Danny Murphy delivers verdict on Chelsea’s title hopes

Danny Murphy says Chelsea look like real contenders for the Premier League title this season

Danny Murphy is convinced that Chelsea will be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title this season.

The Blues have been in fine form in recent weeks and notched up their seventh straight victory in the top flight on Saturday night when they came from a goal down to beat Tottenham 2-1 at Stamford Bridge.

Antonio Conte appears to be getting the best out of his Blues players following his appointment as the club’s new manager over the summer.

The west London side are currently leading the way at the top of the Premier League table and have earned plenty of praise for their strong displays in recent weeks.

And former Liverpool midfielder Murphy has been extremely impressed by what he has seen from the Blues in recent weeks.

Speaking on Match of the Day, Murphy said: “It was another fantastic performance [against Spurs] from a team that look like they’re real contenders.”
