Simeone says he really likes Chelsea and says they work hard, have balance and says they will prove to be a difficult opponent on Wednesday.

Diego Simeone spoke before his side's clash with Chelsea in the Champions League at the Wanda Metropolitano on Wednesday night.

The battle between Courtois and Oblak will be an interesting one. Is one of them better than the other? 

They are the two best keepers in the world. I really like them both.

Costa returns from England with the tag of being a problematic player. Do you think it was the lack of sun and the bad weather that caused some of that?

No comment.

Your opinion of Conte's Chelsea?

This Chelsea is different from 2014. I am a big fan, they work collectively with balance and last season they won the league in the manner that they did. They are a very tough opponent with a manager with the ability to tell them what he wants. It's a difficult and very nice game.

Do you understand the comparisons between you and Chelsea?

Many teams look for different things to give them the chance to win. In the case of Chelsea, with Conte, they are not like us. He has always played the same way. There are similarities in terms of working but they are not like us, because he played and worked in the exact same way in his previous teams, at Siena and at Juventus.

In England, they think is it a battle on the touchline. Who is better? Simeone or Conte?
