Chelsea not the favourites for the Premier League this year.
The addition of Romel Lukaku in the summer has led Chelsea to become the favourites to win the title by many pundits but Paul Scholes thinks otherwise.
The Blues are currently at the top of the table having won five of their first seven matches in the league.
‘I think Chelsea have got the manager to challenge. I’m just not sure, not convinced there’s enough goals in the team,’ Scholes said on Sky Sports’ Overlap show.
‘I think Romelu Lukaku will score goals but are there enough people around him to score goals. I’m not sure Timo Werner will. When he plays for Germany he scores every game, for Chelsea he misses a lot of chances.
‘I also don’t think Chelsea are great defensively. [Antonio] Rudiger has been really good but other than that, Thiago Silva is 36, he’s not going to play every game.
‘[Andreas] Christensen is a young player. In the middle of your pitch Chelsea are alright. But I’m not sure Chelsea will score enough goals and defensively be good enough.’
