The Englishman who was at the end of United’s Defensive Exploits during Ferguson’s era have tiped the blues ahead of Manchester United to do well this season.
Rio Ferdinand believes the team from West London would go far in the Champions League out of all of the English Premier League teams.
“They are a very well balanced team,” said the former Manchester United defender.
The manager works hard and from what you hear from within the camp, he drills them daily on tactics and they have an understanding of each other as individuals and as a team. In that sense, they are our best hope, as an English team.
