The Express have managed to get Chelsea fans looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that the Blues have got one player who is up for a title fight at least.
Given Chelsea players have not looked like they have the guts or want to fight to keep the title in west London this season, we think the words coming from backup keeper Asmir Begovic are welcome ones indeed – and something that could well boost fans as they go into the international break.
Chelsea are currently eight points behind Manchester City and have plenty of work to do if they want to do as well as last season, but Begovic does not see that as an issue.
He claimed: ‘We need to improve, we know that. But we definitely will – we’ve got the quality and character to really push on and challenge for the title.’
Chelsea fans. Is Begovic right? Is your team good enough to challenge for the title this season after the start you have made? Can you make up eight points or is that too much? Let us know your thoughts below.
