According to former Chelsea boss Glenn Hoddle, Chelsea have a better team than Spanish clubs Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Hoddle told BT Sport: “Looking at the teams that are there, obviously Liverpool and Manchester City, they are going to be there and or there abouts.
“For City it’s their No 1 priority whether they tell you that or not, they want to win the Champions League.
“You can’t look past Bayern Munich because they are so powerful but you have got to put Chelsea up there. For me at this moment, they are above Barcelona and above Real Madrid.
“They are two massive clubs but Chelsea’s team is better than theirs.
“In this moment in time I think they have got to be looking at at least the semi-final and you get to a semi-final, anything can happen.
“And they have international players who are going to get better as the season goes and if the crowds are full and we are back to full houses – we haven’t seen this Chelsea side inspired by a crowd and the bigger the occasion the better the best players are.
“There is more to come from Chelsea.”
