Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola believes the Blues have been helped by not playing in European competitions in their unbelievable run of seven wins in seven games that put them top of the league:
“This is an advantage certainly because there are teams that have more games but thats not a guarantee [that Chelsea will win the league],” Zola told Sky Sports.
The Italian also claimed that, anyway, to win the league won’t be so easy:
“You really have to work hard to win this league because there are five or six teams that are there and they have the credentials to do that.
“Chelsea will have to perform the way they are doing at the moment and if they do that they stand a good chance.”
