Champions League: Paul Merson names favourite club to win trophy

Arsenal legend, Paul Merson, has named his favourite club to win this season’s UEFA Champions League.

Last season, Chelsea won the Champion League after beating Manchester City in the final.

However, Merson believes Chelsea or Liverpool will win the Champions League this season.

He said this after Liverpool defeated Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday.

“I watched the game yesterday and those two are not going to be a million miles away from winning the Champions League. They have got the best two defences in Europe and if you want to win Champions League football over two legs, you need to keep clean sheets,” Merson told Sky Sports.

“I think those teams have the ammunition going forward. People will say, ‘well, it was a 0-0’, but it was not a 0-0 game was it? It was outstanding. Great goalkeeping, great defending, good centre-forward play. Not great finishing, but it just showed me that both teams are bang in there for the Champions League.

“One of the two [will win it]. They are so good at the back. I watch Man City and they will give you a chance.

“I think Liverpool have got more chances of winning the Champions League than the Premier League. They can lose three more matches in the Champions League and still win it, but if they lose three Premier League games they have no chance. They have got no leeway in the Premier League,” he added
