Chelsea could have the Premier League title wrapped up by the middle of January, according to Jason McAteer.

The Blues are four points clear at the top of the Premier League table after winning eight and drawing two of their opening 10 games.

By Christmas everyone will be playing catch-up and we could be done when we get into the middle of January

And former Liverpool midfielder McAteer can’t see Jose Mourinho’s side suffering a defeat in the English top-flight this season.

“You just can’t see Chelsea getting beat, can you? They’re just so solid in all areas,” McAteer told SportsJOE.

“Mourinho threatened to do this, he said last year that it wasn’t his team, he identified the players he wanted to bring in, and it wasn’t hard given the lack of goals.

“Diego Costa has come in, he’s brought Didier Drogba back as cover and it’s just worked.

“It helps that goals are coming from everywhere, you’ve got Cesc Fabregas chipping in and defensively they’ve gone from strength to strength. Mourinho’s shown he’s not afraid to make big calls, he’s brought Thibaut Courtois in for Cech.”

McAteer added: “They just look so formidable that I think by Christmas everyone will be playing catch-up and we could be done when we get into the middle of January.”

Can Chelsea go unbeaten this season?
