‘Chelsea are my team to win the league next year’ Rio Ferdinand.
Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has predicted Champions League finalists transformed Chelsea to win the Premier League title come next season.
The Blues look a different monster under their new German tactician Thomas Tuchel, holding their own domestically and charging to the Istanbul final after defeating Atletico, Porto, and Real Madrid in the knockouts.
Rio Ferdinand believes Timo Werner will glow brilliantly next season and will boost Chelsea to Premier League glory – ahead of Manchester City, Liverpool, and Man United.
“Have you seen Chelsea’s stats by the way? Chelsea are my team to win the league next year,” he said in a video on his YouTube channel.

“Since Tuchel has come in, they are top of almost every category: goals conceded, chances created. What he’s done going in there, you can do nothing but give him applause man. It’s unbelievable.
“Werner will bang. Werner will bang next year. It’s his first year in the country. People are forgetting he’s settling in – during a pandemic by the way. This isn’t the easiest settling-in period.”
It’s difficult to oppose Rio’s claim at this point when Chelsea are playing some excellent football at the moment and Werner has managed a respectable 12 goals and 13 assists in his debut season (47 games thus far).
Tuchel’s squad are up against Man City in European football’s biggest game later this month, but funnily enough – they’re in business this weekend against the Premier League champions-elect in preparation for the big event.
