Vialli backs Chelsea to win Champions League

Former Chelsea manager Gianluca Vialli believes the Blues will overcome their injury woes to lift the Champions League trophy this season.

Avram Grant's side face Liverpool in the semi-finals for the third time in four years having lost the previous two ties.

Italian Vialli told "Looking at the never-ending English battle between Chelsea and Liverpool, I think that the idea that 'there's not two without a third' in favour of Liverpool won't happen.

"In previous years, the Blues have had a long line of misfortunes against (Rafa) Benitez's side but this year I think they will get to the final probably playing against Manchester United for the championship and the cup and I think that at the end they will win it."
