Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has done his homework ahead of the game against Sevilla.

Chelsea and Sevilla are through to the second round of the Champions League, and Wednesday night’s game could determine who come out tops in the group.

Lampard has admitted that he’s expecting a difficult game against the Spanish side as he hailed some of their qualities.

Speaking ahead of the game, Lampard said: “I think they are a fantastic team, we felt that when they played at Stamford Bridge, it was a difficult match for us.

“I think they have a really great coach, that’s very evident when you watch his team play that he’s a top coach, the style of his team, the work he must do behind the scenes.

“They have a lot of threats that remind me of Premier League teams, in terms of their attributes, their physicality, the speed of their game, their willingness to cross balls into the box and the energy of the team.

“So I expect a really tough match.”
