Chelsea 1-1 Atletico Madrid: Five things we learned

The Blues had entered the final round of group matches in pole position, but the result at Stamford Bridge and Roma's 1-0 home win over Qarabag saw the Serie A side win the group by virtue of their superior head-to-head record against Chelsea. This has been their downfall in the Champions League, they have only scored five goals in their six games, failing to net in two of their games at all.

"To get to and win the final, of course we have to beat the best teams". He won a league where it is assumed to be a two horse race (La Liga). They sit in third place in the league, six points off a Barca team who really haven't got into gear yet.

"It was a nice run". If we finished first, we could also face big teams.

Hazard celebrates Chelsea's equaliser.

Atletico Madrid were eliminated from the Champions League after a 1-1 draw at Chelsea that denied the English side top spot in Group C. The draw is on Monday in Nyon, Switzerland. This was the game that took Roma to another level.

Eden Hazard has revealed he is not concerned if Chelsea have to face Barcelona or Paris-Saint Germain in their last-16 Champions League encounter.

Unlike Torres, his compatriot Alvaro Morata has had no problems adapting to life at Chelsea and he showcased his deft touch to make space for a curling shot that flashed just wide.

"Conte has brought in the players that he needs and that's normal".

"You expect to see the very, very big teams later on".

Meanwhile Paco Alcacer, Nelson Semedo and Lucas Digne will all be hoping to start as the coach rotates his squad ahead of next weekend' s visit to face Villarreal. There was more angst to come for Chelsea in the closing minutes when Willian missed a sitter before Michy Batshuayi's stinging strike whistled wide.
