Jermaine Jenas and Chris Sutton Express Fear for Chelsea
According to Jenas, he said: “I don’t think Chelsea can take much from those games.” The former Tottenham and England midfielder Jenas said the earlier defeats would not be weighing heavily on Manchester City’s minds. He botressed his point by saying: “In the semi-final, City had Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling and Ferran Torres up top,” “All three didn’t get a kick. They were terrible really.
“It was such a different make-up compared to what Chelsea are going to come up against on Saturday.” “This City team is a juggernaut. This is a completely different beast Chelsea are coming up against.” Also, former Chelsea forward Chris Sutton said he fears for his old club.
Sutton said: “Whether the last two Chelsea victories will have any psychological impact on City, I don’t see it that way.” “City played their ‘B’ team – not their strongest team in those games.” Adding to what Jermaine Jenas said earlier Sutton said City have had a brilliant Premier League season and they finished well. He ended his statement by saying: “But if City put out their strongest team I think Chelsea are in big trouble.”
