Chelsea legend Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has hailed the Chelsea team after their unbeaten start to the season.

Chelsea started the Premier League campaign with a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace before beating Arsenal 2-0 and then played a 1-1 draw with Liverpool away at Anfield.

Hasselbaink has revealed that it’s the game against Liverpool that showed him Chelsea can win the league, as he believes that Chelsea showed champions stuff in that match.

“This second game will tell him more than the game against Arsenal,” Hasselbaink said.

“He will get more from this team than the win against Arsenal where they played well.”

“If you told him you’re going to Anfield and getting a point he will have taken that,” Hasselbaink added.

“That’s what you need to do to be champions.

“And then with 10 men even more so. The togetherness is massive, they’ve got momentum and are in a good place. They’re right there.”
