Former Manchester United star Paul Parker has described the Chelsea squad as overrated and not good enough to finish in the top four.
“Honestly, I think that Chelsea’s team is overrated,” former Manchester United defender Parker told BeMyBet.
“I never really understood why they signed Kalidou Koulibaly. He is lumbering and he is not doing anything.
“They don’t have a great goalkeeper or a great centre forward. N´Golo Kante is past his prime and Jorginho is not performing at all.
“I really don’t see them being able to compete to finish in the top four. The midfield is lacking creativity.
“Mason Mount still has a lot of work to do to prove people wrong.
“I think that they are lucky to have Graham Potter but they don’t have a single Graham Potter player in their squad.”
Meanwhile, former Chelsea defender William Gallas has described Koulibaly as a panic buy.
“Chelsea were linked with [Josko] Gvardiol last summer and they should have got him then,” Gallas told Genting Casino. “Instead, they got [Wesley] Fofana and Koulibaly.
“Chelsea panicked in the summer. They saw some players and put a lot of money towards them when for me, they did not meet their value.”
