EPL: Jamie Carragher names teams that can challenge for title this season

Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher, believes Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur can compete with Manchester City and Liverpool for the Premier League title this season.

Chelsea have endured a tricky summer as the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner, Andreas Christensen, and Antonio Rudiger have left the club.

The Blues added Marc Cucurella, Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly to their squad.

And Carragher believes Chelsea could make some more signings before the end of the transfer window in September, which could give them the firepower to compete for the Premier League title.

Tottenham, on the other hand, have backed manager Antonio Conte financially in the summer transfer window.

Spurs have added Clement Lenglet, Richarlison, Fraser Froster, Yves Bissouma, Djed Spence, and Ivan Perisic to their squad.

And Carragher believes Tottenham have the ability to challenge for the title thanks to their squad and the presence of Conte.

“A lot of people may be down on Chelsea this season, but I think a couple of players could still come into Stamford Bridge before the window closes. They could be in a completely different position come the end of August,” Carragher told Sky Sports.

The former defender added: “Spurs could compete with Conte, especially looking at the results they got away at Liverpool and Manchester City last season. The Italian is a coach who can quite rightly go up against Klopp and Guardiola and not feel in any way inferior due to the success he’s had abroad and here in the Premier League as well.”
