In response to the fixture, Blues manager shared his opinion as he believes Atletico Madrid are just like any other strong side that only requires work to defeat.

“Most people will say toughest one we could have had. But all draws are difficult in the Champions League. We have to have belief in ourselves. It is what it is,” Lampard said.

“They are top of La Liga. They knocked Liverpool out last year. They have experience and quality. One of the toughest on paper. We need to turn up and do our job.”

Both sides look to battle each other in the second month of the coming year.
