Villarreal warn Chelsea ahead of match

Villarreal manager, Unai Emery, has made it clear to Chelsea that they will be fighting for the UEFA Super Cup trophy

Chelsea-Villarreal

Both teams face each other on Wednesday in Belfast.

Emery’s men claimed their first ever major trophy after beating Manchester United in the Europa League final last May.

Now they face Champions League winners Chelsea, who are managed by Thomas Tuchel, with the chance of adding another.

Emery dubbed the Blues the “best in the world”, but remained bullish about his team’s chances.

“If they are the champions of the Champions League then they are stronger than the Chelsea of 2019.

“It’s true that the Europa League has grown a lot. Its a good example. In two years they have made the jump.

“For me also, this situation is the challenge.

“We are going to play for a title and we are going to play against the best team in the world. We are excited about the challenge.

“We are very proud of Villarreal and to represent La Liga here,” Emery said in his pre-match press conference.
