Chelsea are fielding a very strong attack going into the new season and could give title challengers a run for their money.
At least Tony Cascarino seems to think so. The former Blues striker has tipped Christian Pulisic, along with new recruits Timo Werner and Kai Havertz, to make serious waves in the Premier League this season.
Speaking to The Times, Cascarino has expressed his excitement over watching Frank Lampard’s men in action this term. He has lauded the three attackers and believes they are now the league’s most dangerous-looking front three.
Could Chelsea win the Premier League this season?
“Frank Lampard’s team now have the most exciting front three in the Premier League and, whisper it, they have what it takes to be more prolific than Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino at Liverpool,” the 58-year-old said (The Times, via Metro).
Both Salah and Mane had exceptional campaigns yet again for Liverpool last time around. The duo scored a combined 37 goals in the Premier League, falling narrowly short of their 44-goal total from the previous season which saw them share the Golden Boot with Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (via Transfermarkt).
It’s certainly a bold claim to tip two newcomers for a higher haul, but with the influence of Pulisic, they could well bag a hatful of goals. The US international netted nine times in the league last season and could be Chelsea’s driving force this term.
It’s a tall order for Lampard to bridge the gap on Liverpool and Manchester City already, but with his new personnel, they could really push the opposition to the limit.
