- Match Analysis
The former Blues midfielder has completely ruled out Chelsea challenging for the Premier League title this season.
The west London side started the weekend 11 points behind current Premier League leaders Manchester City ahead of the Manchester derby.
Former Chelsea assistant manager Wilkins ruled out the defending champions in the title race despite 22 games to play in the 2017-18 season.
“It’s always a great result to take points off Liverpool at Anfield,” Wilkins told sportingbet.
“A title challenge is difficult this season because City have beaten Chelsea comfortably already and unless some of the big six start taking points off City, which they haven’t done yet, then I fear the title race could be over by Christmas and they’re romping away with the title.
“The crucial games will be the two United games against City, with Spurs also having two bites at them, and then Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool also pulling points off them with one game remaining. That’s the only way I can see City not winning the title. There is a long way to go though.”
