Micah Richards rates Chelsea's Champions League chances and makes Tuchel-Lampard admission

Micah Richards believes Chelsea are ‘dark horses’ in the Champions League after being proved wrong by Blues boss Thomas Tuchel. The former Manchester City and England defender admits he was disappointed by Chelsea’s decision to sack Frank Lampard in January and felt it was a mistake. The Blues are in pole position to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League, while they will be favourites to advance to the semi-finals of the Champions League ahead of their quarter-final tie with Porto. "Chelsea are dark horses you know," Richards told Super 6 podcast. "I did a piece a couple of months ago saying it’s a disgrace that Frank Lampard is out the door. And then Tuchel comes in and I was like, “how’s that? No!” "But actually look at them now. They’ve only conceded like two or three goals. They’ve got Porto next and then Real Madrid or Liverpool. Neither of them are playing that well and then next thing, they’re in the final!" Chelsea avoided Premier League rivals Liverpool and Manchester City – and European giants Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain – in the Champions League quarter-final draw.
