Chelsea and Villarreal will play each other in the Super Cup final at the Windsor Park Stadium on August 11.

Chelsea are Champions League winners while Villarreal are Europa League champions, and the two sides will meet next Wednesday for the 46th edition of the Super Cup.

Villarreal boss Unai Emery has admitted ahead of the game that he is keen on beating Chelsea to win the Super Cup.

However, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has employed a more laid back approach as he has said that he’s full of respect for Villarreal and Emery and is rather too glad to start the season with such a tie.

He told UEFA: “What nicer way to start the season than with a European final! I have huge respect for Villarreal and Unai Emery. I mean, they will have to call [the UEFA Europa League] the Unai Emery Trophy soon! He’s incredible.

“I think they will approach this game feeling they have nothing to lose. We will do all we can to take the trophy, though.”
