Chelsea will suffer a slump this season, says Man City midfielder
Fernando is convinced that Chelsea will not be able to maintain their stunning form
Fernando is convinced that Chelsea will suffer a dip in form at some point this season.
Jose Mourinho’s men have made flying start to campaign and are currently four points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
The Blues are also yet to lose a game in all competitions this term – but the Manchester City midfielder is certain that the west London club will not be able to keep up their stunning form.
“We know that the English league is very competitive, with big teams,” said Fernando.
“Of course Chelsea is the team that is best placed and playing better, but we know that all teams within the league fluctuate greatly.
“We did not start well, we had some difficulties, but we know that at any time Chelsea will also go through these difficulties and then we have to work to stay as close as possible.”
