From FOUR to TWO for English clubs in the Champions League?

The Champions League returns this week and will see the Premier League’s four clubs in the competition: Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur all attempt to progress to the quarter finals. In the coming days there are two mouth-watering clashes involving English clubs, as Tottenham take on AC Milan at the San Siro and Arsenal host Barcelona at The Emirates Stadium, before Manchester United and Chelsea take on Marseille and FC Copenhagen respectively next week. The question is, how many Premier League clubs will emerge victorious from the last 16?

bet365 fancy TWO English teams to make it through – what about you? bet365 are betting on how many English sides make it through to the quarter final stage of the Champions League and the firm are 11/10 about two. bet365 spokesman Steve Freeth “injuries mean we’ve recently eased our price on Spurs progressing and it’s no secret that Arsenal have it all to do against Barcelona.” Also Barcelona are the firm’s 3/1 favourites to be the top scoring Champions League side this week.

I am slightly more optimistic about the English clubs’ chances in the Champions League in the coming weeks. Although neither of their opponents should be underestimated, you would expect both Man United and Chelsea to make it through without too much trouble. Then there’s Arsenal and Tottenham and while the Gunners face an uphill task, I think that if Spurs can snatch an away goal in Milan and be no worse than 3-1 down, they can make it yet another magical European night at White Hart Lane in the return leg. So I’m going for THREE English clubs to make it through – sorry Arsenal fans!
