Sarri still doesn’t see Chelsea and Tottenham’s title chances
Chelsea head coach said that his team had no chance of winning the Premier League that season. The Italian is also confident that Tottenham, who are occupying second place, also have no chance of winning.
The Blues finished the first half of the Premier League season in fourth place, 11 points behind the leaders — Liverpool. Sarri no longer hopes to intervene in the fight for the title and believes that only Manchester City can deprive the Reds of the title.
The Italian coach said that even at the very beginning of the season he was sure that only two teams would fight for the championship that season – City and Liverpool. His opinion on this matter hasn’t changed, despite the fact that City already dropped to 3rd place.
And although there is a small distance between the clubs now, Sarri is confident that Pep Guardiola’s team will manage to narrow this gap.
