Chelsea are capable of winning this season's Champions League, according to former Blues boss Glenn Hoddle.

Wednesday evening's 4-0 win over Sevilla secured progression to the knockout stages as group winners for Frank Lampard's side.

They also currently sit third in the Premier League, just two points adrift of leaders Tottenham Hotspur.

But it is on the European front where Hoddle believes Chelsea stand their best chance of picking up silverware.

Hoddle told BT Sport: "You can’t look past Bayern Munich because they are so powerful but you have got to put Chelsea up there.

"For me at this moment, they are above Barcelona and above Real Madrid.

"They are two massive clubs but Chelsea’s team is better than theirs.

"In this moment in time I think they [Chelsea] have got to be looking at at least the semi-final and you get to a semi-final, anything can happen.

"And they have international players who are going to get better as the season goes and if the crowds are full and we are back to full houses – we haven’t seen this Chelsea side inspired by a crowd and the bigger the occasion the better the best players are.

"There is more to come from Chelsea."
