Ex Chelsea player, Joe Cole has come out to say that Chelsea are fast becoming serious Champions League contenders.
He recently revealed that with how other top challengers are looking poor this season, the Blues have a strong chance in the competition.
According to him, he sees no reason why the west London giants cannot come into the mix with teams like Juventus, Real Madrid and Barcelona fumbling at the moment.
He added that Chelsea have been very fearless this season and they also have the second youngest squad in the Premier League.
His words, “There’s a fearlessness about them. Second youngest squad in the Premier League,”
“And those names you see. You might think: ‘Ah, Juventus are still there and so are Barcelona’, but if you look at each club individually at the moment, Juventus are in a bit of disarray, Barcelona’s a mess, Real Madrid, the manager is hanging on in there.
“It’s open to anyone. Manchester City, Liverpool. We could even have a situation where all four English teams are in the last four.”
“I look at those teams that are through already and none of them scare me. And I think Chelsea are right up there with the form teams, 15 games unbeaten and it’s looking rosy for them right now.”
