Blues legend reveals how Chelsea will win the league this season
- Dennis Wise insists Chelsea can win new Premier League campaign if Alvaro Morata will find his place in the team
“Why not?” he exclusively told Starsport when asked if Chelsea could win the title.
“If we can get Morata getting his shooting boots on then why not? We’ve got some quality, we really have got some quality. I think with Gianfranco he will help Morata in maybe being able to get to that top level. As in regarding getting to that 20, 25 goal tally because I think that is really important for Chelsea to get to that.
“I wouldn’t write them off for sure. But I think if you want to be looking at where Chelsea want to be, they’ll want to be getting into the Champions League. That will be their first thought process and if they can actually compete and actually win this, only time will tell over the course of the season. Have they got the capabilities? Yes, they have got the capabilities because they’ve got the quality.
“And it’s about that quality at the end of the day. Producing, that’s what it’s about. Last season, unfortunately, Morata only got 11 league goals. It’s not enough, is it? We need more, we need more goals and I think that’s important. You look at the goals against, we’re competing with most of them, the top five teams. Goals conceded we’re close.
“That’s important that end but it’s also winning the difficult games. When we’ve had those opportunities to win it and we haven’t taken those opportunities.
“We’ve got to be a bit more clinical in the forward line.”
