The prolific Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan thinks that Chelsea are a much improved team since he left Man Utd to move to Spain.
He thinks that Carlo Ancelotti has made them much more motivated and harder to beat, but he still thinks Atletico can cause an upset!
“Chelsea have more quality, are more experienced and are a much bigger threat than they were in my time at United,” Forlan said in the Daily Mirror.
“They lost at the weekend, but, for me, they are the best team in the Premier League. With the arrival of Ancelotti, he has made them stronger in defence and more dangerous going forward.
“Ancelotti has really motivated players like (Didier) Drogba, (Michael) Ballack and (Nicolas) Anelka. The absence of Drogba for the Champions League makes it difficult for them and is good for us.
“But we are prepared for Stamford Bridge and we know we can cause an upset and hopefully I can score. I always get a reaction from the English supporters but that only inspires me.”
