“He won’t thank me for saying this” – What Joe Cole said about Frank Lampard’s Chelsea
After a bright start to the 2020/21 season, the Blues now sit eighth in the Premier League after a 2-0 loss to Leicester on Tuesday evening.
Chelsea have lost six of our 19 league games this season and are now only two points clear of bitter rivals Arsenal.
In the start of December, Chelsea legend Joe Cole tipped the Blues to win everything this season but that forecast is beginning to look worse with every passing week.
“Frank won’t thank me for saying this, but they can win everything,” Cole told The Mirror.
“If you’re Arsenal, you can’t win the league. Nor Leicester. Chelsea are in the mix of three or four teams who can win the Premier League and five or six who can win the Champions League.
“It’s a better team than when they won the Champions League in 2012. Frank’s putting together a better team and that’s a big credit to him.
“They’re looking like a team, they’ve got the makings of a great team. I can see the winner of the Premier League coming from Chelsea, Spurs or Liverpool.
“Chelsea have got a massive chance. They’ll be there or thereabouts. I can’t say for sure they will do it but, in my opinion, there’s as good as the other two.
“It’ll be one of those three.”
Leicester were ruled out of the Premier League race but they are now top of the league after beating Chelsea 2-0 on Tuesday night.
