Joe Cole has tipped Frank Lampard to go for the Premier League title this season.
The former Chelsea player and current BT Sport pundit has tipped his former club and country team-mate and current Chelsea manager to try and win the Premier League this season itself.
Chelsea have not made the most impressive of start but their new look team studded with stars are coming together at the Bridge and Cole expects Chelsea to only take off from here.
“It was an exceptional performance and it’s been a steady improvement,” Cole said on BT Sport after Chelsea thrashed Burnley 3-0 at Turf Moor.
“Now it looks like Chelsea can make a run of it. It’s been a long time since Chelsea have looked as comfortable defending. Mendy didn’t have a shot to save.
“It’s good times for the club at the moment and it’s just about consistency. You look at the fixture list and there’s winnable games to come.
“By Christmas time Chelsea could be right up there. It’s game on.
“I think there are three or four clubs who can go for the title and Chelsea are certainly one of them.”
