Adrian Mutu predicts where Chelsea will finish this season

Adrian Mutu is tipping Chelsea to win the Premier League title this season under Antonio Conte

Adrian Mutu is convinced that Antonio Conte will lead Chelsea to the Premier League title this season.

The Blues head into this weekend’s round of fixtures leading the way at the top of the Premier League table after having been the most consistent team in the first half of the season.

Chelsea travel to Leicester City on Saturday looking to return to winning ways after the disappointment of their 2-0 loss to Tottenham last week.

The west London side have been in extremely impressive form under their new boss and had won 13 games in a row in the top flight before they lost to Spurs.

Former Chelsea striker Mutu has been very impressed by what he has seen from Chelsea under their new manager and is tipping them to lift the Premier League trophy in May.

Speaking to The Sun, Mutu said: “Antonio Conte is a great coach, and I think he can win the Premier League with Chelsea,” Mutu told The Sun.

“Mourinho didn’t start very well, and I think Conte, with Chelsea, and Klopp, with Liverpool had a better beginning of the season.

“It’s also Guardiola with a great squad at City. It’s a very hard competition and a difficult but beautiful season with great managers. It’s going to be very difficult.

“I had some good moments at Chelsea.”
