Former Arsenal player Charlie Nicholas believes Chelsea’s absence from Europe has helped the club focus on the Premier League and says the battle for the Premier League title will become a ‘level playing field’ again after the latest round of Champions League fixtures.

He told Sky Sports: “Everyone is talking about Chelsea and the advantage of their lack of European football but after this game [against Basel on Tuesday] Arsenal don’t have the Champions League until February now and there’s a level playing field again.”

He believes Chelsea will have it more difficult when every team switches focus from Europe to the Premier League alone.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
