Chelsea take on Portuguese giants FC Porto after beating Spanish league leaders Atletico Madrid in the last round.

Chelsea legend Joe Cole believes Chelsea are among the favourites to win the Champions League.

“Everyone would have wanted Porto,” former Chelsea and England star Cole told BT Sport after the draw was made. “They beat a really poor Juventus side on the night.

“Porto were okay, they showed that togetherness. They played very much like [Atletico Madrid manager] Diego Simeone’s teams play actually. Pepe was magnificent for them but he’s 38.

“Chelsea, with the run they’re on and the squad they’ve got, they’ve got to be favourites there. They will be delighted with that draw, that’s for sure.

“Under Tuchel, they look athletic and solid. They look like they’re all together and that’s important too.

“I think they’ve got the second best squad in the Premier League. They’re in great form so you can’t write them off. I think they’re second or third favourites now.”
