Chelsea have since sealed qualification to the next round of the Champions League, and the Blues will be happy to have topped the group after a 4-0 win against Sevilla away at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium.

Chelsea won all games in the group except the goalless draw against Sevilla at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season.

Chelsea defeated Rennes both home and away, and Rennes midfielder Yann Gboho has admitted that he was pleased to play against Thiago Silva and N’Golo Kante.

Speaking about his experience about playing against Chelsea, the 19-year-old told Ouest France: “It’s a childhood dream. In previous years, I watched them on my sofa, but then I was on the field.

“My parents looked at me, it was a lot of joy, a lot of pride.”

Asked if any Chelsea player impessed him, he responded: “Thiago Silva, for his calmness.

“N’Golo Kante because he swept up a lot of balls.”
