Man Utd and Man City title challenges analysed on The Debate Live

Chelsea will compete with Manchester United and Manchester City for the Premier League title, claims ex-Blues star Craig Burley.

Having Matic protecting the back four has sured up the defensive side of things -they've conceded two goals this season, and kept four clean sheets in five league games-, allowing the likes of Pogba and Mkhitaryan the freedom to create further up the pitch.

City's strong start to the season comes after the club spent over £200million on new players during the close-season, with Benjamin Mendy, Bernardo Silva, Kyle Walker, Ederson and Danilo accounting for much of that expenditure.

The former United defender is confident Jose Mourinho has assembled a squad capable of bringing the Premier League trophy back to Old Trafford after a five-year absence.

"Man City have spent the biggest amount in the Premier League so they are the principle contenders for the title", said Herrera.

The Mail on Sunday's Ollie Holt referenced City's start to the campaign last season, where Pep Guardiola's side won their first six league games, as a warning that it may be too early to make title predictions.

"We have quality as well, but because of the money they have spent, they are the favourites".

"We will try to be there as well".

"They are obligated to win titles".

Le Saux wrote in his column for Betfair: "We have seen how destructive wing-backs Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses can be when they go forward".

Romero played a huge role in Manchester United winning the competition and qualifying for the Champions League, but he is yet to get a look in this season as De Gea has looked in imperious form. Whether that means leaving players out, playing them in different positions, over these 10 months I think he'll always be right in there with this United team.

The Argentina number one is expected to feature against Burton Albion in the EFL Cup tonight and he has insisted that he will be ready to play whenever Mourinho requires him in the team.
