Former Barcelona, Ajax and Netherlands star Frank de Boer insists Chelsea are a much better team than Manchester United because the Chelsea players enjoy playing for Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri.
Chelsea are unbeaten in the league so far, winning five and drawing two games while Manchester United have lost three games already this season and are placed 10th on the table.
The players have quickly adapted to Sarri’s style despite his late appointment as Chelsea boss.
“Yeah that’s true (Sarri has changed the style quickly),” De Boer said on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football.
“They really like to enjoy the game.
“That’s maybe the difference between Manchester United and Chelsea.
“For me they are one of the favourites to go very far this season.”
Chelsea star Eden Hazard leads the Premier League goalscoring charts with six goals and De Boer admits he has been impressed with the Belgian.
“He’s continuing his from from last season and also the World Cup of course,” De Boer added.
“I love to watch him, he’s a player you come to the stadium to watch.
“Unbelievable skill, speed, technique and he can score goals.
“I think this is the Hazard that you want to see.”
