Robson backing Chelsea to upset Liverpool

Former England and Barcelona boss Sir Bobby Robson believes Chelsea will dump Liverpool out of the Champions League.

He told The Sun: "Everybody's talking about Liverpool and Manchester United but I think Chelsea are the dark horse.

"They're chipping away and getting results all the time. I think they have a very strong squad and that's going to pay dividends."

Ex-England boss Robson claims Arsenal's failure to advance in the Champions League is because they lack a big enough squad to cope with injuries.

And he claims Manchester United and Chelsea are better equipped to mount a challenge for Champions League glory because of their strong reserves.

Robson added: "Whichever club can avoid injuries to key players will win it, but that's why you need a big squad so that's why Manchester United and Chelsea are perhaps the favourites.

"But never, ever write off Liverpool..."
