Dennis Wise has backed Álvaro Morata to dismiss Maurizio Sarri in the Premier League title.
"Why not?" He said exclusively to Starsport when asked if Chelsea could win the title.
"If we can get Morata to put on his shooting boots then, why not, we have some quality, we really have something of quality.
"I think Gianfranco will help Morata to be able to reach that higher level.

"As in regards to reaching that score of 20, 25 goals because I think that's really important for Chelsea."
Chelsea is close to agreeing an agreement for Tiemoue Bakayoko to join AC Milan on a one-season loan.
Bakayoko joined the Monaco Blues last summer for £ 40 million and started 25 Premier League matches.
But the 23-year-old struggled to adapt to the rhythm and physicality of the English game.
And Bakayoko is ready to be transferred to AC Milan today, according to the Mirror.
Sarri has warned that Chelsea will have "problems" in the first months of the season.
"We are not at the peak of our potential," he said.
"I hope to be ahead of the squad's potential in one or two months, but I do not know.
"I hope that the second part of the season is very good with many points.
"In the first half, I expect some problems in the results, maybe the performances in the first part of the season will not be in line with the potential of the squad.
"Next year I will try to change the preseason completely, if I can.
"I arrived in mid-July, then the problem was there, I had to accept it completely, but for the future, it would be better to change."
