Chelsea players have been warned by Alvaro Morata that Lionel Messi will be unstoppable.

Barca meet Chelsea at the last-16 stage of Champions League and the ex-Madrid man thinks Messi will cause a lot of trouble to the Blues. Messi has faced Chelsea eight times without scoring a single goal from 29 shots his worst record against any club during his career.

“Messi can't be stopped. 'If we can get a good result here, we have to play a defensive game with spaces and try to bother them as much as possible,”  Morata told Movistar+.

The first leg takes place at Stamford Bridge on February 20, with the return leg at the Nou Camp scheduled for March 14. Chelsea have played Barcelona a number of times. The latest being in 2012 when Blues flashed out the Catalans in the semifinal of the tournament.
