Chelsea were in last season’s group of death in the Champions League, as the Blues managed to qualify as second from the group, before facing eventual winners Bayern Munich in the second round.

Frank Lampard will definitely be aiming to avoid one of the tournament’s heavyweights in the round of 16 this time around, as he’d seek to top the group.

Timo Werner who scored a brace against Rennes on Wednesday night, has revealed that the goal is now to win their remaining games in the group and qualify as group leaders.

“I think we had a very good game today, we played very well. I think both penalties were right, so we go 2-0 in the first-half,” Werner said after the match.

“We have one more man on the pitch and we can control the game. In the end maybe, we can score a bit more, but in the end, we win 3-0 at home and that’s all we wanted.

“We want to win the group and this is a big step in the right way. We want to win the next game in the Champions League after the international games and then we will go to Seville and try to win this game as well. We want to go far in this competition.”
