Before their game against Tottenham, West Ham manager Slaven Bilic claimed that Spurs have played the better football than Chelsea this season, and a lot of pundits have also said the same thing.
But Arsenal legend Paul Merson disagrees and has said Chelsea have played the better football this season.
“If you look at Tottenham they didn’t start the season that well, they weren’t playing good football at the start of the season,” the Arsenal legend said on Sky Sports.
“Chelsea have consistently played good football the whole way through the season. People just remember Tottenham’s last nine games and probably their last four or five games where they’ve wiped the floor with teams and won four or five-nil.
“Chelsea have played some good football. You look at the goal last week, the last goal against Southampton.
“You don’t see Tottenham do that too often in a football match. You don’t see Tottenham do that too often, bang, bang bang.
“Chelsea are not getting the credit they deserve if I’m being honest. They have been absolutely outstanding and some of the goals they’ve scored have been absolutely outstanding.
“For me, I’m a great believer that the best team wins the league and I think they’ve played as good football as Tottenham.”
I totally agree with Merson; a lot of football fans only look at the now. Tottenham only went on a winning streak of nine games, but prior to that Chelsea were bamboozling every team and playing swashbuckling football in the process, which took us on a winning streak of 13 games.
