EPL: Avram Grant names strongest squad, best defender in Premier League


Former Chelsea manager, Avram Grant, has identified Thomas Tuchel’s side as the team that currently has the strongest squad in the Premier League this season.

Grant also named Antonio Rudiger, one of the best defenders in the Premier League.

The 66-year-old Israeli stated this ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Everton on Monday night at Stamford Bridge.

“When you ask me this question, the first thing I am looking for is if they [Chelsea] have the players or not because you need a strategy, you need a lot of things but you need to the players to do it, and I think they have good players now,” Grant told Dubai Eye 103.8 Sport.

“They have a very good goalkeeper, and they have good defenders. [Antonio] Rudiger, for me, is one of the best defenders in the Premier League, and you see it now when he’s playing, and they have good midfield players, [N’Golo] Kante and others.

“They have spent a lot of money. [Kai] Havertz is a big talent, other players from Ajax, Timo Werner… I think they have the [strongest] squad, they need to put them together, but I don’t see any other team that has a better squad than them. Maybe in terms of attacking, you can say Liverpool because they have [Mohamed] Salah and others. But if you look at the midfield and others, I think [it’s true].”
