UCL: Lampard reveals Chelsea's threat ahead of Atletico game
The former chelsea midfielder insists that Antoine Griezmann is one of Atletico Madrid main players that the Blues need to watch out for more than any other in the tie, according to Lampard “The player chelsea have to particularly watch out for tomorrow is Antoine Griezmann. I really like him, he’s such an intelligent player,” Lampard told the London Evening Standard.
“Griezmann is not a typical striker as such but still scores a lot of goals. He plays as a false No9 if anything. That makes him hard to pick up.
“Every pass is the right pass and he always chooses the tight option. No wonder so many big clubs are prepared to pay silly money for him.”
chelsea started the campaign with an emphatic 6-0 win over Azerbaijan Champions Qarabag in their first match.
The Premier League Champions are aware of the difficult task ahead when they face Atletico Madrid.
Diego Simone men drew their opening match against Roma in Itay and they will be ready to pull all string against chelsea when they clash on Wednesday.
