Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount hasn’t given up hopes of reaching the Champions League last eight despite the 3-0 loss suffered at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.

Chelsea were well beaten by a superior Bayern Munich side in front of our home fans, but Mount insists that anything can happen in football.

The Chelsea youngster said: “We have to be positive, anything can happen.

“We saw in the [2012] final between Chelsea and Bayern that anything can happen in football. 3-0, you never know, and we need to go there with our heads held high and try to perform to the best of our ability.”

Chelsea legend and manager Frank Lampard has seen a lot of comebacks in the Champions League and even played in some, but the Blues boss didn’t sound too optimistic ahead of the return leg in Germany.

Lampard said after the game: “We have to go to Munich and play with a lot of pride and see what we can do there.

“We can’t consider too much the scoreline in terms of how we approach it. It’s pretty clear we are in a very bad position going into the second leg. It’s a show of character, that’s all we can do.”
