Jamie Carragher: Why I want to see Chelsea caught in the title race

Jamie Carragher says he would love nothing more than to see a thrilling conclusion to the Premier League title race

Jamie Carragher has admitted that he would love nothing more than Chelsea to be caught in the title race to provide thrilling conclusion to the Premier League season.

The Blues currently look unstoppable in the Premier League and lead the way at the top of the table by six points.

Indeed, Antonio Conte’s men have won their last 11 games in the top flight to leave them as the firm favourites to lift the trophy in May.

Liverpool currently occupy second place and are six points behind the Blues heading into the hectic festive period in the Premier League.

And Liverpool legend Carragher admits that he would be thrilled to see a number of teams catch up with Chelsea as the title race approaches its conclusion next year.

Writing in his column for The Daily Mail, Carragher said: “Chelsea look unstoppable as we head into the festive season and they are grinding out those crucial 1-0 wins that define champions.

“But there is a long way to go, and with the quality of managers we have in England and the attacking players, it is not impossible that they will be reeled in.

“I’d love nothing more than to see three or four teams heading into May, neck and neck, all with a chance of becoming champions.

“I don’t think I would be alone in hoping that wish comes true. Merry Christmas to you all.”
