Spurs moved into first place on the table with a 2-0 win over Manchester City on Saturday.
And Burley thinks the Blues will prove they have more talent than Tottenham over the course of this season.
"They've strengthened their goalkeeper situation and Frank [Lampard] has mentioned that N'Golo Kante is looking like the player he was a couple of years ago.
"I just think Chelsea have better options [than Tottenham]. They're in as good shape as they can be to mount a title challenge."
