Jason Cundy thinks that Chelsea are in a better place than title rivals Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal at present.
Chelsea ended Tottenham Hotspur's unbeaten record in the Premier League on Saturday, putting Mauricio Pochettino's men to the sword 2-1 at Stamford Bridge, and are top of the table with 31 points from 13 games.
Liverpool sit in second with 30 points, while Manchester City are third, also on 30 points. Arsenal are five points further back, in fourth.
Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool have been in good form, while Manchester City and Arsenal continue to look strong – but Cundy says Chelsea are in a better place than any of the trio.
The former Blues defender said on Chelsea TV: "It feels to me at the moment that we are in a bit of a better place than them [Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester City].
"I think we feel a little bit more stable with the team that we are picking, which is consistent – it's the sixth game on the spin [it’s been the same], the first time in 26 years that's happened", Cundy continued.
"There is consistency."
Cundy though highlighted a concern about boss Antonio Conte relying on the same players week in, week out.
"The problem with that is we might be one or two injuries away from it coming apart."
Next up for Chelsea is a visit to Manchester City on Saturday, a game then followed by West Brom heading to Stamford Bridge.
