They can go far

Rio Ferdinand has tipped Chelsea as the team who could go furthest in the Champions League this season. as he thinks that while the Manchester sides look strong in terms of their attacking prowess, their defences both leave a lot to be desired.

Man United conceded two against Stoke on the weekend, and even let Basel have chances – something that would have punished them against other sides.

He was speaking after the first round of fixtures in the competition while on BT Sport, and said: “They are a very well balanced team.

“The manager works hard and from what you hear from within the camp, he drills them daily on tactics and they have an understanding of each other as individuals and as a team.

“In that sense, they are our best hope, as an English team.

“With the other teams, you can see deficiencies. Man United, defensively, could come unstuck against the top teams. Man City, the same.

“Attacking, they’re both fantastic, but Chelsea are very well-rounded.”
