Feb 19, 2018, 08:10
Cesc Fabregas has warned his Chelsea team-mates to not underestimate Barcelona's ageing midfielder Andres Iniesta.
The Blues host the runaway La Liga leaders at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday, with the second leg at Camp Nou three weeks later, and Conte has been busily studying them for weeks - though has warned his side not to focus exclusively on Lionel Messi.
Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, has admitted that his team must produce the "perfect game" to get the better of Barcelona in their Champions League last-16 tie.
"He's still good; for this type of player age doesn't really matter", Fabregas said.
"We played with the Spain Under-21s together. I think he would fit in perfectly [at Chelsea], and there are already several Spanish players there".
"But we for sure will work together, work with the team, but not just to try to stop him: if we focus on just man-marking Messi, it can be very unsafe". I saw him as a team-mate.
"I used to look up to [Pep] Guardiola because he was playing in my position; I used to love Luis Figo when he was at Barcelona".
Although Conte admits that his charges will need to turn in a massive performance if they want to progress against the Spanish giants, he feels that the Blues could cause an upset if they manage to make the most of being in possession.
