Chelsea will take on Sevilla, Krasnodar and Rennes at the group stage of the Champions League this season.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed he’s happy with the draw but also warned it is wrong to approach the competition thinking of it as an easy group.

“I am happy with the draw in the fact that we analysed straightaway the teams we are playing against, we are very aware that every Champions League group is very tough,” Frank Lampard told Chelsea’s official website.

“So I know a lot of the reaction afterwards was what a great draw it is for Chelsea but we can’t approach it with that mindset at all.

“They are very tough games, all the teams that we play, especially when you are travelling in Europe you always know you are going to get very competitive games.

“Sevilla won the Europa League last year, and both of the other teams are emerging teams that will cause us a lot of threats and dangers, so let’s see.”
