Superstar Abhishek Bachchan is known to be an ardent Chelsea fan. In fact, he's not just supported the Blues in real life but in reel life too. In the 2007 Bollywood flick Jhoom Barabar Jhoom Bachchan Junior played the role of an ardent Chelsea fan.

He’s been at Stamford Bridge (Chelsea’s home ground) many times there after and two years later was even presented his very own Blues jersey by then Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon.

Chelsea have won the EPL four times before, with Man United having dominated the proceedings otherwise with 20 titles to their credit. However, the exit of manager Alex Ferguson has made many believe that United won’t be a dominant force this time round. And Abhishek is no different.

“It’s a tough call (to pick the Premiership winner right now). But if you ask me for my Top Four prediction for this season, I would have to say Chelsea is No 1. Then come Man City, Man United and Tottenham Hotspur at No 2, 3 and 4 respectively,” Abhishek told MiD DAY yesterday.
