Villa legend McGrath fears Chelsea will be shocked by Atletico Madrid

Aston Villa legend Paul McGrath fears for Chelsea in their Champions League semi with Atletico Madrid.

The former Manchester United defender wrote in the Sunday World: "I'm not convinced that Chelsea are going to make it into the Champions League Final.

"My boyhood team did a fine job last Tuesday night, closing down Atletico Madrid in a classic example of how to play the away leg of a European tie.

"But now they have to come out and attack a little more on Wednesday to win their passport to Lisbon next month and they will have to do it without half the team manager Jose Mourinho might have wanted to pick.

"Goalkeeper Petr Cech is gone for the season and Frank Lampard and John Obi Mikel are suspended for the match."
