Following a shaky start to the season, Vincent Kompany believes it is only a matter of time before Chelsea truly clicks. Burnley host Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon, hoping for a second consecutive success after defeating Luton Town in midweek.

The Blues, meanwhile, won only their second game of the season on Monday night, defeating Fulham 2-0 at Craven Cottage.
Despite spending heavily under Todd Boehly, the Stamford Bridge team has had a difficult couple of years – but Kompany believes there is too much skill in the squad for them to struggle for much longer.

“I get it, it’s always the case with big clubs you always have the pressure to get results all of the time.
“When I look at their games and what they’re doing, I see a very good side with very good players.

“It will happen for them at some point no doubt, just hopefully not at Turf Moor.”

Despite the gulf in budgets, Kompany is only focused on the task that lies in front of him.

“I’ve obviously been a part of an environment where money could be spent when I was a player. Now I’m part of an environment where you’re not necessarily far from being the biggest spender,” he added.

“I don’t have a single complaint about it.” For us, it’s all about aspiring to win games and compete, and that’s the most exciting part for me. It doesn’t really matter if people spend more or less.

“Of course, they have fantastic players, I understand that, but it doesn’t enter my mind too much.”

“The exciting part is that we can get so much better just on our own resources and that’s something really exciting.”
