Liverpool currently top the Premier League table, and are the team everyone is talking about the most, but former England manager Fabio Capello believes Chelsea’s defensive solidity could give Chelsea the edge.
He said: “Liverpool are spectacular. What is not known is how long it will last. Chelsea are solid. (Antonio) Conte is working well. To score against Chelsea is really difficult. For me that can happen until the end.” Said Capello.
Of course, Capello shares my sentiment. While Liverpool might be a great attacking side, their defence do let them down at times, like we saw against Crystal Palace. However, Chelsea aren’t only great offensively but defensively as well. A great team needs to be balanced at both ends to win the title.
