Scholes ‘not convinced’ PL side have ‘enough’ to win the title

Paul Scholes is “not convinced” that Chelsea have “enough” to beat the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City to the Premier League title.

Chelsea have fared really well since Thomas Tuchel was appointed as Frank Lampard’s successor last season.

The Blues ended the league season well as they rose up the table to finish fourth in the Premier League.



Tuchel also led his side to the Champions League final. They beat Man City 1-0 to win the trophy for the second time in the club’s history.

Chelsea have started this season well as they sit top of the Premier League after seven games. Despite this, Scholes has suggested (via ) that they do not have enough to win the title:

“I think Chelsea have got the manager to challenge. I’m just not sure, not convinced there’s enough goals in the team.

“I think Romelu Lukaku will score goals but are there enough people around him to score goals. I’m not sure Timo Werner will. When he plays for Germany he scores every game, for Chelsea he misses a lot of chances.

“I also don’t think Chelsea are great defensively. [Antonio] Rudiger has been really good but other than that, Thiago Silva is 36, he’s not going to play every game.

“[Andreas] Christensen is a young player. In the middle of your pitch Chelsea are alright. But I’m not sure Chelsea will score enough goals and defensively be good enough.”

Scholes added: “Mason Mount, he needs to start scoring goals. I think he’s a great player but he’s got to start winning games, almost in the mould as Frank Lampard.

“I see him as that type of player but Frank produced all the time and won games for his team. Mason Mount has to start doing that.”

“I don’t think they are on the same level as Liverpool and Manchester City.

“You can win the Champions League if you don’t have the best team. But the championship you can’t. That’s why third place would be the highest of feelings for Chelsea.

“Thomas Tuchel also benefitted in the final from the madness Pep Guardiola put on, playing without a defensive midfielder.

“But they were 25 (editor’s note: it was 19) points behind Manchester City in the league last season and have also been taught a lesson by them recently.”

Ex-West Ham star Payet baffled by Arteta decision at Arsenal

Ex-West Ham star Payet baffled by Arteta decision at Arsenal

Former West Ham star Dimitri Payet can’t understand why Mikel Arteta hasn’t given William Saliba a run of matches in the Arsenal first team.

Saliba joined the Gunners from St Etienne in 2019 before being loaned back the French club for the 2019/20 season.

The following summer it seemed like the young defender would be given a chance by Mikel Arteta in the first-team. However, this was not the case.



The Frenchman only featured for the club’s Under-23s before being loaned back to his home country in January, joining Nice for the second half of last season.

And for the third consecutive season, .

Marseille manager Jorge Sampaoli recently claimed that Saliba could be a “future great” and Payet can’t understand why his team-mate hasn’t had more of a chance to impress at Arsenal.

): “The new ones have all brought something different. After that, I am closer to younger players.

“So, the one that impresses me the most is “Willie” (William Saliba). Considering what he’s been doing since the start of the season, I don’t understand why he hasn’t played more for Arsenal.”

Meanwhile, Jack Wilshere believes Arsenal will miss Granit Xhaka in the coming months as he praised the passion of the opinion-splitting midfielder.

Xhaka is likely to be out until late December after suffering knee ligament damage in the 3-1 victory over Tottenham last month.

He had just returned from a three-match ban before being hit by the injury, although he escaped the need for surgery and a longer period on the sidelines.

Wilshere said: “Granit is someone I played with in my last few years at the club.

“He was always a good team-mate, a good team player. He obviously has his difficulties with the fans but that is just the type of character he is.

“He is a passionate character, he wants to do well, he is driven and wants to be the best he can be and I think the fans are starting to see that now.”
