Djilobodji hails ex-Chelsea pal Traore: Unstoppable for Lyon

Dijon defender Papy Djilobodji is full of praise for Lyon's attackers - including former Chelsea teammate Bertrand Traore.

Djilobodji, on-loan from Sunderland, isn't surprised by the impact of Traore since he left Chelsea for Lyon over the summer.

He said: "Everyone can score. What is impressive is the variety of their profiles. There is Mariano Diaz, you feel that as soon as he has the ball he will not let go, he really wants to score.

"(Memphis) Depay is a high class player, he can make exceptional gestures, unexpected. (Nabil) Fekir, it's impossible to take a ball from him.

"And Bertrand (Traoré), whom I knew in Chelsea, technically he is very, very good: with his feints, he is very hard to stop."
