Valencia's Pablo: Chelsea strong but we need to win

Valencia midfielder Pablo Hernandez is well aware that Chelsea are a strong side but believes he and his teammate are capable of getting the required result.

The Spaniards need a victory or a score draw with the Blues at Stamford Bridge tonight if they want to progress from Group E in the Champions League and Pablo is confident that they can get the job done despite taking on a very difficult opponent.

"We know it's not going to be complicated," Hernandez told The National.

"Chelsea are one of the strongest teams in Europe and always reach the later stages of the Champions League, but we will try and win. We won't change our style and we won't try and get a draw because that's too risky.

"We're in form, too, and Chelsea are not. Maybe that will be a factor because we travel with confidence, just as we did to Manchester one year ago.

"We're not afraid. We want three points because we want to win the group."
