It was a shocking draw for Chelsea as the Blues have been drawn against Barcelona in the Champions League second round.

Chelsea qualified as second from the group and ended up meeting the Spanish giants who are currently top of the Spanish league.

Former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves analysed the chances of the five England representatives in the Champions League, and he believes Chelsea can still scale through despite a tough draw.

“Juventus are not the same as they’ve been in the past,” Hargreaves said on BT Sport.

“Tottenham I believe could get through against Juventus. I feel sorry for Chelsea fans, obviously Barcelona that’s the difficult one.

“If you’re Manchester United you’re very happy, Liverpool [too], Manchester City will be the happiest of everyone with Basel, that’s a brilliant draw for them.

“For Chelsea’s it’s really tough. Conte, with the defensive record and tactics he has he can get a result against Barcelona.”
