Chelsea FC will win the 2015/2016 English Premier League title in spite of their Community Shield loss to Arsenal last weekend.

This is the opinion of Gary Lineker, a former Tottenham and England striker, who also commented on the summer’s biggest signings.

Lineker, who spoke on British Airways First Class hot seat for an exclusive quick-fire Q&A video ahead of the new league season, which kicks off this weekend, said: “It’s great to see so many fans travelling to the UK to watch a Premier League game live and believe me it’s worth the journey.

“If you can get tickets for a derby game, you’ll experience an atmosphere like never before. It’s electric. Witnessing a game where it means so much is really special; the speed, the pace, the physicality of the football, will be something that lives with you forever.”

PM News reports further that the ex-England international predicted that Chelsea will retain the EPL title because they have strengthened a bit from what they had previously, adding that their dominance from last season will not be cut short.

“For the Premier League, I’ll probably go for Chelsea again. They’ve strengthened a bit and they were so dominant last season. I’ve got a feeling for Manchester United for the FA Cup, and my old club Spurs for the League Cup – it’s about time they won something,” the former Barcelona attacker stated.

On the big money summer signings coming into the league, he said: “I think Schweinsteiger will be interesting to watch at Manchester United. Sterling going to Manchester City is going to be really interesting. A lot of money – but if he realises the potential that he has, he might turn out to be a bargain!”

Chelsea lost the Community Shield to Arsenal courtesy of a lone strike by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain at Wembley stadium, to end manager Arsene Wenger’s 13-match win less run against his Chelsea counterpart, Jose Mourinho, with both managers ignoring each other after the match.
