Sevilla boss says Chelsea are the ‘best attacking team in England’ ahead of Champions League clash

Lopetegui claimed before his team's Group E opener at Stamford Bridge in October that Frank Lampard's Blues were among the favourites for the Champions League title, and he has not changed his mind.

"It's a huge and exciting challenge against a team who could win the Champions League," the former Spain coach said.

"They are the best attacking team in England at the moment, they have great players.

"It's a real excitement to play against them and it motivates us to play our best."

Lopetegui admitted Sevilla must leave it to the last minute to assess their line-up, given the stresses of a compacted season owing to the coronavirus pandemic.

"We want to keep working and growing as a team against a very strong opponent who we'll need to be at our absolute best to beat," he added.

"I see the team working every day, they're trying their best in spite of the difficult of this season and the injuries we have.

"We've got a number of absentees but we are coping."
