Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was heavily backed by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich during the summer transfer window, with the club spending more than £220million to strengthen the squad.
According to Sevilla boss Julen Lopetegui, Chelsea already boasted an array of riches even before our summer recruitment drive.
“They already had fantastic players in every position, but now they’ve added even more,” said Lopetegui.
“So they have lots of alternatives in every position, and they have a really attractive football philosophy – they are an offensive side with players that tie into that.
“So for us it’s about competing against a team with those characteristics.”
