Chelsea began the season poorly with a surprise Three-2 defeat to Burnley on the opening day however have became issues round.
Antonio Conte’s facet have since long past undefeated, choosing up spectacular wins away at Tottenham and maximum not too long ago Stoke.
And Pat Nevin believes the Blues have all the hallmarks of a title-winning facet and will have to not believe themselves not so good as Manchester United or City.
“I have been fortunate to see all three of the top teams in the Premier League in the flesh in the last week or so,” Nevin wrote in his Chelsea column.
“At Watford, Manchester City had been glowing with Sergio Aguero a natural pleasure to look at.
“And I used to be down on the south coast this weekend the place Man United beat Southampton.
“In brief, Chelsea are not in reality in the back of United in any respect rather then the 3 issues in the league.”
And Nevin thinks Chelsea haven’t any explanation why to be intimidated via free-scoring table-toppers City this weekend both.
“And as for City, brilliant as they have been, the game next Saturday could well be the game of the season so far with no obvious favourite to win,” he added.
“The figures for September are very spectacular for either side. City have a blended rating of 22-1 of their 5 fixtures whilst the Blues are a trifling 17-2 forward in our 5 video games.
“In many ways, all of it turns out like preparation for the 4 days to come back.”
Chelsea tackle City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday (five.30pm).
