Ahead of today’s game against Bayern Munich at Stamford Bridge, Charlie Nicholas has shared his prediction for the game.

Nicholas told Sky Sports: “Chelsea got a very good result against Tottenham; I did anticipate that if they started Olivier Giroud, they would get something.

“What Frank Lampard is doing, playing the youngsters, is excellent. I see a style, which I don’t with some of the other teams that are rebuilding.

“But they are still unpredictable. There’s a vulnerability to them.

“Bayern came and battered Tottenham, annihilated them, but they do struggle at the back and they are being questioned with RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund running them close in the Bundesliga.

“They are not as good as they have been in the past; I think they’ve regressed since Jupp Heynckes. They play narrower with Philippe Coutinho and Serge Gnabry. Gnabry has proven a lot of us wrong, as he was not cutting the mustard at Arsenal, but he has been excellent.

“But I think they will prevail here; I don’t think Chelsea are at this standard yet.”
