Diego Simeone

Ahead of their UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night, Atletico Madrid Coach Diego Simeone has reeled out the names of four Chelsea players he fears can wreak havoc on his team.

Nigeria international, Victor Moses is not on Simeone's dreaded list that has the quartet of Alvaro Morata, Eden Hazard, Willian and Pedro.

For the Argentine gaffer, the identified players will provide the most serious threat to his Atletico Madrid backline when his side welcome Chelsea to the Wanda Metropolitano.

Wednesday night's clash with the Blues will be Simeone's 50th Champions League match in charge of the club, having taken them to the final on two occasions.

Chelsea sit top of Group C after thumping Qarabag 6-0 in their first match, while Atletico found themselves frustrated in a 0-0 draw against Roma.

The two sides are the favourites to progress, though, and it promises to be an intriguing match-up between two of Europe’s finest managers.

Simeone believes former Real Madrid man Morata – who scored a hat-trick against Stoke on Saturday – is particularly dangerous.

‘Morata is a very important player,’ he said ahead of the match.

‘He has great movement in the box, he knows how to play with his back to goal and can keep the ball.

‘He will perform really well at Chelsea alongside players like Willian, Hazard and Pedro.’
