Former Chelsea star Ashley Cole sees Chelsea as one of the favorites to win the Premier League this season. He thinks that Chelsea should be fighting for the title.
Cole said, “Chelsea have gone about their business a little bit quiet in terms of having a new manager. They should be fighting for the title, but I don’t think people are [thinking that way] at the minute. To get six points from two games, it’s a fantastic start. They’ve just got to keep going.
Cole also had some words to say about his former club Arsenal. He said, “With Arsenal, there’s a new manager still, but I think the first two games they had were very, very difficult, so I think they’ll start picking up points now”
The LA Galaxy player also said that Arsene Wenger made the right choice to leave the club last season. He said, “I used to watch the games with [Wenger] in the long jacket and you don’t see that no more. But times change, people move on, and I think it was his time to go. And obviously they’ve brought in a new manager with new ideas and a new philosophy. I think it might take a little bit of time, he has to gel the players together, he’s got a few new players. To put his philosophy across and how he wants to play, I don’t think it’s going to happen straight away.”
Arsenal play their next Premier League game on Saturday while Chelsea play on Sunday. Arsenal will play West Ham and Chelsea will play Newcastle United.
