Rio Ferdinand – Only these two clubs can catch Chelsea
Arsenal currently sit second in the League eight points behind Chelsea and a point ahead of North London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur. According to Rio Ferdinand, only Arsenal or Tottenham can catch the league leaders, as reported by Metro.
Although Arsenal and Tottenham are eight points and nine points behind Chelsea respectively, Ferdinand still believes they are capable of chasing down Antonio Conte’s men. The ex-Manchester United defender insisted that if Liverpool lose to Chelsea on Tuesday night, Klopp’s team will be out of the title race and instead be left fighting for a top four spot with Manchester united and Manchester City.
“There are ways of getting at Chelsea. There’s space behind their wing-backs. But they have the know-how to get a result at Anfield.”
“If Liverpool don’t win, they’re out of the title race – though in reality I see Arsenal and Tottenham as the only clubs capable of overhauling Chelsea.”
“Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City are fighting it out below them. The title race is a matter for London. Fourth place is a battle for the northwest.”
