Chelsea need Victor Moses, Alonso to win Premier League title – Souness
Former Liverpool and Scotland player, Graeme Souness, has said that Chelsea will become champions of England, because they have players like Victor Moses and Marcos Alonso who possess intensity and physicality.
Souness claims that is the reason Arsenal are yet to win the premier League for over a decade.
He stated that both Moses and Alonso would have made a difference to the current Gunners squad.
“I used to think Arsenal were only a couple of world-class players away from winning the title, most notably a holding midfielder and striker,” Graeme told The Sunday Times.
“Now they look as many as five or six away from being contenders.
“A big reason for this has been the type of midfielder the Frenchman has signed in the past decade. This was a manager who won his first Premier League title with two giants – in every sense – in midfield.
“Yet since Patrick Viera left the club in 2005, we have seen no one in the robust mould of him or Emmanuel Petit.
“I look at Cesc Fabregas, Tomas Rosicky, Andrey Arshavin, Samir Nasri, Mikel Arteta, Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and they are all technically gifted ball-players.
“Yet they are all the same nicey-nicey types. You wouldn’t say Marcos Alonso or Victor Moses are better technically than any of those, but an injection of the intensity and physicality they have shown for Chelsea this season would have significantly improved Wenger’s squad.”
