PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino says Chelsea are the team to beat in the Champions League.

The Blues won last season's Champions League final against Manchester City.

"It's possible that Chelsea and ourselves are the two teams to beat on paper, looking at our squads, but Chelsea are the holders so they're the team to beat especially after strengthening their squad," Pochettino told a news conference on Tuesday.

"We're not a team yet. We are a club that has recruited many players this summer. There are some big names but we have to turn into a team.

“We know that we'll be judged at the end of the season on our results. The pressure is there for all the clubs and we know that for a number of years, the Champions League is PSG's main objective."
