Andre Villas-Boas tips Chelsea for Premier League title
Former Blues boss believes London club have what it takes
Wednesday 12 March 2014
Andre Villas-Boas has tipped his former club Chelsea to ease their way to the Premier League title.
The Portuguese believes that his fellow compatriot Jose Mourinho has the experience to see his side first over the finish line.
Chelsea are currently seven points clear of both Arsenal and Liverpool at the top of the table, following their 4-0 win over Tottenham on Saturday.
Villas-Boas was also dismissive of Liverpool's title hopes.
"I think it will come down to a test between Chelsea and Manchester City - although Arsenal are very, very close," he told The Sun.
"City have more strength in depth, although they have not used the rotation system that much.
"But Chelsea have the experience and the knowledge to be able to cope with the pressure in a situation like this."
The 36-year-old, who has been recently linked with the vacant managerial position at Zenit St Petersburg, also hailed his former boss Mourinho.
"Jose is a very experienced manager in times like this," he said.
"So Chelsea will be right in it at the end and if I had to choose one out of the three, it would be Chelsea."
