The Yellow Submarine shared spoils with Leeds United on Saturday as they were without 3 key defenders

Chelsea will face Villarreal on August 11th for the Super Cup Final after victory over Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League final.

Villarreal saw their own victory against Manchester United after a penalty shoot out and hope to materialize a win against another English side.

But considering how strong Blues have been since Tuchel took over, Emery knows it won’t be an easy task for his boys.

Having also added Romelu Lukaku to their list, should Chelsea succeed in registering the Belgian before Wednesday then the Yellow Submarine will have more to worry about.

But prior to this, Villarreal have a red alarm already following the absence of four of their vital players.

Ahead of the game against Leeds United, the Spanish side were without Parejo, Iborra, Coquelin and Capoue.

Arguably this played huge role in their 2-2 draw against a Leeds United side that was smacked 6-2 by same Manchester United they defeated to win the Europa League trophy.

Emery hopes to have his boys back before the game on Wednesday as he has already revealed the game against Chelsea is a vital one not just for the trophy but their glory.

“I want to win the Super Cup. I’ve been involved in 2 and lost both. It would be a great way to finish off last season,” Emery said.

“Super Cup will show what we are capable of competing against a top team like Chelsea, the reigning European champions and, for me, the best team in the world”
