Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has named the five teams he feels will fight for the Premier League title next season.
The Blues finished third in the 2021/2022 campaign, behind Manchester City and Liverpool.
Tuchel believes Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham could all challenge but neglected to include Arsenal, who finished ahead of United in fifth.
He said: “It will be a super tough race. Manchester United will be in the race, Tottenham will be in the race with Antonio Conte for sure, and we want to stay in the race.
“And Liverpool and Man City will do everything to even make their squads bigger.
“They set the standard so, so high and it will take the same to be competitive next season. While like everybody else tries to close the gap to us…the two top teams are what they are, a benchmark of consistency.
“That’s the situation and from there on we do our very best to be competitive because this is what we want to be.”
