Alan Shearer fears there is something brewing at Chelsea "which isn't nice" as they attempt to retain their Premier League title.

The Match of the Day pundit told BBC Sport: "The top seven already are nailed on, I don't see any surprise breaking into there. I think Everton will be sixth or seventh, and the rest we know.

"But there's only one team that can win it and [Manchester] City brought [Pep] Guardiola to the club to win the Premier League and to win the Champions League, and he has to win something this year. Jose [Mourinho] will feel exactly the same at Manchester United.

"Chelsea, I do sense as if there's something brewing there which isn't nice. They need to get in another two or three players, I think, to have a chance of retaining that title."

Chelsea are 4/11 for a top-four finish at Sky Bet, but are 7/2 to retain the title.
