Speaking ahead of the midweek Champions League clash, Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has termed the European Champions as not great enough defensively despite being tickled being the contenders of most titles this season.
According to Scholes, Thiago Silva will let Chelsea down due to his age which indicates that he will not going to play every game, however, he praises German international Antonio Rudiger to be really good defensively.
" I also don't think Chelsea are great defensively, (Antonio) Rudiger has been really good but other than that, Thiago Silva is 36, he's not going to play every much."
The Englishman went ahead and gave a good statement on Andreas Christensen on how composed he is in the middle of the pitch, but stressed that the club will still struggle defensively and they will also find it hard to score goals.
" (Andreas) Christensen is a young player. In the middle of the pitch they are alright. But I'm not sure they will score enough goals and defensively be good enough."
