Former Premier League defender William Gallas has suggested that he “cannot see any club who can beat” Chelsea as they are a “scary” opponent for anyone.
Chelsea have been on an upward curve since the appointment of Thomas Tuchel last season. The former PSG and Borussia Dortmund replaced Frank Lampard in January.
The German helped the Blues rise up the Premier League table as they eventually finished fourth.
Chelsea lost in the FA Cup final, but they got the better of Manchester City to win their second Champions League trophy.
They signed Romelu Lukaku in the summer and they have made a strong start to the new campaign.
Tuchel’s men are unbeaten from their first five league games. They host Man City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Ahead of that game (as cited by Football London), Gallas has claimed that Chelsea can “beat any records” this season:
“They are the champions of Europe. They look stronger and stronger. If they are really focused they can beat any records, especially now they have Lukaku.
“This is a scary team for any opponent to play. Manchester United fans may think they have a stronger team with Ronaldo back, but if you take every player position by position then I believe Chelsea is stronger than United.
“I really can’t see any club that can beat them. Tuchel is a perfectionist and he always has a tactical plan. Whenever he plays against the league’s best managers, he always finds the solution. Chelsea can win the Premier League, definitely.”
“Chelsea’s midfield is maybe the best in the Premier League.
“Romelu Lukaku gives them more strength and belief they can score those goals they were missing last season. All they need now is Lukaku to score more goals in the bigger games and that will make a big difference.
“They are going to have an unstable period because that’s part and parcel of football, but they are looking the most likely team to win the Premier League.”
