How to topple the champions
Chelsea will be a formidable force this season
Chelsea are the bookies' favourites to win the Premiership and make it three titles in a row.

Their squad is formidable and former Chelsea star Pat Nevin expects the Blues to prove difficult to beat once more.

"The defence is strong and I expect them to sign Ashley Cole to make it even stronger," he says.

"I think Michael Ballack and Frank Lampard can play in midfield and Andriy Shevchenko is arguably the best finisher in world football.

"But the players are not Gods, they can be beaten."
