Former Manchester United striker Michael Owen has tweeted that he believes there’s no way Chelsea won’t win the league this season, having seen them storm to a 4-2 win against Swansea City at home.
Diego Costa, who has begun the new season in absolutely sensational form, scored a stunning hat trick to turn a single goal deficit into a comfortable lead. The Spain international has adapted to life exceptionally well in the Premier League.
Owen himself tweeted the following after watching the match.
Could Chelsea turn what looked like a competitive league into a canter this season? I don’t see how the can’t win it.

Chelsea have been installed as comfortable favourites to win the Premier League this season, having had an exceptionally solid transfer window.
Their start to the season has also seen them as the only one of the teams considered to be title contenders to remain undefeated. The likes of Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool have all dropped points, with Manchester United, an outside thought for the title, barely getting going.
