Chelsea will be away at Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday night, and Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has warned his former teammates of Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann.

Griezmann is widely regarded as one of the best forwards in Europe, and the former Blues midfielder has explained exactly why he poses such a threat to Chelsea.

“The player Chelsea have to particularly watch out for tomorrow is Antoine Griezmann. I really like him, he’s such an intelligent player,” Lampard told the London Evening Standard.

“Griezmann is not a typical striker as such but still scores a lot of goals. He plays as a false No9 if anything. That makes him hard to pick up.

“Every pass is the right pass and he always chooses the tight option. No wonder so many big clubs are prepared to pay silly money for him.”
