Joe Cole: Chelsea will win the UEFA Champions League this season despite poor Premier League current form; Here is why this will happen.
This might be a little bit of an exaggeration by Joe Cole but he doesn’t think this is what people think it is; an Exaggeration.
Chelsea winning the UCL this season I mean the thought alone could feel so far fetched but it might actually not be far from the truth.
Could it even happen?
Well Joe Cole thinks it is possible even when we all think it may not happen or too far from happening.
Joe Cole talking about Chelsea winning the UCL he said;
“I think Chelsea are one of 10 or 11 teams that can win it. Cup football, you have to do it on the night. Chelsea have players who can do it on the night against anyone. It’s also a welcome distraction, the league form hasn’t been as good as Chelsea would have hoped. The Champions League becomes like a respite because nobody is expecting Chelsea to win it. It’s not a free hit but gets you out of the shackles a little bit and that can springboard to the league form.”
He added: “I think it’s a great game. I think the crucial part of the game, people have talked about Bellingham and Fernandez in midfield, is how Chelsea play out through the back, whether they go four or a three, and through Dortmund’s press. That’s crucial. I think Dortmund they set traps for you, the trap you down one side. I think Chelsea have to play through the lines and have to get players on the ball in comfortable positions in the final third. That’s where the game lies. Particularly early on is a danger for Chelsea.”
Well, I can’t say that I share such confidence, but I guess you have to be in it to win it! I just need a bit of Cole’s confidence I think!
