Chelsea’s next game is a Champions League clash against Valencia at the Mestalla Stadium on Wednesday night.

The Blues lost the reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge 1-0 despite bossing the visiting side for most of the game.

A win for Chelsea in this game will seal Chelsea’s qualification for the second round of the Champions League, but Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas doesn’t think Chelsea can win this game, admitting that the Blues defence will be too exposed.

Nicholas said in his prediction for Sky Sports: “This is a very good game. Valencia beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea are much improved since and you could see that against Manchester City.

“This is the most exciting Chelsea team I have seen. It does not have the same quality as the one which involved John Terry, Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard, but they are far more exciting to watch.

“This is another cracker. These two will go through, but Napoli do not lose many games. They are still unpredictable in terms of their defence. They are powerful but, no matter who the manager is, Napoli do like to get at you and take a risk or two.”
