Frightening’ Chelsea told they need only one thing to become ‘monster team’
“I really fancy Chelsea to win the Premier League this year, just because they barely concede. Once they get Romelu Lukaku firing on all cylinders, I reckon they’re going to be a monster team,” former Spurs defender Jonathan Woodgate told Ladbrokes.
“I just love the way those full-backs bomb forward; Reece James and Ben Chilwell are just so suited to this style of play Thomas Tuchel has implemented.
“The shape suits the team, and their two central midfielders really dictate the play. I like their intensity, too, as a unit.
“Look at the depth of the squad as well; it’s absolutely gigantic. If James doesn’t play,
Cesar Azpilicueta comes in.
“If Chilwell isn’t starting, Marcos Alonso is. They’ve got Trevor Chalobah coming through, Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen.
“They’ve got so much depth within their squad, it’s frightening.
“Even Ruben Loftus-Cheek is playing unbelievably from a deeper position. For me, they’re going to be really tough to beat to the title this season.
