Writing in his column in the Daily Star, former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson praised Chelsea’s midfield quality.
He wrote: “Chelsea now have the midfield dreams are made of after getting Saul on deadline day. What a phenomenal signing that is.
“He’s in his prime. He’s just won La Liga and you get him on loan. That is amazing. Chelsea already have three great midfielders in N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, and Mateo Kovacic.
“Saul is the fourth. They are going to need him. They are going deep in every competition this season.”
Indeed, Chelsea’s depth and quality are enviable and the Blues are now favorites in almost every competition they will compete in this season.
However, the only real question now is how the manager, Thomas Tuchel will integrate all his players in his favorite pattern of play and get valuable results.
