Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes that Chelsea's main strength - their squad depth - could end up being their greatest weakness, should results not go their way...

Chelsea have a multitude of talent in every department. The biggest surprise though is the acquisition of Deco - the press, and indeed the fans worked under the presumption that the purchase of the Portuguese playmaker would signal the departure of Frank Lampard to Internazionale. The England international only recently signed a new five year contract.

Michael Ballack, Florent Malouda, Joe Cole, Michael Essien, John Obi Mikel, and Shaun Wright Phillips are also all vying for the four or five midfield places, and Wenger, 58, believes this could be a double-edged sword.

"Chelsea has an abundance of good players. That can be a huge strength, because the Champions League and the Premier League is a marathon, but if it doesn't go well it can be a weakness," he is quoted by the Telegraph as saying.

"There are so many players in midfield that they will have to sacrifice very experienced players. They can't all play at once."

He continued: "For a long time, I thought they would lose Lampard - that's why they bought Deco. In the end, though, they got both."

He concluded: "How will it work with Essien, Mikel, Deco, Lampard, Ballack and Cole will be interesting. But one thing you have to say is they have top quality to chose from."

Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, when in charge of Stamford Bridge, used to accuse Wenger of being a 'voyeur', claiming the Arsenal man to have an unhealthy obsession with Chelsea. He later apologised


What dyou guys make of it? Chelsea have started strong and i dont see them slipping up against Wigan... We travel to play Pompey- A bogey side... Hopefully we will win.. Time will tell?

Compared to Fergie's his mind games are rather crap don't you think?

I'm sure Fergie will show him how to do it later on in the season;)

I hate Chelsea and I'm not worried about them.
We beat them in comps last year proving we are better.
really?

2-0 at home in a match where they had loads of injuries, a man sent off and were unlucky with both goals (1 was over the 'added time' and the other was a dodgy pen)

2-1 loss away - they were the better team for 2/3 of that match.

1-1 CL again we had the luck that you need.

If anything we should be more worried about them than anyone else.

they may have beet us an dwe may have got lucky but the 2 trophies show we are a more consistent team.
We are a more consistent Team, and we have the trophies to prove it.. Chelsea have the money- but not the trophies.. Im sure in a couple of years this will not be the case.. Im also sure that our next 3 games will be important for us.. We need essentially 7 points from 9 if we can.. Win at Pompey and Anfield, a Draw a Chelsea- or go a step further and demollish their home record...
