The ex Chelsea midfielder has praised the Chelsea recruitment process. The London club has spent significantly on new signings and have brought in some new players.
Add to that the current bunch of youngsters they have Chelsea are filled with attacking options. Timo Werner has already started to click plus Hakim Ziyech is also on his way.
Chelsea are going to be dangerous,” former Blues midfielder Townsend told Premier League production.
“They have got so many good options in those forward positions.
“If you think about any team when you are struggling in the Premier League, normally when you are struggling you are thinking ‘we can’t score a goal, we haven’t got enough pace in the forward areas, we haven’t got enough options’. Chelsea have got it everywhere – even full-backs are flying into the last third.
