Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has stated that Chelsea are still “two or three” players short in order to be able to compete for the title.

The Blues could only conjure up a 1-1 draw against Manchester United on Sunday which has kept them in the hunt for top four spots for Champions League qualification next season.

Maurizio Sarri’s side currently sits fourth in the table with a two-point cushion over arch-rivals Arsenal but have been scrutinised heavily for their inconsistent displays across the campaign.

Paul Scholes seems to think that Sarri needs to bring in some serious reinforcements if they are to bridge the gap between them and the runaway top two in Manchester City and Liverpool

Speaking to the Metro, Scholes said :

“What they’ll do if Hazard goes I’m not too sure, that’s obviously going to be a big problem [as] whatever team he’s out of is going to suffer.

“I enjoy watching them, I think they’ve got some good footballers, but have they got enough to challenge for the league?

“I think they are two or three players short on that.”

Scholes further went on to add: “I don’t think Chelsea are that far away, I enjoy watching Chelsea, I just think there are a couple of issues they need to sort out,

“Right at the start of the season I thought there was always going to be an issue with Kante and Jorginho.

“Especially in the away games, you’ve seen the away games against the big teams, he doesn’t have the legs to get around the pitch.

“At Chelsea he’s fine, it’s tight, it’s close, he doesn’t get exposed. I think in away games he gets exposed.”

Chelsea will look to make it to their second Europa League final in as many attempts when they take on Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday.
