’re more ruthless, they know what the job in hand is, they go out there and week in week out they change their game planning depending on who they are playing.
“I think that’s the sign of a top team.”
