Maurizio Sarri had rules Chelsea out of the race for Premier League title, saying that they are not yet at the same level as Man City or Liverpool.
As reported by Ian Baker of The Telegraph, Chelsea boss thinks that his side are yet ready to compete for the title, despite winning their opening games in the Premier League.
He said: “At the moment, I can answer Manchester City or Liverpool [are the contenders]. We need another step, I think, to be at the same level.”
Italian boss went on to say whilst he is certainly hoping to be proven wrong, he thinks that his side won’t be able to compete with Man City and Liverpool for the Premier League title.
“I think that this season is too soon for Chelsea, but I hope not. It’s very difficult to close a gap of 30 points at the beginning of the season. To close that gap in only one season is very difficult. But I think also we need to improve, and we can improve.”
The Blues have recorded their fifth straight win against Cardiff City this weekend, but it still looks like Sarri will not be totally convinced of his side’s chances for the league title.
