Pep Guardiola insists Chelsea can compete for the Premier League title this season after the Blues secured a 2-0 win over his side.
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has constantly claimed that his team are not ready to be the top side in the league just yet, but goals from N’Golo Kante and David Luiz secured a very impressive win over the current champions.
If you tell me Liverpool can win the title, I would say yes. If you say Tottenham, Arsenal or Chelsea can win the Premier League then I would say yes. Everybody can win the Premier League,” Guardiola said.
“We know that with two defeats in three games players give an extra bit, playing at home against a previous champions.
“They are an exceptional team, Chelsea, and I know Sarri things that he needs more time but I see right now is a team to compete for everything.
“You see Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic, they are players at a high, high level. Pedro has won two Champions League, Hazard one of the best in the world, Willian top class.
“The back four incredible, good keeper, so they are a side to be there. I don’t have doubts.”
