Chelsea earned a hard-fought 2-0 victory over Hull City at Stamford Bridge last night, thanks to goals from Diego Costa and Gary Cahill.
Chelsea are now eight points clear at the summit of the Premier League with this victory and Graeme Souness thinks Chelsea are a level above other teams because Chelsea do not look vulnerable, even when playing badly.
“For me, you saw a Chelsea team that were not going to lose that game or the lead. At 1-0, they didn’t look too concerned,” Souness told Sky Sports.
“The difference between this Chelsea team and all the others; when the game does turn and they are do turn, even for a five-minute period, that’s when you are vulnerable and they do not look vulnerable.
“I think the rest of them, the chasing pack, when the game turns and they’re not on the front foot, they look vulnerable.
“This Chelsea team are a really, really solid outfit that can win games without being at their best, and they did that today in the second half.
“When a team goes to Liverpool or these other teams, and they have a defensive attitude, Liverpool and others can find a way through and score goals.
“But in doing so, they become vulnerable themselves when the game turns and for me, this is the difference between Chelsea and the rest.”
