Chelsea won’t emulate Arsenal’s Invincibles side this season, according to Pat Nevin.

Jose Mourinho’s side are four points clear at the top of the Premier League table after nine wins and two draws in 11 top-flight outings.

While Chelsea have great depth when it comes to their attacking options, the Blues have five key defenders competing for four positions at the back.

And former Blues winger Nevin reckons Chelsea could find themselves in trouble if they suffer any defensive injuries or go deep into the Champions League.

“This week, the vast majority of the players have gone away on international duty except two notables ones: Costa wasn’t picked for Spain and John Terry not playing for England anymore,” Nevin told Newstalk.

“There are the two players Chelsea, more than anyone else, don’t want to lose.

“Can they go unbeaten? I don’t think they will.

“There will be difficulties if the stay in Europe. They will do well in Europe.

“There will come some games where they have to play kids and they’ll come unstuck.”
