While many have tipped Paris Saint-Germain as favourites for the UEFA Champions League title, manager Mauricio Pochettino has selected another team for the "favourites" tag.
PSG are seen by many as frontrunnners for the continental trophy after adding Lionel Messi, Sergio Ramos, Achraf Hakimi and goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma to their star-studded squad.
However, the former Tottenham Hotspur manager has insisted that defending champions Chelsea remain the team to beat for this season's Champions League crown.
"We're not a team yet. We are a club that has recruited many players this summer," Pochettino said in a news conference, as per Sky Sports.
"There are some big names but we have to turn into a team. We are a group of players who need to achieve results.
"There's a feeling that we're (PSG and Chelsea) the two teams to beat, but Chelsea are the holders so they're the team to beat, especially after strengthening their squad."
The French giants begin their 2021/22 Champions League campaign against Belgian champions Club Brugge on Wednesday night.
