The Spanish club won over two legs in the 2014 Champions League semifinals to get its first shot at the European title in almost 40 years.

"We want to thank him for what he did with this club", said the Italian.

Chelsea travel to Spain to take on Atletico Madrid in the Champions League this evening in a huge match for the club.

Chelsea are a bit like Atletico.

'I don't miss any aspect with Oblak replacing Courtois for us, they are the two best goalkeepers, there is no upgrade from them'.

Chelsea right back Cesar Azpilicueta said Atletico has become a risky opponent thanks to its consistency. The Spanish teams dominate Europe, in general.

Simeone's side advanced to the 2014 Champions League final at the expense of Jose Mourinho's Chelsea before losing to city rivals Real in Lisbon.

The deal will replace the £220,000-a-week contract the playmaker is now on at Stamford Bridge.

The striker, whose move back to his former club from Chelsea was formally completed this week, has been pulling on the Atleti kit for the first time since his return. Cesar Azpilicueta stays put on the right of the backline, with Thibaut Courtois in goal as Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger drop to the bench.

The striker is barred from playing in all competitions until January because of Atletico Madrid's transfer ban. He assured that his chelsea side were fit, aside from Pedro, who has a slight problem and spoke about Koke, Saúl, Morata and Diego Costa along with comparisons to Diego Simeone in his way of setting up his side.

"Only my family knows what I have been through".

He leaves Chelsea having won two Premier League titles, and the 2014-15 League Cup.

However, Costa will not be featuring in the game as he waits on the sidelines until the new year.

Can Costa produce the goods at Atletico?

Simeone last week said the Metropolitano "has the feel of a Roman circus". Don't tell Conte, but you can write that it's pointless.

Atletico opened Group C with a 0-0 draw at Roma, while Chelsea routed Qarabag 6-0 at home.
