Darren Bent believes Chelsea are capable of finishing above Liverpool in the Premier League after their summer spending.
He added that the Blues will probably finish ahead of the reigning champions, who have failed to strengthen their squad this summer.
“Manchester City I think they will strengthen again, so I think they are the best team,” The ex-Spurs striker told talkSPORT.
“I think Chelsea with all the players they’ve brought in they’re just going to find a way of getting it done, they’ll finish second.
“Liverpool haven’t strengthened enough and their players look knackered to me from what I’ve seen so far, they’ll finish third.”
The Blues are currently in negotiations to sign a new goalkeeper and they have identified Rennes’ Edouard Mendy as the prime transfer target.
An opening bid worth £15m was turned down by the French outfit and reports claim that it would cost them at least twice the figure to sign him.
