Ex Manchester City right-back Micah Richards, have revealed that Chelsea are the dark horses of the Champions League.

Richards has admitted that he is surprised at the success new boss Thomas Tuchel has achieved within a short time at Chelsea, as he was one of those who criticised the sacking of Frank Lampard.

Micah Richards has hailed Chelsea’s form, and backed Chelsea to reach the finals of the Champions League.

“Chelsea are dark horses you know,” Richards told Super 6 podcast.

“I did a piece a couple of months ago saying it’s a disgrace that Frank Lampard is out the door. And then Tuchel comes in and I was like, ‘how’s that? No!’

“But actually look at them now. They’ve only conceded like two or three goals. They’ve got Porto next and then Real Madrid or Liverpool. Neither of them are playing that well and then next thing, they’re in the final!”
