Dennis Wise has admitted that Chelsea FC are unlikely to be able to challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title next season.

The Blues are looking to bounce back from the disappointment of their fifth placed finish in the top flight last term as they missed out on Champions League qualification under Antonio Conte.

Chelsea FC have since sacked Conte and brought in Maurizio Sarri as their new manager to try and guide the Blues to a serious title challenge next season.

The west London side have been relatively quiet in the summer transfer window, with the Blues having brought in Jorginho and Rob Green so far.

The Blues will likely be set to make a number of new signings before the transfer window closes on 9 August as Sarri prepares for his first campaign in charge at Stamford Bride.

However, former Chelsea FC star Wise feels it is unlikely that the Blues will be able to challenge for the Premier League title as things stand.

Asked if he thinks Chelsea FC could win the title, Wise told Sky Sports News: “Do I feel we can compete with Man City? Not quite at the moment.”

Chelsea FC managed to end last season on a positive note by beating Manchester United in the FA Cup final back in May.
