Messi: To beat Mourinho will be sensational

Messi told the Daily Star: “I am fit again and ready to take on Chelsea.

“But I demand the Chelsea defenders calm down because, against them, I always get more kicks than in other matches.

“I think that some other teams have watched what Chelsea have done and copied their tactics, especially Real Madrid recently.

“Chelsea always try to kick me the most though – just look at the last few games between us.

“But I am sure we will win this game 2-0 as there is no way we can play as badly as we did at Stamford Bridge.

“But for us to beat (Jose) Mourinho in particular, it will be sensational.”
