Man City chief Vieira impressed by Chelsea buying spree

Manchester City chief Patrick Vieira feels a new-look Chelsea have a good chance of defending their Champions League crown successfully.

Against all the odds, last season's winner was Chelsea, who upset Bayern Munich in their own backyard to win the final on penalties.

Vieira rates their chances highly: "They have some of the best young players in Europe, including their excellent new signings Eden Hazard and Oscar.

"There could be a bit of a transition period because some of the older players are set to be replaced by these young players. But they've started really strongly in the league and are the defending champions, so you just can't rule them out."
