Chelsea won the Premier League last season despite struggling in the months of August and September. Chelsea looked a different side from October last year and went on a winning streak that enabled the Blues win the Premier League last season.
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is still wary of what Chelsea can do and hailed the team after the 1-0 loss yesterday.
He said: “We’re in September. Chelsea won 13 games in a row last season. They were unbeatable, they won the league. It’s not easy.”
But he believes Chelsea being in Europe this season will make it more difficult for the Blues.
He added: “Of course this season they play in Europe. It’s a little more complicated for all the teams.”
