Fernando Torres who finished third in 2008 Ballon d’ Or has spoken about the competition for the Premier League champions in 2020/2021.
This summer, Chelsea introduced the world’s top players. The arrival of these top players is certainly not cheap. The Blues spent about 200 million pounds. Chelsea spent a lot of money to bring in Hakeem Ziech of Ajax, Timo Warner of RB Leipzig, Ben Chilwell of Leicester City, and Kay of Bayer Leverkusen Havitz.
At the same time, there are other players brought by the London team. Frank Langard’s team recruited Malang Sarr and Thiago Silva for free. It is believed that this allows the Blues to compete for the Premier League title in the 2020/2021 season. Fernando Torres, a former Liverpool player who also played for Chelsea, said the same thing. According to him, the Blues have extraordinary player qualities this season. However, the Reds are still at the core of the championship.
“I think they (Chelsea) are building a great team not only for this season but also for the future. They are building a very interesting team, but they are still very young. You can see that Frank has the ability to deal with a youth team like he had a great performance last season,” Torres told talkSPORT.
“They will be close to the championship battle, but I don’t know if they can compete with Liverpool and Manchester City. I hope they can chase the Premier League title until the end. But it feels like Liverpool will still be stronger than Manchester City or Chelsea.” The former Liverpool and Chelsea forward added.
At the same time, Chelsea defeated Brighton 3-1 at the Amex Stadium on September 15, 2020, starting the 2020/2021 Premier League. Chelsea itself does not have to wait long to face Liverpool. Frank Lampard’s lads will face the defending champion in the next game of the 2020/2021 Premier League.
