Chelsea play host to Sevilla in our opening Champions League game on Tuesday night.

Sevilla are highly rated of late, and they did well to win the Europa League last season, beating English sides Wolves and Manchester United enroute to winning it.

Sevilla boss Julen Lopetegui believes that Frank Lampard’s side are a very good team, and he revealed that Chelsea have been playing good football recently.

“Yes, it is going to be a tough ask, every match is difficult, especially when you are talking about the Champions League and playing against a team such as Chelsea,” Sevilla manager Julen Lopetegui said at his pre-match press conference.

“But our intention is to win, like we do in every stadium and every match. We have to perform well, I don’t think the start of the season counts for much at the moment.

“They are a great side, with fantastic players and have performed very well this season. Lately, they have been playing sensationally and they are going to force us to produce our best performance both defensively and offensively. We need to perform very well tomorrow.

“Chelsea like to dominate the ball, as we do, so I think it is a match between teams who have two different types of players, but who have the same idea – which is to dominate games. That’s what we need to be prepared for.”
