Gunners icon opens up and claims Chelsea are Champions in the wiating!
Paul Merson says he would be shocked if Chelsea weren’t crowned Premier League champions in the next four years
Over the last 12 months, the mood around hers has changed, with the club bringing through some of the most exciting players in the game, while also adding a few top-class players to the side.
Many believe that they will be challenging for all the major titles in the coming season, and Merson believes securing Champions League football coupled with Roman Abramovich’s recent financial backing in the transfer market will lay the foundation for greater prizes in the coming years.
“To go and beat Man City was massive,” he told Sky Sports. “It was massive because everyone is looking to close the gap.
“Chelsea have got nice fixtures between now and the end of the season, so I don’t think there’s any way they’re not finishing in the top four.”
Merson added: “I think Chelsea need a left-back, and they might need another centre-half, and then they’ll be a major force next season. I don’t think they’ll win the Premier League next season, but the gap won’t be as big.
“They mean business. The owner has been brilliant; he’s weighed it up and gone – bang! Here’s your money.
“He’s looked at the situation and thought, ‘Tottenham are struggling, Pep Guardiola won’t be at City forever,’ and he’s trying to get into the top four, close the gap and challenge when they have their chance
“With Liverpool putting up records like they have with their players being as good as they are, it’s only a matter of time before the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid come calling.
“In three or four years, I’d be quite shocked if Chelsea don’t win the Premier League.”[the_ad id=”164″]
