Chelsea have since qualified for the Champions League knockout stage, and the Blues did it in style by topping Group E, and went unbeaten in the group.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard will be hoping for an easy draw, having met Bayern Munich in last season’s round of 16 encounter.

Chelsea last won the competition in 2012, as Roberto Di Matteo led an unlikely Chelsea side against all odds to lift the Champions League trophy for the first time in the club’s history. Frank Lampard was part of the squad and captained the team in the final in the absence of John Terry.
