Petr Cech: What I really think about Chelsea under Antonio Conte

Petr Cech delivers his verdict on Chelsea's start to the season under new boss Antonio Conte

Petr Cech has admitted that he has been hugely impressed by what he has seen from Chelsea this season and reckons that they are the heavy favourites to win the Premier League title.

The Blues have established themselves as the firm favourites to lift the top-flight crown and currently boast a seven-point lead at the top of the Premier League table.

Chelsea have earned plenty of praise for their displays under new boss Antonio Conte following the Italian’s appointment in the summer.

Cech has been impressed by his former club’s displays but feels that they are not yet home and dry in the Premier League title race.

Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, Cech said: “Well I think any team that wins 13 games in a row deserves huge credit and obviously this is where they are at the moment full of confidence.

“They just had a tricky game in the last game after their first defeat after that long run without dropping points and they managed to win it.

“So their confidence is very high and they obviously have an advantage as well in terms of points.

“But there’s still a long way to go in football and everything can go pretty fast if you are ready to take it.”
