Nigel Winterburn is backing Chelsea to win the Premier League title ahead of Tottenham this season.

Chelsea took another small step towards winning the top-flight trophy on Tuesday night when they eased to a 4-2 win over Southampton at Stamford Bridge.

However, Tottenham kept up the pressure on their London rivals when they sealed a 1-0 win at Crystal Palace to leave them four points behind the Blues with five games left to play.

Chelsea have the chance to move seven points clear once again when the take on Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon.

Tottenham then take on bitter local rivals Arsenal at White Hart Lane later on the same day.

However, former Arsenal man Winterburn is fully expecting to see Chelsea win the Premier League title next month.

Speaking on Sky Sports News HQ, Winterburn said: “I still see Chelsea as the outstanding favourites as I can’t see them dropping the points.

“I don’t see Chelsea losing until the end of the season. They will draw one of those games and win the other. I think Tottenham will draw at least one of those games as well.”
