Joe Cole rates Chelsea’s chance of finishing above Arsenal this season
Former Chelsea star Joe Cole has insisted that Graham Potter’s side will move above Arsenal in the Premier League table very soon this season.
Cole said that Chelsea were the most successful team in England in the last 20 years.
Speaking ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League derby with Arsenal on Sunday, Cole also said he liked Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta and the way in which he operates at the North London club.
“We have to be very mindful of what is happening at Arsenal because nothing has paid off as of yet." Arsenal have set high standards for themselves,” Cole told The Sun.
“I do like what they are doing. I enjoy watching Arsenal play, which I have not said for a long time. I like Mikel Arteta and what he does, how he sets up the team, and I like the young players.
“With their high standards, nothing significant has been achieved at Arsenal as of yet, but they are on the right path." Chelsea have battled at a different level over the last 20 years.
Chelsea is the most successful team in the country over the last 20 years. "I still feel Chelsea can more than compete and go above Arsenal very soon.”
