Michael Owen and Joe Cole are in agreement that players would choose to sign for Chelsea over Arsenal! Here’s their reason why!
Owen said, ‘They’re on the same points in the Premier League, on the same goal difference in the Premier League, and in the same round of the Europa League. It’s pretty much a level playing field, but which team would you prefer to play for? ‘Which team do you look at and go, wow what player, good team? Everyone says Chelsea are under a big cloud, but I’d prefer Chelsea every day of the week over Arsenal.’
Cole agreed with him by adding, ‘Because the expectation is that they (Chelsea) have always got to be there (competing for titles), which Chelsea have been for the last 20 years, it becomes a crisis quicker than it does at Arsenal,’ Cole added. ‘With Arsenal, they’re probably not going to win anything, they’re in a ten year transitional period. Chelsea demand to win things. ‘If you’re a player, you’d much rather move to Chelsea than Arsenal, there’s a better quality of player there and you’ve got more chance of winning things.’
