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.

Frank Lampard's side secured their place in the knockout stages with last night's 4-0 win over Sevilla. The young Chelsea have performed very well this season, and expectations from them have been steadily rising. During the summer transfer window, Roman Abramovich spent a lot of cash strengthening his team, and it seems that these expenses have paid off so far. Therefore, former Blues midfielder Joe Cole, criticizing Juventus and Barcelona, ​​called Chelsea one of the main chances of success in this year's competition.

“There's a fearlessness about them. Second youngest squad in the Premier League,”

the former Blues star told BT Sport.

“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.”
