Many coaches and pundits last season claimed that Chelsea’s non-involvement in European football last season helped the club win the Premier League title.

However, Blues legend Marcel Desailly disagrees with such statements and has boldly stated that Chelsea won the league because they were the best in the league last season.

The former Chelsea skipper said: “Conte knows exactly what is needed to cope with the extra games. Chelsea will be in excellent shape. I am sure about that.

“There is one reason why Chelsea won the Premier League last season… they were the best team. It had nothing to do with not playing in Europe.

“They now have a new quality striker in Alvaro Morata and I am certain Conte will bring in more.

“He needs to – and I am sure he will do.”

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.
