Chelsea star Kai Havertz fire warning to Liverpool and Man City.

Liverpool and Manchester City have been fired a warning by Chelsea star Kai Havertz. The three clubs are expected to be in close competition for the Premier League title this season, and Havertz has spoken out about his side’s chances of coming out on top.

Chelsea attacker Havertz insists that the Blues remain behind Liverpool and City in the race to win the Premier League title this season.

Thomas Tuchel led his side to Champions League glory last season in highly impressive fashion.

And they followed that up with the £97million signing of Romelu Lukaku over the summer, who has hit the ground running on his return to Stamford Bridge.

That has left Chelsea as serious contenders to win their first Premier League title since Antonio Conte’s side in the 2016/17 season.

City were comfortably victorious last term as Pep Guardiola’s side found some unbelievable form midway through the season.

Holders Liverpool came unstuck by an injury crisis in defence, dropping all the way down to seventh before recovering to third.

But having also won the Champions League in the last three years, Havertz insists all the pressure is on City and Liverpool in the title race this season, with European success not enough to put Chelsea in the running.

The last couple of years, Liverpool and Manchester City have been the best and only because we won the Champions League we can’t just say this year we’re going to win it [Premier League],” the Germany international told Sky Sports.

“Of course we have the quality, we have the players to win the league but it’s not about saying that after the fourth game, it’s too early to say it.

“We’ve also said we’re the hunters of Liverpool and City, because they’ve showed in the last few years that they are unbelievable and we want to show that we are ourselves after the Champions League title.

Manchester United are also genuine contenders after bringing in some excellent additions in Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane over the summer.

Chelsea face a tough challenge against Tottenham on Sunday afternoon, with a victory in north London taking them back level on points with current leaders Liverpool.

Kick off from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is at 4:30pm.
