Frank Lampard's young and attractive team is fighting for success in the 2020-2021 Champions League season.
Former Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole believes the team has a good chance of succeeding in this season's Champions League.

Therefore, former Blues midfielder Joe Cole, criticizing Juventus and Barcelona, called Chelsea one of the main chances of success in this year's competition.
