Bournemouth star Jack Wilshere, who faced Chelsea on Boxing Day clash at Stamford Bridge, admitted that the Blues “look like champions at the minute”.
“For me, right now, they’re the best team in the league” he told reporters just after the game, according to reports in the Evening Standard.
“They’ve found this new formation that works for them, – Wilshere added – I’ve always thought it’s a tough place to come anyway. I’ve been here a few times with Arsenal, and we’ve only won once, but they’re more ruthless now”.
Then, speaking about the 3-0 defeat last time out, the Arsenal loanee ended: “They know what the job in hand is. They go out there and – week in, week out – change their gameplan depending on who they play. That’s the sign of a top team. They’ve got a structure with Matic and Fabregas holding in there, and players like Hazard and Willian, who were both different class against us.”
