Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes, has said Chelsea will not win the Premier League title, because they don’t have enough goals in the team.
The Blues are the current European champions, after they beat Manchester City in the Champions League final in May.
Many have tipped Thomas Tuchel’s men to also give City a run for their money this campaign domestically.
Chelsea currently top the table, having won five of their first seven matches of the season.
But Scholes believes they will fall short.
“I think Chelsea have got the manager to challenge. I’m just not sure, not convinced there’s enough goals in the team.
“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,” Scholes said on Sky Sports’ Overlap show.
