Leeds United star Billy Sharp has backed Chelsea to win the Premier League title this season.
‘Chelsea’, the 28-year-old striker told High5it when asked who he thinks are going to become the champions of England at the end of the 2014-15 season.
One can easily understand where Sharp is coming from. The Blues are currently at the top of the league table with nine points from three matches and have been very impressive in those games.
Moreover, Chelsea have one of the strongest squads in the English top flight and have shown so far this campaign that they are not going to struggle for goals like they did on occasions last season.
The London giants have netted 11 goals, with star striker Diego Costa on target four times already in the Premier League (click here to read more).
Leeds striker Sharp was also asked who he thinks is the player to watch this season. His answer: ‘Falcao at Man Utd’.
Once again, not many will disagree with Sharp. Radamel Falcao joined Manchester United on a season-long loan deal from AS Monaco on transfer deadline day and has captured the imagination of the Red Devils’ fans (click here to read more).
The Colombia international striker suffered a long-term knee injury in January and missed the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, but he had already scored two goals for Monaco in Ligue 1 this season before making the move to United.
Some are concerned about how effective Falcao can be at the age of 28 and whether he has fully recovered from his knee problem, but given what he did at FC Porto and Atletico Madrid, United fans should remain optimistic that one of the world’s best finishers will turn on the show at Old Trafford.
