Former Premier League defender William Gallas is certain that the title is heading to London but not Arsenal. The ex-French international centre back believes that Chelsea or Tottenham Hotspur are better equipped than the Gunners for the Premier League title. William Gallas enjoyed a unique career as he played for the three London teams before he retired.
Gallas talked about the Premier League title race via his official Instagram account on Saturday. According to him, the results earned by both Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur showed that they are title contenders. He also regretted the injury sustained by Toby Alderweireld during the league game at the weekend as he described the Belgian international as the boss of the Spurs defence.
Ahead of the week ten Premier League outing between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, William Gallas said that Spurs would miss the impact of Toby Alderweireld before adding that Jose Mourinho would be relishing the London Derby clash.
Toby Alderweireld suffered an injury in the second half of the Premier League meeting between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City on Saturday evening and was replaced by new signing Joe Rondon. Alderweireld was a colossal at the back for Spurs who beat the Citizens 2-0 to further highlight their status as a title challenger this season. Heung-Min Son and substitute Giovanni Lo Celso scored for Spurs in the first and second half respectively. The result lifted Spurs above former leaders Leicester City into top spot. They had started the weekend in second position.
For Chelsea, they also recorded the same 2-0 scoreline at the home of Newcastle United in what was the opening match for week nine matches in the Premier League. Tammy Abraham wrapped up the points for the Blues in the second half to add to the own goal scored by Newcastle United centre back Federico Fernandez.
As it stands, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool are on 20 points and in first and second respectively on the league table, while Chelsea are in third position with 18 points.
