Chelsea winger Malouda wary of Marseille threat

Chelsea winger Florent Malouda says they must be wary of Champions League opponents Olympique Marseille this week.

Chelsea beat Zilina 4-1 in Slovakia a fortnight ago to start their Champions League Group F campaign in style, but France international Malouda says Marseille will want to make their mark against the English champions.

"Marseille will be a difficult one because if you look at the recent years the French teams have done well in the Champions League," said Malouda.

"Last year they had two teams in the last eight. It is big for Marseille, they were champions last year and were waiting a long time, so they will want a good start.

'They won't want to come to Stamford Bridge and lose 4-0 like Bordeaux did two years ago. I can tell you it will be difficult in both games. Over there it is a big atmosphere but we are used to that."
