"I fancy and this might hurt Chelsea supporters - Spurs for the title. I really do. If you look at their front three, they've got Gareth Bale, Harry Kane and Heung-min Son.
"On paper that is the best front three in the country and then on the bench, as replacements for that front three, they've got Steven Bergwijn, Carlos Vinicius and Lucas Moura.
"Then in midfield, they've got so many options. They've got Dele Alli, who doesn't even play, Tanguy Ndombele, Pierre-Emile Hojberg, Harry Winks.''

Liverpool who are the reigning Premier League champions are currently occupying third position on the table with 17 points after eight games played so far.
