Chelsea legend and idol Gianfranco Zola has been telling the media how he thinks we can win the league.
The Italian wizard played for the Blues from 1996 to 2003 and scored a hatful of lovely goals – so the fact he has been bigging us up as title contenders certainly will not go down very well with the Chelsea fanbase.
In an interview with BT Sport over the weekend, Zola said we needed to make sure we kept our rhythm and work rate in every game if we are to be successful.
“If they can play their level of performance physically throughout the year, then they can have a say,”he said.
“When they go forward, they are a joy to watch. But they have to play with that rhythm all the time which isn’t easy in the Premier League.”
Is Zola’s assessment accurate? Let us know what you think…
