Gallas makes Premier League title claim in snub to Liverpool and Man City

Former Arsenal defender William Gallas has boldly claimed Tottenham or Chelsea will win the Premier League title over Liverpool and Manchester City this season.

Tottenham and manager Jose Mourinho underlined their title credentials on Saturday with an impressive 2-0 win over City while earlier in the day Chelsea beat Newcastle by the same scoreline.

After nine games for most teams, Spurs are top of the league table, level on points with champions Liverpool, two clear of Chelsea and eight ahead of City.

On Sunday, Chelsea host Tottenham at Stamford Bridge, in what will be a clash between Gallas’ two old teams.
