Former Chelsea star, Shaun Wright-Phillips has tipped Manchester City to win the 2021-22 Premier League title ahead of the west London club.
Chelsea are the current league leaders while City finds themselves in second place in the table on 26 points from their opening 12 games.
The Blues have lost just one of their opening 12 matches and conceded only four goals.
Ahead of this weekend’s game against Manchester United, the Blues have won nine of their last twelve games in all competitions.
But despite this, Wright-Phillips, who played for both Chelsea and Man City during his active days, believes Pep Guardiola’s side’s experience in winning the Premier League title will help them prevail.
He also thinks Liverpool and West Ham United will make up the top four clubs this term.
“For me, if City do get a striker they’d most probably run away with the league I think,” he told Metro.co.uk.
“But at the minute, I still think City are favourites because they are proven over a longer time period.
“So I’m going to go City, Chelsea, Liverpool and do you know what I’m going to go for an outsider, I’m going to say West Ham might just sneak in.”

World Cup: De Bruyne, Hazard Clash In Dressing Room After Shock Morocco Defeat
A number of Belgium players were involved in a dressing bust-up after their shock 2-0 defeat to Morocco at the 2022 World Cup.
According to RTL Sport, Kevin de Bruyne, Jan Vertonghen, and captain Eden Hazard clashed after the match.
Tensions were already high after De Bruyne told reporters before the game that the team was “probably too old” to win the trophy.
Those tensions now appear to have reached boiling point, as the three players let their tempers erupt following the loss.
It is understood that De Bruyne, Hazard and Vertonghen had to be separated by Chelsea striker, Romelu Lukaku.
The emotionally-charged changing room could prove disastrous ahead of their final group stage fixture against Croatia.

World Cup: Benzema To Return To France Squad
Karim Benzema could make a surprising return to the France squad at the 2022 World Cup.
The 34-year-old had initially been ruled out through injury.
Benzema was expected to miss the entire tournament with a thigh problem.
France head coach, Didier Deschamps, opted not to call up a replacement and has continued with Kylian Mbappe, Olivier Giroud, Ousmane Dembele, Antoine Griezmann, Kingsley Coman and Marcus Thuram.
However, RMC Sport claims that Benzema could still return to the France setup as he returns to full training this week at Real Madrid.
Benzema could be fit enough to take part in the knockout stages of the World Cup.
FIFA rules permit players to return to their squads if they recover from injury if they had initially been named in the tournament squad before being ruled out.Follow Us On Social Media 👇
