Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has tipped Chelsea to pip Manchester City to the Premier League title next season.
Chelsea has looked a different team under manager Thomas Tuchel with the team making it to the Champions League finals where they will be up against City.
Ferdinand believes Timo Werner will shine brightly next season and will boost Chelsea to Premier League glory ahead of Manchester City, Liverpool, and Man United.
“Have you seen Chelsea’s stats by the way? Chelsea is my team to win the league next year. Since Tuchel has come in, they are top of almost every category: goals conceded, chances created. What he’s done going in there, you can do nothing but give him applause man. It’s unbelievable.
“Werner will bang. Werner will bang next year. It’s his first year in the country. People are forgetting he’s settling in – during a pandemic by the way. This isn’t the easiest settling-in period,” he said in a video on his YouTube channel.
Despite people having thought that Werner has failed at Chelsea, the German international has managed a respectable 12 goals and 13 assists in his debut season (47 games thus far) and seems to be forming a perfect partnership with Kai Haverts who also struggled under Frank Lampard earlier in the season.
