Chelsea hero, Michael Essien, has backed Thomas Tuchel’s men to win the Champions League this year.
Essien stated this ahead of Chelsea’s Champions League quarter-final first-leg tie against FC Porto on Wednesday night in Sevilla.
The ex-midfielder won the Champions League with Chelsea in 2012 when they defeated Bayern Munich in the final in Germany.
However, the Ghanaian believes the latest crop of players under Tuchel can do what he and his former teammates did nine years ago.
“I think they [Chelsea] can win it [the Champions League],” Essien told talkSPORT.
“If they win the Champions League, that would be a great achievement for the players and the football club.”
Meanwhile, Bayern Munich won the Champions League last year.
The Bundesliga champions defeated PSG 1-0 in the final to lift the trophy.
