Salomon Kalou has warned Manchester City that they cannot buy their way to the top of the Premier League.

The Chelsea forward believes that new signings are not the key to success and claims his Stamford Bridge side are still the team to beat.

“Just because you bring in 10 new players every year doesn’t mean you are going to finish top of the table,” Kalou said.

“City did the same thing last season and finished fifth and I am not sure if they’ll be any stronger this time.

“Spending a lot of money on new signings doesn’t guarantee anything. There are still teams like Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool who will always be at the top.

“Manchester City can do well because they have brought good players in this year but the reality is on the pitch. You can have 10 new players and it doesn’t guarantee you anything.

“It’s good to keep the same team. This is the squad that won the league and FA Cup double last season. We know how to win. We’ll try to bring some youth players through and they will show their quality. From there, we will have a good squad ready for the Premier League and Champions League.

“We are still the team to beat; we are the champions. But everyone will come hard to try to beat us.

“Since I’ve joined Chelsea [in 2006], we always fight with Manchester for the title. This year, we will be fighting with four good teams Manchester, Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City.”
