EPL: Rio Ferdinand names club to win Premier League title this season
Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand, has backed Chelsea to win the Premier League title this season.
Ferdinand believes Chelsea will be an ‘absolute threat’ to win the Premier League this term after landing Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan this summer.
Chelsea are expected to unveil Lukaku as their new signing this week after the Belgium international completed his medicals on Monday.

The Blues finished in the fourth position last season behind Liverpool, Man United and Champions Man City.
“Romelu Lukaku guarantees you 20 goals, minimum. He guarantees you that. He has scored goals wherever he has been, he is an elite goalscorer, it is as simple as that,” Ferdinand said on FIVE YouTube channel
“If he gets the chances that Timo Werner got last year, he bangs 30-35 goals, it is as simple as that. I think Werner will still be vital for them with how he runs off the ball and creates space.
