According to Graeme Souness The Blues lack depth in terms of quality match-winners.
Chelsea demolished Manchester United in a 4-0 clanger yesterday with Hazard scoring the third and Costa in form throughout the Stamford Bridge clash.
Goals from Pedro, Gary Cahill, Hazard and N’Golo Kante rained on Jose’s return to Stamford Bridge.
After the final whistle Souness gave his opinion on whether or not the Blues are still title contenders, he believes so, but only on this condition.
Graeme Souness told Sky Sports:
“Can they win it? Of course they can win it.
“But it would mean keeping [Eden] Hazard fit and performing, [Diego] Costa fit and performing – because do they have enough in the squad if anything happened to them? I don’t think so.
“They were very impressive [on Sunday]. I thought it was a very Italian performance. They did not have to have all the ball.
“They had less of the possession but they had the better chances and got the goal early on, which dramatically changed the tactics of Manchester United.
“Scoring so early gave Chelsea an enormous lift and the back three obviously works.”
