EPL 2023/24: Petr Cech rates Chelsea’s chances under Pochettino; Here is his prediction for Chelsea in 2024
Cech believes Chelsea’s pre-season form will help them at the start of the 2023/24 Premier League campaign.
Chelsea have been undefeated in their pre-season matches so far this summer.
Pochettino’s side have secured victories over the likes of Fulham, Brighton and Wrexham FC.
They won the Premier League Summer Series and the Florida Cup.
“Chelsea have had, so far, a very good pre-season. They invested in the team, they changed the manager, so they will generally have the highest expectations,” Cech told Sky Sports (via Football Daily).
“And they will want to do much better than [they did] in the last season and they’ll want to be back in the Champions League and fight for the top places.”
He added: “As I said, one thing is to have a successful pre-season, other thing is to start well and get points in the Premier League. But I think they can be positive going into the first [few] games.”
