Former Wimbledon of England striker John Fashanu has tipped Chelsea to bounce back from their Super Sunday defeat to Manchester City at The Etihad Stadium.
Goals from Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany and Fernandinho ensured that the Citizens won 3-0 and are now five points clear of the Barclays Premier League champions after two rounds of games into the season.
However, Fashanu, a winner of the 1988 FA Cup with Wimbledon at the expense of Liverpool, tells Completesportsnigeria.com that Jose Mourinho’s team are still the likeliest of the big guns in England to win the title.
“The defeat to Manchester City is a setback no doubt but its a setback Chelsea will overcome.
“Every year is a year for Chelsea because they have a fantastic squad and the best manager in the world.
“Other managers are envious of Jose Mourinho because he is the best club manager. He has been successful wherever he coaches and I have no doubt that starting from their next game, there will be a turnaround in their results,” Fashanu tells Completesportsnigeria.com.
Chelsea’s next game is against West Bromwich Albion at Stamford Bridge.
