According to Essien, who enjoyed a successful time at the club, believes the squad assembled by Italian gaffer Maurizio Sarri can clinch the league title following their strong start to the campaign.
“It’s been good. They have had a very good start. They are playing very good football at the moment, winning games. Fingers crossed that will continue to the end. They can win it. The Premier League is there to be won, so fingers crossed,” the Ghanaian told the club’s website.
