Chelsea latest: Ex United icon backs PSG to beat Blues, Desailly, Mourinho & more

PSG

All the latest news and views from Stamford Bridge including what a former Manchester United superstar had to say about Chelsea's clash with PSG.

"I think [PSG have] got a real chance in the Champions League this year," David Beckham said to beINSport recently.

Not just in the quarter-final stage of the competition, where they are tasked with tackling a Jose Mourinho inspired Chelsea, but all the way to the end.

The media-dubbed Battle of the Oligarch clubs will be competed on Wednesday evening at the Parc des Princes and the two clubs recent form are a stark contrast to the other.

PSG are on a hot streak. They have won every single match from their last nine outings and have not experienced a defeat since a 2-1 blip suffered against Montpellier, over four months ago.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have lost two from their last four - both of whom against opponents they really should have slayed - and are falling behind in the race for the Premier League title.

Beckham continued: "They’re coming up against a Chelsea team, with Jose Mourinho as manager, he takes the team to a different level. But I do think that they have a got a good chance [to win the competition]."

Mourinho, meanwhile, believes the nature of the match, it's status and environment are all things set up for Chelsea's experience to prosper in.

"Paris is the kind of match they feel comfortable to play," Mourinho expressed on Sky Sports. "A big match, great stadium, opponents with top quality, a profile of referee that normally stops a lot, doesn't let aggression come into the game. I think they will be fine, they will be in their natural habitat in that match so I believe they can do a good match there."

And finally, a former defender and all-time Chelsea great Marcel Desailly, told talkSPORT that his old club are not out of the title picture.

"[The title is] not gone. You still have to believe and continue. This league this year is a bit special, every single team can lose against smaller opponents. We still have to believe it.”
