Chelsea last won the Champions League in 2012, and in recent years, the Blues have struggled to go past the second round of the Champions League.

However, Sevilla boss Julen Lopetegui has rated Chelsea highly, and he believes that Chelsea are one of the teams who has what it takes to win the Champions League.

“We are against one of the teams that can win the competition in Chelsea,” Lopetegui said in his press conference ahead of facing Chelsea.

“We need to perform well tomorrow, that’s the only thing we can do.”

Meanwhile, former Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, has revealed that Chelsea do not have what it takes to win the league this season, due to his side’s poor defending.

“No, Chelsea are not contenders [for the title],” Hasselbaink told Sky Sports.

“They are leaking too many goals. It is a breath of fresh air to see them going forward with the likes of Mason Mount and Werner.

“But the defence is a worry, if they cannot improve the centre-backs and goalkeeper it is a concern. Alisson wins Liverpool points, but that doesn’t happen with Kepa. Chelsea need to improve in that area.”
