Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has revealed Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will be worried about the improvement Tottenham have made and the slide Chelsea are on despite the vast differences in wage bills and money spent on signings.
“A lot of clubs, including Chelsea, will be very envious of what Tottenham have got and the calibre of their team,” Cascarino told talkSPORT.
“Dominating London, that’s a big step for Tottenham.
“They’ve played second fiddle, not only to Arsenal for a long time, but (also) Chelsea with their success in there.
“And yes, Chelsea have spent a lot of money.
“But Chelsea are going to look across at Tottenham with a lot of envy, thinking: ‘what a great side they’ve got, a lot of years in their contracts left, players you would think are staying… the manager’s done an incredible job uniting that team’.
“Chelsea have spent and had times with incredible sides, but I think the owner, Roman (Abramovich), will look at them and think: ‘I’m paying double in wages than Tottenham do and spent a hell of a lot of money in the transfer market compared to Spurs – and they are better than us!’”
