Chelsea boss Roberto di Matteo says they'll take seriously their European Super Cup final with Atletico Madrid.

Having swept to the top of the Barclays Premier League in style with nine points from three games, Chelsea turn their focus to Friday’s European date against Atletico Madrid, in Monaco.

"We will take this game very seriously," said Di Matteo, who has already won the FA Cup and the Champions League in less than six months since taking over from Andre Villas-Boas.

"It is not a friendly. It’s another European trophy we want to win. We will not be resting people. It is a very important game.

"We’re happy to go into the European Super Cup final with three wins and hopefully we can win another international trophy for Chelsea."
