Joe Cole, an ex-England midfielder, has backed Chelsea to win the Champions League this season.
Cole also told SportsMail that he expects at least two Premier League clubs to reach the competition’s semi-finals.
This year, England is represented by Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool, and Manchester City.
“I’d be surprised if we didn’t have at least two teams in the semi-finals, if not three or four.
Cole stated, “I just think we are so much stronger than the other leagues.”
When asked which of the English teams could win the cup in May, he replied, “It’s very difficult.” If you want me to make a prediction, Chelsea is the team to beat (to win it). But there’s more.
“Any of the four teams can beat anyone else and we’ve got the four best teams in Europe.”
