Sutton, a former Premier League striker now believes Thomas Tuchel's men have everything it takes to fend off competition from rivals to win the domestic crown for the first time since 2016.
"This is why I believe Chelsea will win the Premier League – their squad is so strong and their academy players are flourishing," Sutton said as quoted Metro UK.
"Today’s performance (against Norwich) was excellent, but last month the performances have not been there. That is a tremendous mentality to have. They have a squad ready to compete at all levels," he added.
Chelsea will be out to continue their spectacular form when they take on Southampton in the EFL Cup in midweek.
Thereafter, they will take a trip to St James Park to battle Newcastle United in a league meeting.
Ole warns Man United stars
Speaking ahead of the Liverpool meeting, the Norwegian tactician admitted his team has not been good enough lately, but insisted it is about time they pushed to bounce back to winning ways.
"We’ve lost points recently that we’re not happy with. We have to take it from here and really, really get going," Solskjaer said.
