Miguel Angulo is confident Valencia can derail Chelsea in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday night.
The Blues have lost only once in 14 Champions League outings at Stamford Bridge under Jose Mourinho and are in the hunt for a remarkable Quadruple.
But Valencia, who travel to London on the back of a 3-2 win over Espanyol, are confident they can upset the formbook.
"Chelsea are a different side to three years ago," said midfielder Angulo.
"Then they won the Premiership title easily, but this year Manchester United are very strong and it has been more difficult for them.
"They will go for it because they have struggled previously to get past the quarters of the Champions League."
Valencia are expected to be without former Liverpool striker Fernando Morientes, who dislocated his shoulder on international duty and David Navarro is serving a lengthy suspension for his part in the mass brawl which marred their game against Internazionale in the last round.
But with the second leg at the Mestalla Stadium on 10th April, Angulo added: "It will be important not to lose and we are capable of scoring."
