Sevilla manager Julen Lopetegui names Chelsea as the 'best attacking team in England' ahead of Champions League tie with the Blues and claims Frank Lampard's side could go on and win the Champions League this season

Sevilla boss Julen Lopetegui has hailed Chelsea as the Premier League's best attacking team ahead of Wednesday's meeting between the sides in Spain.

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.

Both sides have already secured qualification for the knockout stage and head into the encounter battling to top the pool, leaving Lopetegui excited by a stern examination of his team's credentials.
