Former Manchester City winger Shaun Wright-Phillips, who also played for Chelsea, has backed Frank Lampard to guide Chelsea to Champions League glory this season.

Wright-Phillips told Sportingbet: “Chelsea have the quality to win the Champions League this season.

“If they get the luck of the draw, they could be in with an outside chance of progressing far in the competition.”

Wright-Phillips added: “With the way that Chelsea have started the season, the sky is the limit.

“I do believe that if they can have a strong festive period, there is no reason that they can’t catch up with Liverpool – it is still a long season ahead.

“Saying that, even if they end up finishing in the top four this season, that would still be exceptional.

“With the new manager coming in and the transfer ban, that would be more than most people would have expected at the start of the season.”
