Following Chelsea’s 1-0 victory over Ajax on Wednesday, former Chelsea defender Jason Cundy claimed every Premier League club excluding Manchester City and Liverpool would love to be Chelsea at the moment.

Under the management of Chelsea legend Frank Lampard, the Blues now have a blend of youth and experience with a promising group of young British players.

Cundy told talkSPORT: “Outside of Liverpool and Man City, I think Chelsea are the club everyone else wants to be.

“Liverpool and Man City are the side everyone wants to be, they are the benchmark, they are miles away, the best two sides by some distance.

“But everyone else would love to be in Chelsea’s position, [to Man United fan and co-host Andy Goldstein] in a heartbeat you would swap.

“Spurs would love to be Chelsea. They would LOVE to be Chelsea, 1000 per cent.”

He added: “Arsenal would, 2000 per cent. Manchester United, 10,000 per cent! United would love to be Brighton!

“I’ll tell you why, Chelsea have a legend back in charge and there is real direction over where the club is going.

“Looking to the future, there is not a club out there that doesn’t want to be Chelsea right now.”
