César Azpilicueta, Chelsea player, explained at a press conference that his rival this Tuesday in the Champions League, Sevilla, has the level to compete with Premier teams, as he already demonstrated last year by eliminating Wolves and Manchester United in the Europa League.
“When they don't have the ball they press hard, they attack fast … I know Julen (Lopetegui) from my time in the national team and I know it will be difficult. Sevilla already eliminated Wolves and United last season. They have the level to compete against Premier teams, “explained the Spaniard.
Despite Chelsea's bad start this season, leaving several points in the Premier and being eliminated in the League Cup, Azpilicueta is confident in the options of the 'Blues' in the Champions League.
“I think we have the capacity to fight for everything. Since I came here in 2012, I always believe and have the confidence that we will fight for everything. We have not started as we would have liked, but the Champions League is different and we have to be prepared because we play against a very strong team, “he said.
“If we want to improve, we have to improve defense. It is a problem that we have to correct collectively and individually. You cannot always rely on scoring four goals,” he added. EFE
