Cristiano Ronaldo put Chelsea in the top tier bracket of Premier League clubs currently due to their consistency.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Manchester United’s number seven labelled the Blues, Manchester City and Liverpool as the three most advanced sides in the country because of their ability to repeatedly pick up results.
“The football, the league, to win the league, it’s a marathon, not a 100m sprint,” said the Portugal captain.
“You have to be consistent. This is why the best team right now in England is probably Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea because they are more consistent than other teams.”
