Chelsea will be in four competitions next season, including the UEFA Champions League, and Arsenal legend Paul Merson has suggested that Chelsea should open their purse and buy at least four players to provide cover for the tired legs.

He told Sky Sports: “They have been outstanding this season. To be more than 40 points better off than last season is a phenomenal feat. They were poor last year, but they have been brilliant under Antonio Conte to win the league.

“The only thing you would you say is when they had to play games in quick succession they looked tired and were well beaten by Tottenham. They played once a week for most of the season but over Christmas they did look tired, so I think they need another wing-back, centre-back and forward for next season.”

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.
