Jamie Carragher has likened the current Chelsea crop to the great Manchester United counter-attacking sides under Sir Alex Ferguson.
The Blues eased to a 2-1 win against derby rivals West Ham United at the London Stadium on Monday night to strengthen their claim for the Premier League title.
Eden Hazard combined with Pedro Rodriguez to break the deadlock in the 25th minute as the visitors caught out West Ham on the break at the London Stadium.
Chelsea doubled their advantage in the second half through Diego Costa after the Spanish centre-forward netted his 17th goal of the 2016-17 season.
Antonio Conte’s moved 10 points clear of their closest rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the title race courtesy of their win against the Hammers.
Speaking to Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football show about Chelsea’s counter-attacking performance, Carragher admitted that Conte’s side reminded him of some of the great Premier League champions in the past.
“Watching Chelsea in the second half as the game was going on, you think of the great sides who have been champions over the years like the Manchester United teams who were devastating on the counter-attack with Giggs, Sharpe and Ronaldo, the Arsenal team and the Chelsea team with Duff and Robben,” Carragher said.
