Former Chelsea star, Claude Makelele believes the club’s new manager, Maurizio Sarri can make history at the club.
Sarri has led the Blues to four consecutive wins in the league, followimg his appointment after the dismissal of Conte.
Makelele is pleased with the calibre of players at the club, and expects trophies this season.
“I think Chelsea changed a lot,” Makelele told reporters. “Before now you have a lot of teams in the Premier League, it’s competitive.
“Manchester City, Manchester United, and also the smaller teams have good players. So it’s going to be difficult for them to win the Premier League. I’m confident.
“He [Sarri] still has good players, [Eden] Hazard is there, [N’Golo] Kante is there. These kinds of players give a different story about Chelsea than the way we knew Chelsea before.
“I think he has the capacity to make history for Chelsea again.”
Chelsea will host Cardiff City on Saturday when the Premier League resumes following the international break.
