Champions League: Manchester United target flops while fullback wanted by Chelsea thrives

Hazard overcame early rough treatment to work at the heart of Chelsea's attacking threat, but Jan Oblak delivered a fine display in goal, and the Belgian is sure they can do better, no matter what calibre opposition they face in the next round. In the end, Roma's win against Qarabag made the result irrelevant for Diego Simeone's team, who failed to qualify for the last 16 for the first since the 2009-10 season.

Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has revealed who he wants his former side to draw in the next round of the UEFA Champions League. Juventus and Basel also completed their passage to the next round, joining Barcelona, Besiktas, Manchester City, Tottenham, Manchester United, PSG and Roma who qualified as group winners, and Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Juventus and Basel as runners up.

Chelsea have won six of their last seven Premier League games to hoist themselves up to third place after losing to Burnley, Crystal Palace and Manchester City in their opening seven fixtures.

"No, we are not happy", The Evening Standard report he said when asked about finishing second in the Champions League group.

Atletico Madrid were eliminated from the Champions League after a 1-1 draw at Chelsea that denied the English side top spot in Group C.

Which teams are through to the Champions League Round of 16 stage? We know PSG and Barcelona are very good but we are Chelsea so we have to be ready for everything.

"We should have scored more goals, won the game and finished first in the group, but we draw". Barca are also restricted in terms of who they can face in the last-16 as they cannot be drawn against fellow Spanish sides Real Madrid or Sevilla - or Juventus, who they shared a group with.

Manchester City: Bayern Munich, Juventus, Basel, Real Madrid, Spartak Moscow, Sevilla, Porto or RB Leipzig. From that point onwards it is a free draw so group-stage rematches and any all-Premier League clashes could be back on the agenda from that point onwards.
