Chelsea legend Frank Leboeuf has rated Chelsea’s chances of winning the Champions League this season following the 2-0 victory over Porto on Wednesday night.

According to Leboeuf, it will take ‘something amazing’ for Chelsea to win the Champions League as he expressed his surprise at them being rated the second-favourites to lift the trophy.

“I am really [shocked],” Leboeuf told ESPN.

“We talked with Jurgen Klinsmann about the fact that Bayern Munich is not done yet. I know the bookies are wrong.

“You can say you have a feeling but you can’t say Chelsea have a chance to win the Champions League, you have to be far away from really thinking that.

“Of course, in one game you don’t know what can happen and it happened for them when they played Bayern Munich in 2012, playing the final in Munich. It’s possible.

“But they will have to be more consistent up front, stronger in the middle of the park to just hope of winning something.

“Manchester City, Bayern Munich, PSG – I think are still better right now than Chelsea.

“It will be a lot of circumstances to see Chelsea getting the trophy. I wish them, I really wish them but it will be really something amazing.”
