Former Premier League striker Alan Shearer has backed Chelsea to beat Atletico Madrid and progress to the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

He told Coral: “I would expect all the English sides to progress in the Champions League.

“It’s a common theme at the moment across Europe that a lot of the bigger teams aren’t doing as well as they would of been expected to, with many of the usual suspects not sitting top of the leagues across Europe.

“Going forwards I think they will begin to improve and get back to their best and this should be seen in Europe in the spring.

“Bayern are the worthy favourites, they were definitely the best side in the group stages which the results emphatically showed but City, Chelsea and Liverpool all have a very good chance of making it through to the quarter-finals.”
