Jack Wilshere has named Chelsea and not Arsenal as the best team in the Premier League. The midfielder is currently enjoying a spell on loan with Bournemouth, and had to endure a 3-0 defeat at the hands of the Blues on Boxing Day.
Chelsea were forced to make changes to the team which had won the previous 11 consecutive league matches, with key players Diego Costa and N’Golo Kante both missing out, but this failed to stop them from steamrolling Jack’s temporary side.
Wilshere has now moved to praise the Premier League leaders, which may not be taken well by his employers, naming them as the best at present.
He said: “They look like champions at the minute, for me at the moment they’re the best team in the league.
“There’s still a long way to go of course, you can’t say they’re definitely going to win the league but at the minute they look like the strongest.
“They’ve found this new formation that works for them. I’ve always thought it’s a tough place to come anyway.
“I’ve been [to Stamford Bridge] a few times with Arsenal and we’ve only won once, but they’re more ruthless, they know what the job in hand is, they go out there and week in week out they change their game planning depending on who they are playing.
“I think that’s the sign of a top team.”
I hope he is not saying that Arsenal dont do that planning stuff lol
The Blues will have a chance of equalling Arsenal’s record of most consecutive wins (14) should they beat Stoke City on New Years Eve as well as beating Tottenham Hotspur in North London a few days later.
It is hard to argue that they are currently the best, having beaten all rivals in their last 12 matches, but it is way too early to name them champions, and our squad is more than capable of challenging them, as long as their winning streak doesn’t continue for too much longer!
When will the streak end? Will we actually want Spurs to win to help us tied for the record and stop their charge for the title?
