Arsenal legend, Paul Merson says he’s optimistic Chelsea will book a semi-finals berth if the team avoid Bayern Munich and Man City in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League.
Recall that Chelsea are currently on a three-game winning run and defeated Borussia Dortmund 2-0 to book a place in the Champions League quarter-finals.
The Blues will know their next opponents on Friday with Bayern Munich, AC Milan, Benfica, Manchester City and Inter Milan already in the draw with Graham Potter’s side.
They will be joined by either Real Madrid or Liverpool and Napoli or Frankfurt later tonight.
However, Merson is of the opinion that Graham Potter’s Blues should worry about only two of those potential opponents.
“If the Champions League quarter-final draw goes their way, bar Man City and Bayern Munich, I don’t think too many teams will want to play Chelsea.
“If they don’t meet those two then I think they’ll get through to the semi-finals,” the Arsenal legend wrote on Sky Sports.
